Cheers and Thanks.
mej2002sep: Thanks to both 1gkar and Dingbatt. Dingbatt I was told that I would need a decoder box such as Sky or FTA DVB-S to get the hvr 3000 to work. What I am reading from you is that I can plug directly from the dish into the pc card bypassing my sky box. I have the cables in place to do this. Your confirmation of this a) will be greatly appreciated and b) shows how far I am behind in all this stuff. Thanks for your inteest.
