Hi All,

I am looking at using a Raspberry Pi to watch Freeview Saterlite. Has anyone got any recommended DVB-S2 sticks that they have used that work well in NZ, or any that they have use that they recommend to avoid.

At the moment I am looking at getting a Sundtek Sky Ultimate 5, which seems to fit the bill but just wondering what others think.

Thanks

Looks like a reasonable option based on http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Sundtek

Where are you looking at picking one up from?

Might have a look at that one, $40 USD is much cheaper than 85 euros.

And I was looking at ordering it directly from Sundtek.
