Hi to all
I am really new to all this I really do need help let me try to explain what am trying to do and if its possible !
I would like to get free sat on my TV through my PC I would like to view hd and recored hd but what I really do need to be able to do is record one plus watch a different channel to is this possible.
I forgot to say I also need the same with non hd free sat.
thank you for your help.
You need a dual DVB-S tuner. If you want Channel 4 HD you will need DVB-S2, all the other SD and HD channels only use DVB-S (S2 is backward compatible).

Cool ok thank you for getting back to me that was my next question if I got DVB-S1 could I record and watch HD/SD If I am reading this right I can ?
Witch model would you think would work best for me?
Many thanks for your help.
If you have a DVB-S tuner you can watch and record BBC HD, BBC One HD, ITV1 HD (but not channel 4 HD) if you have WinTV v7 HD software.
Channel 4 HD will require a DVB-S2 tuner

Can anyone recommend a model number for me ?
You haven't told us:
If you have a desktop or a laptop
What type of connection: USB, PCI, PCI-E
Whether you need DVB-S2 (for C4HD) or just DVB-S
Do you need a remote control

is there anything in the pipeline for a duel turner ?
Not that I'm aware of. You'd need to purchase two boards.
2 x HVR-4400's would be pretty cool, you've have dual DVB-S2 AND dual DVB-T then. (4 tuners!)
