pc and satellite
I already have a motorised dish a topfield and a dragon,but since i have a pc a broadband connection next to the reciever,i was wondering if there was any way to utilise my pc to pick up anything not available on the dragon.Any advice on added equiptment,and if it can be run as well as the topfield would be a great help thank you.

That's because card sharing is illegal and the advertisers would face stiff penalties for advocating it .
