Hi,

I am about to build a new Media PC for use with Freesat HD.

I intend to use mediaportal as the tv viewing software and i only want to view the normal Freesat and Freesat HD channels.

My current plans are to use an nvidia 8200 integrated motherboard and an AMD 4850e processor with a pair of hauppage DVB-s2 cards, will this system be powerful enough to display 720p hd?

I do not currently have a dish installed what would you recommend? i live in the south of england and have a wall that faces directly south. is there any reason why i should not buy something like this?

ebay 290229286129

it appears to offer everything i need for under £50?

Thanks for any advice you can offer

Hi,
Yes, the dish setup would be fine. You should be able to install it yourself too, if you have some DIY skills. :)

Sorry, I haven't a clue about media PC setups.
