Im new to this kind of stuff so any help would be appreciated.

What im trying to do is use our current satellite to get freeview on my pc.

What kind of PCI card would i need or you guys recommend?

I am already getting Optus B3. Do i need another LNB to get freeview if i wish to still use Optus B3?

What kind of setup would you guys recommend?

Thanks Guys

you could try the blog entry i put together here on geekzone for mediaportal (free) and the hauppuge nova-s: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/Regs/3769

there is also the guide for mediaportal tv server from mcraenz here: http://mcraenz.googlepages.com/ 

the key piece of information you will likely need is whether you have a 11300 or 10750 frequency LNB.  If one value doesnt work - try the other :)
