Good morning all.

Can anyone help me with my quest to get good reception on my PC?

This is what I am trying to do.... TV in lounge with SKYBOX already has a splitter running to another TV can I run a 3 way splitter and a coax cable from lounge to PC?

Also what kind of Tuner card will I need for this? The one in the computer isn't the best so believe I will need to upgrade this to something better.

Basically want to know what the best and easiest way to do this is, any help would be much appreciated.

What exactly do you want to do? Watch the Sky output on a PC using the modulated RF output or do you want to split the cable from the satellite dish so you can get a DVB-S card and watch Freeview on the PC?

modulated RF output way I believe, I just want to split it at the SKYBOX end.

All I am after is good reception for TVNZ 3 and the one sky channel.
