Thank you for the detailed analysis of the situation.

Looks like I'll get a Hauppauge Nova-S-Plus for the moment and just use 
it to receive TVRi with the MythTV system I'm building - there's nothing 
else I'm watching via satellite and don't really plan to expand the 
number of channels I'm viewing. I don't watch live TV at all, just put a 
few things on MythTV to watch whenever.

If the Nova-S-Plus can also receive some of the radio stations on Galaxy 
25, then so much better. If not, no big deal.

If and when HD stuff that's interesting to me becomes available, I'll 
probably look at a DVB-S2 card. Until then, the Linux and MythTV support 
for S2 will no doubt improve.
