  1. I build myself a New HTPC, and Iím looking to buy a good multiple satellite tv tuner with PCIe card, my dish is install with two lnb. My OS is Windows 10, so it got to be compatible, I check a couple of them, like Hauppauge, but seem to be hard to decide, since of them are not compatible yet with Win10.

    I sure hope you intend on getting a motor if you are looking at ku band or c band, ka is not doable (rare cases dish and direct are in the clear) in sat dvbs2. even as far as that goes ku has relatively little to get now days either barring a wild feed of a tv show here and there. tbs offers supposed win 10 drivers, I would suggest a stb and a capture card (or even a dvb) since a tuner card will have trouble running a motor without an external power source such as an old stb with updated DISEQC commands for ku and a converter for c band or a separate c band old receiver with updated sat positions.

  3. Thank you for your reply

    I donít need a motor, cause I will aim my dish to only one ku sat, I already on a Stb with provider, but would like to use my htpc, since I would have everything in the same box, watch tv, browse internet, etc.

    hum, which provider may I ask? and which sat? ku needs at least a 3 ft (optimal) dish to get all transponders. also which fta receiver you using?

  6. Sat 82&91, you can use either Sonicview hd8000, dreamliink t5, and there a couple other. For provider, I think we not suppose to talk about does thing in here, sorry, I think itís part of the rules!

    ok, just to let you know those are ka sats, they are for bev (bell express view) and no longer have a footprint for the usa, they also have 9 degrees of separation and are "small dish" usable, they also use nagravision encryption. I sent you a private message

  8. Ok, thanks to remind me about ku and ka differences. I am from Canada, so a small dish is ok, since with a fta receiver and a iks provider we can get sat 82&91 no problem, I thought putting a multi tv tuner PCIe card in my htpc and inputting my iks provider info I could get tv like on fta receiver.
