I just visited the IPCopter website and found they now offer an automated dish solution
The new one from IPCopter has 2 systems. The original one doesn’t look brilliant from an engineering point of view and is not FULLY automatic. However it can be roof mounted and remotely operated which saves having to find storage space inside for the BeyonDSL system.
The Second V2 model looks much better and is only €100 more. So €1195 for the satellite dish LNB/Controller and TV receiver + €695 for the Satellite kit which includes 100 Days of access. If we use £1.10 as the currency conversion this will be £1718 for the complete system but this includes TV access as well.
This falls somewhere between the full manual option that beyonDSL offers and the full Alden system with TV (£3299). To set it up it appears you have to point it roughly east and it will then go into search mode and scan the sky until it finds the satellite. I am guessing this will take some time. The Alden system has a GPS and Electronic compass built in so will find the satellite much quicker.
I think this a system who’s compromises suite my budget and needs perfectly.
