I currently only have Sky Digi - but am looking to get a DVB card for the PC - main reason will be for BB internet as I live in a no-hoper area for dsl etc - was looking at a site - wizardsatellite.co.uk, and from what i can see if i can get a decent dvb card then i could buy their satbleeper - which i assume - and correct me if im wrong - 'because whatever you plug into it is looking for a signal it makes a noise when that is found - so presumably with the correct software the 12.99 satmeter should be all i need to set up a dish - and the dish - I plan to use an old 80cm skydish - will this be ok???? I know i need cams and programmers aswell - but dont really know why - so any info greatly appreciated, btw - does most people have their own sat meter - or do they get an eng to do it??
If you look in the PC card forum, there are several posts regarding which ones to buy and which software works well with them, some cards work with the decryption software and some don't. Providing your dish has a Universal LNB, then it will be adequate for many of the more popular satellites. The Sky Digibox is not ideal for anything other than Sky programmes and will not pick up any mature content to speak of on other satellites, as it will only handle free to air channels.
