88cm dish but possibly you will occasionally loose some Digi TV channels in poor weather conditions .
If you want to avoid that then 1.1 meter dish is ideal for all channels 24/7
but generally for 0.8W 88cm dish will be good enuff for the vast majority of channels in all weather
unless you are infact looking just for DigiTV package ?
i know William-1's guide says 80cm dish but really its not enuff
im afraid especially with the poor weather we get here in Eire

hope that helps : )

Thanks the fast answer. I have a 1m dish for the 0.8W. But I can't get reception from TPs which have SR30000. Every others work fine. Possible the dish size is the problem? Or LNB/tuner fault?

See pm message .
Dish size is ok
Most likely your LNB Skew is off and LNB Needs peaked on 0.8W

cheers .
