Hi All.

I am configuring a new PC for my Brother, and want to add a DVB-S tuner card with MCE IR remote control that integrates well with Vista home premium media centre.

My Brother is on a budget, so what do you recommend to do freeview satellite with MCE IR remote. I would prefer if the IR reciever mounted in the PC somehow? Also prefer Diseq 1.3 (USALS) support if possible

I read in another forum that MCE doesn't support DVBS without registry hacks or fooling it into thinking that the card is DVB-T. Is this still the case? can someone post a link to a step by step guide for this? 

I have been happy with an analogue Hauppauge PVR250 in my PC, but it doesn't appear that the Hauppauge DVB-S cards come with a full MCE remote.

Compaq Presario SR5440 AMD A64X2 5200+ processor. 

Free PCI and PCI express slots.

Regards,

Allen.
