Sky HD through MCE PC



I built an MCE PC about 6 months ago and, at the time, there was no sensible, cost-effective way to route my Sky HD through it.

Has a product which allows this hit the mass-market yet or am I going to have to keep waiting? If so, doesn anyone have any idea of what products may be in the pipeline and when we might see them?


Last i heard was a capture card, but it won't decode the signal in real time fast enough. Anyone know of any other solutions?

You obviously could sync the s-video/audio into a pvr card, which is still very good quality.

Can be done with the Technotrend S2-3200 card, CI add-on, T.Rex CAM and DVBViewer. No way to integrate into MCE and it doesn't look likely either. May be possible with the new version of Media Portal and hopefully SageTV in March.
