Don't forget Dual LNB - these are set up to point to Astra & Hotbird at
the same time, for even more channels you don't want to watch...
You get one cable from each LNB, so that means 2 cards, one dedicated to
each satellite, but independantly tunable, of course.
This is my 'later on' idea, once I get DVB-T domesticated.
