Could anyone please help with a step by step guide to add Prime TV to Windows 7 media center using a Sky dish? I set this PC up as with Vista nearly a year ago and then upgraded to Windows 7 RC and didn't note anything down other than adding links to my favourites. I am a bit scared I break everything as wife and kids would kill me lol!

Any help would be great

Cheers

Stuart

Are you using a DVB-S card or do you have a Sky set-top-box connected to the HTPC?

Oops, didn't realist that this was posted on the Freeview forum so you must be using a dvb-s card.

You will need to go to settings - tv - setup tv signal - scan satellite transponders - single transponder.
From there put in the transponder as 12456 and 22500 and horizontal for the other options.
That should pick up Prime as a new channel and put it at the end of your channel list.
