"Sky" is the Rupert Murdock owned digital satellite tv company in case anyone doesn't know its a bit like tivo I suppose.
Did some research about a year ago into this for a htpc idea, only problem is now that I have actually got the go ahead to make it for my parents I can't find the info on it
. Wondering if you guys could help me with the research if you have some free time to find a few websites relating to this. IIRC you can use two methods for capturing the signal
1) Use a capture card to watch the stream on the pc from the sky box but then you need 2 remote controllers and the pc isn't actually controlling the channels
2) The inbuilt option (what I want to do) use a specific CAM pci card with a "dragon"(not sure thats the name???) chipset to plug the sky card into (for legal decoding of the signal) and then a tuner card to accept the stream from the satellite dish.
