Thanks Phil & Johan

I just spoke to Lakeside and that card is for the analog Foxtel service 
only and it does not look like anything is around that can handle the 
digital service. In the sales persons words "proably because Foxtel want 
to lock you into their own PVR...." - I suspect he is right. So it is 
back to recording the analog signal instead.
