Great to hear N!

Can you give me any recommendations on hardware, such as DVB-S card, dish style/type, CI/CAM support etc?

Anyone out there heard of an ATSC plugin for vdr?

  DVB-S works fine in North America -- no problems whatsoever.

  If you want digital cable, you will need to go with a card that uses ATSC.  I don't think VDR has a plugin working for it but I do know that MythTV does.  Of course, that would only work with unscambled ATSC digital signals -- which many cable companies provide for their regular subscription channels.

How do you explain the fact that there is a lot of hype from many North
American users, and sellers, of DVB-S standalone boxes that they can receive
more than a thousand of channels? I think you're missing out something
there...
