You may not need one with that receiver, I believe that they are patchable.

I you want to get Sky from Astra 28.2, then you will need a Dragon CAM or a Sky Digibox, you may need to update it in the digibox.

I'm afraid that not many members will respond to requests for phone numbers, they may not have the time and/or inclination to deal with one to one tutorials, plus may wish to keep their forum and private details separate.

As Rolf says the dragon cam will work with a VALID sky card at the moment. You will need to a bit more work on it though by adding the box id no to it. Im sure the info is in the dragon section for how to do it. So brouse through the section and read a few threads about it.
