I would be happy to get the BBC Channels with the now and next 
information for just now.

Speaking of the Dragon Cam,I have one setup in my Samsung DSR9500 
receiver with a full Sky card and it works fine.
If i could get a Sat card for my myth box that the cam would plug into i 
would be even happier.
Even better would be a card with two tuners that could share the cam - 
same as the Sky Plus box.

Which sat card would you recommend for a Dragon Cam?
