    Hi guys -

    Sorry for asking an easy question, just can't really find a definitive answer from reading threads. I have a spare LNB output off our (now unsubscribed, but still using free channel) Sky minidish. Which TV card do I want with one input to get Freesat + whatever else I can off the minidish on my PC?

    I'm sure there're lots of options available, I'm just looking for the best cost to performance option really - something that doesn't add cpu/graphics load would be ideal.

    Cheers,
    Dave
