    iam assuming you mean via a SKY STB?

    best method is using a a Scart to Svideo convertor (maplins £35) sent into a 550PRo card via the svideo input.

    Sapphire do one pretty cheap and its the best around , others may disagree.

    also consider a hauppage 150 but im not sure if it can accept an Svideo signal.


    I use a 550 pro in the set up as outlined from a Telest STB and the picture quality is superb.

    I use the hauppage pvr150 (roughly 40 quid) fed via svideo from my sky+ box, after tweaking and messing with a few registry settings the picture is very nearly as good as the live feed.

    Would those registry tweaks work on a PVR-350 aswell? If so, could you let me know what they are please as they may help with my current problem.

    Cheers
