The Skystar 1 will get most everything that's going, is a good card, has reasonable support and gives you the possibility to run a hardware CAM with the add-on.

It won't drive a DiSEqC 1.2 motor out of the box though, if you have one.
Not sure about DiSEqC plugins for this card either.

I personally prefer the Skystar2 at a third of the price for a starter system. Can also drive a motor.

Apparantly, the quality of the SS1 is pretty good (build, and picture/sound) though many people move on the an STB anyway.
