ive just moved into a new house and the previous ocupant has left a sky dish on the wall and im thinking of trying to get some use out of it. can i buy an old digi box? or would i be better with a sat card for my pc? if i bought a digi box is it possible yet to get pirate cards for them?

Sky is not hacked so if you want anything other than free to air you will need a digibox and a legit subscription. You could probably get away with turning it to 19.2E and with a PC satellite card, obtain a few encrypted channels.

You use a softcam, see the PC Card forum Doggy.
