Satellite In-TV Card?

I usually pretty good at these things, but this has me stumped.
Is it possible to get a tv tuner card or something similar which I can feed my Sky dish cable which would in effect tune the channels for free view only.
But my dilemma is then what happens to my sky freeview card?
Any suggestions or alternatives would be mighty helpful.

I guess you mean Freesat from Sky (or a Sky subscription-lapsed card)?

Well, the FloppyDTV cards support a CI that you can then stick a CAM into that, in turn, you can pop your Sky card in but, with the FTA-ing that's going on as a result of freesat, I guess you need to ask whether it's worth it... The benefit of a Freesat from Sky card over FTA these days is really just a few +1 channels and Five's "suite", and most folk wouldn't place a bet on Five being FTA soon-ish...

Well I use the WinTV HVR 4000 with DVBviewer, I can watch BBC HD, ITV HD, Astra HD and Lux HD as well as all the Freesat channels (Dual LNB 19.2 and 28.2) works a treat for me !
