I was thinking about getting a P* dish off of Ebay along with a FTA STB to play around with. I did a general search for 'Primestar' and found numerous people selling P* recievers. Can P* IRDs be used for anything useful, most all of them I saw were $35 or less. TIA!:)

Mike, I wanna get it mainly for ku-band, you said accessing c-band birds doesnt work very well, but does it work at all, I realize there a huge differences in dish sizes, but is there even a possability? C-band access would be just a fringe beneift for me though, since ku is what I want to experiment with. Thanks again Bryan, $125 is a great price. Plus I wouldnt mind having to put in the frequency and symbol rate.

Too bad :( One more question, if I actually do get a P* dish and Pansat STB how would I go about finding the ku birds. In other worlds if I wanted to point the dish at 93 to get Telestar6 how would I know where to point the dish. Is there a website that tells elevation, skew, ect settings?
