DVB-T & DVB-S Recievers combined


Standard Member
I have a VMC that I recently built with the following spec.

Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-DS2H AMD 780G
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4850e 2.5GHz Socket AM2 Energy Efficient 1MB L2 Cache
Antec NSK 2480 MATX Desktop Case Black & Silver - With 380W EarthWatts PSU
Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB Hard Drive SATAII *32MB Cache* - OEM
KeySonic 2.4Ghz Wireless Compact Keyboard with Integrated TouchPad
LG Electronics Blu-Ray & HD-DVD-Rom Combo 16x DVDRW Black SATA
Kingston 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Non-ecc CL5

I'm receiving two freeview feeds via my Pinnacle 3010IX PCTV Dual Hybrid Pro PVR / PCI Express / DVB-T/Analogue TV Tuner.

I've just purchased a Pinnacle PCTV 4000i PCTV 2xDVB-Sat PCI card and was wondering if the two cards will both show up giving me two sat feeds and two freeview feeds, or have I got to install the Fiji pack??

The build has gone great so far and I love VMC, but I'm just starting to feel a bit out of my depth.

Any advice gratefully recieved.

You will need TV Pack 2008 aka Fiji for any official support of DVB-S tuners.
