I want to get rid of Sky and build a HTPC. I plan on buying either the "Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-S-USB2" from Gamma Computers for $116 or a no-name "DVB-S USB Satellite TV receiver tuner box for PC" off trademe for $45, and then connecting this to the existing Sky satellite cable to get Freeview channels.
Does Sky use DVB-S or DVB-S2 and does this have any impact on compatibility with a DVB-S adapter?
Basically, will this work? Recommendations? Advice? I've only started looking into this tonight and the acronyms are getting to me.
