Guys, thanks a lot for the answers,
Let me ask you something else:
How many satelites do you get connected to your equipments?
Here in my pathways I never get more than 6 satelites. When they say a 
receiver can connect to 33, 44 or 66 chanels, does it mean connecting to 33, 
44 or 66 satelites?
Regards, Paulo
