Just bought a Nova S2 for my PC and started messing around with it but had a couple of questions. So far I have installed Power Cinema which came with the card which I didn't really like, and also got DVBViewer and ProgDVB which are both better (and ProgDVB is free!).

Read quite a lot on here, but all the technical talk is making my head spin! :confused

So the questions I had were;

1) When I tell DVBViewer etc to search a particular satellite which ones can I actually pick up with the standard small dish (I also have $KY HD)?
2) What are my options for coupling the Nova with something, either software or hardware to use keys etc to receive other channels?

Thanks

All you will pick up on your Sky dish without moving it will be the free to air channels which are transmitted on that satellite Astra 28.2 _http://www.lyngsat.com/28east.html
