Errr......Why 400 pounds?

A dish and LNB is about 40 tops, a second hand set probably 20.

If you have a South facing window you could place the dish inside the
property facing the 28.2e Sats - I've done this myself in the past
mounted on a chair.

As I stated above there's currently no DVB-T2 silicon on a card AFAIK.
