    Hi all!

    Thanks for all your help during my setup of sky. Really nice of you!

    My wife watches Law & Order EVERY night :thumbsup: , but she normally
    gets tired after one episode. Problem is, she still wants to watch that
    episode, and her watching the first usually takes my option of watching
    something else away.

    Then I thought about the PC. Is there any way to make it easy? I would need
    a DVB-S card, I think, but how about the sky card?

    I would love to hear from people who has made this work, with as little hassle
    as possible. It would give me better images, since I can stream the file through the momitsu network, directly and scaled to the Marquee.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,

    Nicholas

    It would be far less hassle to get a Sky+ box and subscription. To receive Sky One on a PC isn't easy, because there is no official Sky CAM for the PC, and the one that is sold (which needs a Sky card to work) carries no guarantees that an encrption change wouldn't render it useless. Sky+ is very simple to use.

    Thanks!

    However, that means still using an external scaler. :(

    When will sky start with HD??
