is it easy to line the dish up with the sattelite or is it a lot of trial and error?

Once you know the angle and elevation it's easy so get a sat finder it whistles when your lined up they make life a lot easier.

I've just bought a sat dish and am planning to take it to France, Switzerland and Italy next year... along with our digibox from home (with a view to receiving the same channels we do at home... missing no football)

We've set it up for a trial in the back garden, and we got a decent signal after a while. Has anyone here done similar in the countries I've mentioned above? I hope I'm not wasting my time and money buying this stuff.

Regards,

Russ

Take a look at http://www.lyngsat.com/freetv/Europe.html to see what you are likely to get in each country, but I wouldn't expect to get a full Sky lineup.
