This sounds like a satelite issue, and as such might be better answered by our fine friends in Shaw Direct.

Yes, that is correct but we do have some Shaw Direct representatives occasionally posting here.
Hey team - roryg or owen think you could help out Bobjr2005 here?
60 cm dish is the smallest you would want to get for use in Flordia, but it *should* work. 60-75 is the smallest that will work for there, but not recomended.
You will not be able to get the F2 satellite at all though.
According to the satellite footprint data I have...
STAR CHOICE offers a 24 inch dish across Canada for reception of Anik F-1. Recommended antenna size for same satellite in U.S. border areas is 75 cm (30 inches), increasing to 90 cm (36 inches) for the rest of the Lower 48. Same 90 cm recommendation applies throughout Mexico, with slightly larger sizing in Guatemala and Honduras (1.2 meter). A 90 cm antenna is advised for Hawaii.
F2 needs the next larger size, than the minimum for F1, but it isn't 100% required to get F2 (the HD channels are on F2, along with a few SD stations)
Sorry to bother you guys, but thanks for the info i wasn't sure if a 60cm dish would work, leaving in a couple of days so will not be able to get 75cm thats why i was wondering maybe i could at least get some signal with it
The signal footprint says it should work, but you won't have a good signal, 60 is the minimum dish size. You should be looking to get one of the 90cm dishes.
It is generally recommended that you use a 75 cm dish that far southeast, but you should be able to get some service with the 60 cm dish. The DSR 209 will work regardless of where you are as long as you have a usable signal strength. If you'd like, I can send you a message with some satellite settings. Let me know!
