Looking for the cheapest way to get a dual DVB-S2 card now that the BBC has decided to make BBC HD and BBC One HD DVB-S2 only and C4HD was also released on this format. This was the cheapest I could find and reviews well.
This PCI Express Dual Tuner card will allow you to watch and record DVB-S2 hi-definition digital satellite TV & DVB-S digital satellite TV as well as digital satellite radio. The easy-to-use software allows you not only to watch TV programs but also to play DVD, VCD, SVCD, CD, MP3, MP4, RM, Mov, SWF, WMV, DIVX and other media files. Works with popular DVB software e.g ProgDVB, DVBDream, and Skygrabber. It supports internet via satellite and high-speed data download. The dual tuner adds the capability to record one channel while watching another.
