Can tell you that I won't get this all in one post, others will add to it. If you are looking for D**h or bev you won't need a motorized dish. You need to decide if you want HD or SD, SD needs to collect fewer birds. The Dreambox is fine. You will need a private server to provide codes to the Dream. You need to select a server depending on which service you are interested in. You can do a comparision of some of the servers at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...hl=en_US#gid=0. Once you narrow things down a bit then you can get a suggestion on dish type and lnb's. You will also need a gerneral location to be able to get a dish size suggestion.
