Hi All, new member although i have visited the site a few times reading through some threads of interest and thought this might be the best place to ask for some information. I know a few members have a Snipe satellite system, I have just bought one, arrived this morning and I have a couple of questions. Unfortunately I can't try the unit out until my next trip away as the line of site to the satellite from my house is blocked by trees and short of climbing up on the house roof with the Snipe under my arm I wouldn't get a signal.
So first question. I see the cable for connecting the Snipe to my receiver are different from the usual co-axial cable, do I need to use the supplied cable or will my usual ones do?
Second question, do you really need to download updates. I'm only going to be using Astra 2 for Sky, I'm guessing it has never moved position as I've never had to move my Sky dish at the house.
Any other tips or comments from Snipe owners would be very welcome. I don't intend fixing my unit permanently, up through the roof light window will do as it will give me some flexibility to move it about if I'm on a pitch with trees blocking the signal.
