If the skystar2 pc card works fine then sounds great!

Some questions though:

Is it able to unlock most / all channels on hotbird, hispasat etc? (i.e. ART, TPS)

If not, I presume there are regular software updates available to download?

Would it also work with diseqc? (not motorized at present but thinking about it)

Would you be able to run to the pc from the loop lnb socket at the back of the silvercrest sl65?

If you also have a 'normal' tv card installed, would it work to run some co-ax to the tv to watch stuff on there instead of PC, in other words in comfort, as I didn't see an output from the card just an lnb input.

many thanks,

Mark.

The majority of the 13E pay packages are secure, so you will have to do without them. ART is secure - so if you want the footy you pay for it :D. TPS is compromised, as is the Swiss SRG package.. All the standalone h/c mature content services are secure.

Thanks for that - so I take it the majority of claims that the ss2 provides unlocked channels, both by sellers and forum members are misleading then?

I have Skystar2 as well. Mainly got it for recieving 422 feeds as I cannot get them on my Technomate. With plugin I can get TPS,Cabo,C+ and loads and loads of channels. Its not misleading saying the SS2 opens channels, as its true.

There is loads of footy avail at the moment, with TPS,C+,Megasport,TV8 and lots more, and all this is avail with the SS2.

Yes, you can use a motor with it.

Get one, they are well worth the money!

Thanks for that, just won one off ebay for £30 - what's the plugin I require? am planning to use a second length of cable from hotbird dish to run straight to pc rather than receiver, does it unlock automatically or are there other things I have to do? also, there is no cd / software with it, can you recommend a site for downloads?
