    Have not apprehended the query properly.

    Are you saying whether you can use your (large) TataSky dish to receive BigTV signals? Dish and LNB and universal and just by changing position/alignment, it can receive signals from any satellite. But your STB/VC are required to decrypt the encoded signals.

    Otherwise I cannot make head or tail of this post - anyone else is most welcome to solicit a reply.

    Moving thread to proper forum ...

    OK. As I posted earlier, the actual dish and LNB are universally usable for any DTH provider. You will need new STB and VC for BigTV. If you go for BigTV, you may still have to pay the full CPE (dish+LNB+STB+VC) cost and installation charges, i.e., unless you can do all those things yourself.

    I am saying that CPE costs will be charged in full because the hardware, dish, LNB, Set top box and Veiwing Card comes as a package and are not priced individually. If you really put up a fight, they may reduce Rs. 500/- from the total at most. Installation charges will also be charged because the person will come with his test equipment, check alignment, signal strength, cabling, etc.

    So your existing hardware is of not much use other than that the dish is big and capable of stronger reception.

    Going by the reviews of BigTV, I am not sure why you wish to switch to BigTV. What advantage are you going to get?
