Quick final loop on this, getting everything installed next week. Opted for a 1m motorised in the end. E2 box gigablu UR 4K and a viark on the way also..

Goodbye (hopefully) to IPTV streams as main source of footy for a few years (at the very least here hope's!)

Why the E2? The viark even if it loses the sky channels opens far more than E2 does.

@manic01 does sky UK have some “extra” encryption or something v all the other broadcasters across EU and the globe? (Reference your note about sky maybe getting lost on Viark servers)

UK is not lost on Viark servers and only DE is available on E2 servers.

E2 servers don't have access to the k1 key that is need to decode HD channels. The server the viarks use has this information. It's easier to get that information on sky De hense HD channels on e2 boxes.

What I was stating was even if at some time the viark lost access to sky IT/DE/UK it still has more to offer than E2 stb.

E2 boxes are fantastic for freesat and recording live fta channels.

What brand of dish did you get?

Lovely. I’ve heard of them but never even seen one of their dishes.

Could you post a pic or two of the back please. I’m intrigued to say the backplate of that dish.

Thank you ☺️
Will do bud, no issues at all. Probably Tuesday onwards though. What setup have you got out of curiosity

A Zone 2 sky dish. The Zone 1 was ok, but I was too concerned about rain fade and BBC 1 :LOL: So I changed it as soon as the Sky Installer left.
