I would like to be able to view SKY (digital or plus) on a PC instead of using the normal SKY boxes then hook the PC up to a Plasma screen.
What do I need to purchase I currently have SKY+ and a normal digital receiver?

I am totally new to this so your help would be greatly appreciated.

I can view Sky on my PC through my graphics card which has a UHF input. A number of plasma TVs have a D Sub input for PCs and I think I saw one with a DVI. Some PC graphic cards are DVI and TV out. I've never done what you want to do but maybe this would be a start for you.

There is a box you can get to connect PC output to a TV, might have been on tvcables or cableuniverse

You'd better having Add-on cards like VP-DTV sat-CI, a PC card for DVB-S with CI slot and remote control and such add-on cards. They have also a digital audio output (S/PDIF) or go to www.sateuropa.co.uk
or you can find mor in what satellite and digital tv

Regards,

Arbie.
