Good day

I have a satellite free to air receiver. I would like to connect it to my pc and view/record programs. Therefore I do not need a card that duplicates my receiver but one which transfers the signal to the pc and allows the required manipulation. Could someone pse advise me what is on the market in the UK. Many thanks for any replies.

Any graphics card with a video input should do the job.

I don't think there are many video cards around that do video in, so you'd probably end up getting a Hauppauge PVR150. IMHO you'd get better functionality with a PC sat card plus suitable PVR software. The Twinhan 1022 is £32 + vat from Hisat.

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

ATI All-In-Wonder graphics cards have VIVO (Video In, Video Out) aswell as a TV tuner, plus you get the advantage of getting a better graphics card aswell as the video in/out options... :)
