An 80 cm works fine

i would not bet on 80cm i would use 1m up to 1,20 because in the last couple of weeks feeds are downgrading a lot.

I installed a 1m dish but the guy told me i needed 1.7 which seems excessive. I have him coming tomorrow to realign it and will see then . Thanks for the replies.

I have Triax TD110 (Classed as a 1.1m in performance, actually only 1.06m) and works fine for Eutelsat 3.1E. MBC Pro Sports Feeds are fine, sometimes difficulty with the BeIN Sports feeds in poorer weather conditions. And the Digea Greece Biss package feeds are perfect in all but very bad weather conditions. And I am in North West England, so you should be ok with the same or even slightly less as already suggested by others.

eveything is working fine but having difficulties on 5572 SR feed it can't lock on it and its frustrating. Upgrading the LNB will help solve this? or is it a receiver issue as the icecrypt 3200 hd hasn't had much support as far as i can gather.

I recommend a 1.2 metre dish if I were you from my end the signal can be a little weak at times so a big dish for that satellite is recommended.:thum:
