Hi There,

Last time I checked the omnikey 3121 was the easiest way to setup sky on a HTPC.
Is this still the case? Are there newer omnikey models that would be better to use?

Cheers

I suppose I can't really answer this question, but I use the Omnikey 1021 which was much cheaper than than the 3021 when I was looking 2 years ago, and it has been working perfectly.

I use OscamLauncher to install Oscam as a service which I found on this site http://tekreaders.com/blog/oscam/oscam-windows.  Did you reinvent the wheel?

Don't know, maybe? It was 4 years ago when I wrote it. I think I would have done the obligatory google internet search before I started cutting code but who knows. I don't know when the above was released.  Oh also I note it's cygwyn which for some reason I don't like. 

*EDIT* Scratch that, it's oscam itself that is cygwin. oh well, there you go.
