    You need to have an Analogue tuner card in your PC...the Sky box outputs on RF Channel CH68 by default.

    got it working through channel 68, but media centre in vista will not let me watch it as it says i do not have an infra red reciever for my set top box? is there any way i can get this to work on my computer without having to control the channel from my computer i.e. just using the sky remote on the sky box?
