I want satellite TV on my PC through these PCI cards that you can buy.
(The Cheaper the better)
I've seen various cards such as SkyStar 2, Win TV Nova(?) etc.

I also have seen a 80 cm dish with a LNB and wall connector for 43 quid in the lidl which comes with a morgan's kingston

(full details on http://www.lidl.co.uk/gb/index.nsf/pages/c.o.oow.20030821.p.Satellite_System)

My Questions to you Pros is

1.Whats the best budget card?

2.What channels can I get on this box (morgan's kingston)?

3.Can I run both at the same time?

Any help would be appreciated

Looks like an analogue receiver to me, could be wrong though, it doesn't say whether the LNb is a universal either. You will only receive free to air channels with this receiver and probably only analogue.

The only budget PCI satellite card that I know of, is the Skystar2, you can read about its capabilities in a couple of other threads.
