Recording Sky on HTPC


Standard Member
Hi I am new to this forum and with setting up my HTPC to get sky etc. Could some of you guru's answer a few questions for me.

From reading other threads in this forum I gather, you need a dvb-s / dvb-s2 tuner card with a satellite feed, a cam and a sky card to be able to record anything on sky subscription channels, so if you want to record 2 things you need 2 dvb-s / dvb-s2 cards with feeds and 2 cams and 2 sky cards.

I would like to know if it ispossible to just have 2 dvb-s / dvb-s2 cards 1 cam and 1 sky card, then record the programmes encrypted and only decrypt with the can and sky card when you want to watch the programmes, or when the HTPC is not busy.

Also I have come across this card that says it will have dual dvb-s2 tuners, so would it be possible to use this card with a software cam or a usb cam or any other cam that can be used?
