Hi,

I am looking to cancel our Sky contract and switch to FreeAirSat services ie. Just keep the Sky card but no contract.

Have been looking around to find out the best DVB-S card to get, which will also allow a CI too be connected aswell.

The Technotrend S-2300 looks pretty good as a full featured card, and has a optional CI which will take two CAMs.  This would allow me to have a Setanta subscription for the Rugby etc.

I intend to build a MythTV server with possibly two of these cards and split the LNB feed so that I can record and watch different channels at the same time.

Will this card work okay with the 2.6 drivers and does my approach sound reasonable ?

Regards,
