hi... I need advice..I am thinking of buying a free to air / freeview combo receiver. The 2 I have seen are the Technomate 4200 Combo, and the Fortec Star Lifetime Diamond.

I wanted to know if I can patch either of these units, or am I better to buy just a dedicated satellite receiver, and keep my current freeview box. From what I can gather, the people I have spoken to, say I cannot patch either of these units. Is this true?

Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this subject...I'm new to this, and originally just wanted to get Italian tv for my Italian girlfriend. It seems if i am going to buy this equipment, I may as well get the most from it and try to patch my box!

Thanks for any advice you can give me. Cheers, Chris
