so are you only receiving Ku band with your setup?  i'm not too familiar with the Starchoice line of products.  I will guess that it is similar to DTV or DishNetwork.

wow thats good to know, thanks.  Have never come by any of those in this area.  Would be cool to get ahold of one of those that way you could do your ku on a seperate motorized dish and leave the big dish exclusive for C band.

For little Ku offset dish, you need a DiSEqC motor.

I get ku only. I've been meaning to scrounge a c band dish but it's one of those things you keep putting off and unfortunately many of the areas c band dishes have fallen prey to the scrap vultures or dish hoarders

here's this week's movies
10:03 start time listed(which in Cuba is anywhere from 9:30-11
Carnage (2011)Two pairs of parents hold a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a fight, though as their time together progresses, increasingly childish behavior throws the discussion into chaos.
No Good Deed (2014)An unstable escaped convict terrorizes a woman who is alone with her two children.
Postmortem (1998)The only thing James wants is to remain away from Scotland. One day, however, he receives a fax, a printout of an unknown person's obituary. The next day, he is charged and arrested for the murder of this person.
What Lies Above (2004)Still struggling to accept her fiancé's death in a rock climbing accident, mountain guide DIANA PENNINGTON gratefully accepts industrialist CURT SEAVER's offer to find the body using a new satellite imagery technology his company has developed. But while traversing the legendary "Snowman's Pass" with Curt and his companions HUGO and TYLER, Diana is horrified to discover the search for her fiancé is a decoy; they are in fact hunting for a fallen spy satellite
 
Sunday afternoon ~3pm
You're Not You (2014)A drama centered on a classical pianist who has been diagnosed with ALS and the brash college student who becomes her caregiver.

U could set it up stationary like Conky says if you only wanted to pull in a single sat.

I don't do alot of Ku.  If i had a STAB motor connected to the receiver that would not allow me to connect and move the C band dish independently from the Ku dish.  I believe this is why I don't have things set up this way.  I think only way to make that work is to have a seperate receiver for each dish.  I may be wrong, but that is my understanding.  Since I don't have a nice modified large dish for Ku like some others here at the site have (it is alot of custom and fabrication work), I pretty much just take what I can get on Ku with a corotor feed using C  and Ku lnb's together.  Not the best for Ku but works fine for C band which is why I primarily stick with just C band.  Thanks for your input and suggestions.

Wow, the dates on these movies you're listing is blowing me away.  Hard to believe anything that current is airing in Cuba.  Most everything they have there would be OLD!!
As far as a C dish goes, I think it would be worth the effort.  I think there is a larger offering of regular programming on C.  Then again, depends on what you're looking to do.  Alot of folks here like blind scanning for feeds, and I think Ku is the better bet there.

I'm assuming many of the movies are pirated.  I've seen some "release group" watermarks on many of the more recent movies. I saw Expendables 3 before it was at my town's movie theatre.

They also show some old movies too(mostly on Monday nights ~10pm). I've seen some good obscure old movies on CV. I actually prefer them to the "current" stuff because the acting and plots are superior
Monday night's offerings: 
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014 and The Blue lagoon 1980
