As the title states i'm planning to cancel sky in favour of freeview.
I have a MCE computer under the plasma already so I would like to utilise that for freeview, I just have a few questions

Which Freeview card should I get? (I would prefer the choice of top up T.V for the future)

My audigy 2 zs is connected to my dolby amp via coax, does the freeview cards recieve dolby digital?

Does MCE support Series linking?

I keep MCE in standby, Will it automatically wake up If a recording is scheduled?

More to come probably

Thanks in advance

I don't know about top up TV compatibility as they insist on using their own boxes.
However if your motherboard supports PCIe cards then the dual Black Gold card will work with MCE2005 and even Vista. This gives you dual Freeview capability which means you can watch one channel and record another, record 2 channels or watch a recording and record 2 channels at the same time.

I don't know of any Freeview channels that transmit Dolby Digital; you can of course use your surround Amp to generate Dolby Pro Logic etc if it supports it.

Series linking is supported

Yes it will come out of standby to record.

Hope this helps
