    I Tried searching forum for how to "Split Sat TV Signal" but no luck ( at least for me)

    I live in the "BackBlocks" so Normal TV areil do'nt work.

    We do have Sky Sat TV.

    So will need to

    1) Split Feed from Dish ( Dick Smith have anything simple?) How to do it ?

    2) TV Card - I have an old PCI from DSE Purchased in 1999 so think I will need another

    3) Viewing software as talked about in above link.

    PC is
    2.66 Quad Core
    4 Gig Mem
    Readon 4870 Card
    2 X 320 dicks in Raid0

    Thanks.... May be a good Long weekend project !

    Are you talking about Freeview here? Cause you won't find a Sky decoder for your PC.

    Sweet.

    Hauppage make great tuners, make sure to get the right type (not one for DVB-T) I'm not so sure on the logistics of splitting the sat signal, should be the same as splitting coax? If you're running it a reasonable distance, you man need an amplifier of some kind.

    Heres a few links with some good info.
