this is my first post here so try to understand that I am quite the newbie in terms of satellite cards. I have two satellites receivers in my front room connected to two different satellite dishes. Both receivers have cards for encripted channels (SkyTv and D+). I have two dishes pointing to different satellites. What I wanted to do was to extend the satellite cables after splitting them, and take the cables to a switch, that I would then feed to a Satellite PC Card (like the Skycard). I understand that it is possible to use the Skycard and use a Phoenix interface to view the encrypted channels on the PC. What I would like to do is to use my card to extract the information I need to view the channels and then put it back in the satellite receiver. Is that possible? Could I view the encrypted channels WITHOUTH having the actual Sky or D+ card interfaced with Skystar? Can anyone point me in the right direction in terms of software? Thanks!
