I was hoping for something that wouldn't involve a massive investment  
in new hardware. I've already checked out the lyng-sat website, and I  
saw some interesting things, but I'd rather not have to buy a  
satellite dish, a DVB-S card, stuff to move the satellite, install  
the satellite, and everything else.
