Yes it is called a [proper] digital satellite receiver with positioner.

Once you have one of these then you only use the dodgybox for the
proprietary $ky encrypted programs. They actually cost less new than
dodgyboxes sell for second hand and can receive more channels.

I was talking about picking up other sats. but when you tune from sky , then
go back all the setting get lost. There was talk of something along the line
of a "skybuster" which fits to a scart and enables extra range , i.e. more
than just 22000 and 27500.
