We have a Canadian Shaw Direct (previously Starchoice) satellite dish and HD receiver at our place on Lake Chapala, just south of Guadalajara. We get good reception on SD and HD channels, although it can break up at times during heavy rains. That can happen in Canada also. As stated above you will need the larger E75 dish (75cm) to get aceptable signal levels in Mexico. After you have an account with Shaw, you can request a additional dish from them under their cottage program. Although it is quite possible to install and align it yourself, you should have no problem finding a satellite dealer in PV to do that for you as there are many Canadians who bring it with them to Mexico. Please note, you should buy your system in Canada and bring it with you. You may find it for sale in Mexico, but the prices will be very expensive.
