Dear Friends,

Hello,

Could anyone help me on how to use my Pinnacle USB 2 TV Tuner Card to view TV from a satellite Dish with a Digital satellite receiver on a laptop?
What additional hardware is required for this ?
Is any special software required for this?
Can the cable from Satellite receiver be directly connected to the External TV Tuner ?
Will there be a difference in reception of Analogue and Digital signals?
Which model and brand of satellite receiver should I purchase for this purpose ?

Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated as Im going to buy a Satellite Dish TV system soon and I have a PCTV USB2.0 TV Tuner.

Thanking you,

H.S.Brar

Providing the rf output from the Satellite receiver is compatible with your TV card, then you should simply need to plug it in, does it also have a composite or S-Video input?
