HI all,

sorry for barging straight in ,i hope im not in the wrong discussion area,
im new to this sort of thing although im in IT 8 years(and i thought that was confusing)(",)

anyway..

my system is a 80 cm non-motorised dish tuned into astra satelite
running through my pc which has twinhain card in it,
my fta channels work fine,bbc ,itv etc..
im using progdvb instead of twinhain software
i have also installed yankse.although i dont think the latter is doing anything



im just trying to find a way to recieve channel 4 over my system,aparently i need a cam and a card for this,?

i understand there are issues here,but im just looking to know is it POSSIBLE to recieve it without a cam and card, i.e via software or am I wasteing my time trawling the net fruitlessly...(the last 3 weeks)
i also believe that channel 4 is going fta sometime soon,is this correct??

again apologies if this is in wrong section ,im desperate at this stage to get this resolved,(herself is ready to spontaneously combust-all due to no channel4)so the pressure is on:confused

thanks for any help and great site..

regards

The only way to receive Channel 4 is to get a Freesat card and a secondhand Sky digibox, you can get the cards on Ebay, or one of our advertisers sells boxes with a card for less than £100.

Whilst you can use a Dragon CAM with a freesat card, it does not allow the stay alive updates, so would not be of use to you.

Unfortunately a Dragon CAM would set you back £70 or so, so that wouldn't be a cheap option either.
