Hi all, first time on line. I would be interested if anyone could reccommend a reasonable external DVB-S card to run with windows 7

[Moderator edit (MF): "DVB-S" is not meaningful enough, updated subject]

I have a couple of AverMedia Satellite Trinity cards in my HTPC at home. They do DVB-T, DVB-S and Analog TV signals. http://www.ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=375400 Seem to go pretty well and work with Media Center 7 and Freeview DVB-S. I haven't tried them with DVB-T as I don't get the signal yet but it looks like it should work I think?

actually the thought of getting channel 9 would be great. Not sure with an external DVB-S or S2 from New Zealand would mean it could be done. Channel 9 I understand can only be got from within australia?? any help on this one?
