As per my earlier postings I am setting up a PVR. Not sure which flavour as of ye but yesterday I went into Jaycars to buy a splitter from the satellite. The guy advised me that the signal from the satellite can NOT be split until after its been through the decoder.
This is because the decoder 'powers' the satellite. Is this really true??
Basically all I was going to do was to split the SKY signal and have 2 tv tuner cards in my PC. One to handle ANALOG Sky signal (this would be connected to an Hauppage 150 and come from the decoder). The other tvtuner card would be DVb-S (Hauppage 3000) and I would use this to capture digital Freeview stuff. This card would be connected to the splitter and bypass the SKy decoder all together.
From what the man at Jaycars has said, the above setup is not possible.. Can someone confirm?
