Go for it! I've had mine 3 years this month. It will pick up C and Ku,analog and digital and can have MPEG 2 recievers slaved to it. Has a seperate coax port for the C and Ku LNBs which means no more getting up to flip the A-B switch, the reciever automatically does it for you. It is a bit more complicated unit than the older analog units but with practice and paitence you will master it in no time.

If you get one and have any questions about it's operation, feel free to contac me.:biggthump

I have the Motorola 922 and I am quite pleased with it. There is no scanning to it, you pick the satellite and the transponder, go to it and watch TV. As for searching and fine tuning, it is fairly simple. My problem was that I was used to doing everthing manually and it was hard to get used to doing it with a menu. Once I mastered the menu everything fell into place.:)

He had an old 4dtv receiver and we struggled because everytime he changed satellites we would have to take the video coax out of the MPEG receiver and put it in the 4dtv receiver because he would have to see the Menu screen. His problem was his small TV had only one place to plug into in the back.
The way to cure that is to get an A/B switch ($2.99 at Wal Mart or $3.99 at any fine electronics store), this will keep you from having to change the cables. I use RCA cables from my recievers to the TV and they also have A/B switches for them.

Glad to be of help.
