    Good afternoon,

    Ages ago, I acquired a PCI DVB-S tuner card, which I've never used for anything. Is there anything worth getting with setting up a DVB-S/S2 card and satellite dish in North America? I can't seem to find any good, true FTA channel lists for North America, and what I can find either appears to be religious, or non-English speaking, and all lists appear to be years old.

    Any fellow NA users out there have any success with this?

    Thanks!

    Hi, I'm switching to DVB-S2 from DVB-C and I very much need a reliable card. I do not need twin tuner, a single one is enough. I was looking at the DVBSky cards, and I read they are quite good and reliable, no issues with drivers, stand-by, freezing, shuttering, slow channel change, etc. I have a small itx home media server based on...

    @erichzann, just an FYI to say that "True Drama" and "Tiny Tots+1" channels have been added to Freesat and are now included in the DVB EPG.

    Yes, I do. I'm usually jumping between MythTV and MediaPortal, but I have been in one way or another for a few years. I am using a motor, actually a Vbox which is driving the actuator on the 10 footer. If you have C band capabilities the world really opens up. There is quite a bit of good stuff on Ku though. I like RTN (you can get a...
