Sky through Media Centre


Standard Member
I have just tried a Dreambox 500 and I'm wondering if there is a way I can use my Media Centre to do the same job as the media centre has a quad core, far quicker than the Dreambox and it will mean 1 less box under the TV. The issue I had was with the picture 'blocking' similar to when you have a poor signal although I know this is not the case so I assume it's down to the Dreambox processor.
Alternatively, if I buy a Dreambox can I use that to do the 'magic' and use my sat PCI card and Media Centre software to pick up and process the picture?
Apologies if this is covered elsewhere, I had a good look through the forum and couldn't find the answer.

Thanks, I think I found the post I was looking for and it has thrown up another few questions which I have asked in the correct place. I blame your local upper school for my ignorance.:)
