Well, Ive bitten the bullet and gonna have a crack at getting sky up and running thru the HTPC via a card reader (legally of course)
However, having a play with DVBLink and TV source and I just cannot get any channels in tvsource. I have the LNB settings correct, but signal strength and qualit are zilch. Same settings in MC and I can pick up all channels off D1. I have Server installed, rebooted, installed source, rebooted. Read the how to docs and how tos on about 5 different sites, and it should come up. But on Optus D1 - nothing. What have I missed?

Have you got the correct headend settings for your LNB (I had this same issue) I ended up with: Diseqc = None; LNB Type = KU-Linear (Universal); LOF1 = 10750000; LOF2 = 10750000; LOF SW = N/A; Provider = Optus D1 (160);
