    new media center pc

    Hi,

    I'm looking at building a media center pc. I have windows 7 professional and would like to uswindows media center for freesat and sky player. Can anyone recommend a good freesat tuner that is compatible with media center and able to record? Would like to be able to record one channel and watch another or watch sky player. Is that possible? The satellite I have is pointing at a sky satellite.

    Many thanks!

    If you want a dual DVB-S2 supporting tuner then the following has been very popular ;

    It will do freesat and you will be able to record using Windows Media Center.

    Expensive though - personally i'm using a dual DVB-T (freeview) and a single DVB-S2 (Freesat HD) card in my setup. Good that this card does so much but the asking price is pretty steep.
