That is not a DVB card, it only works with analog TV.

No slot because of analog....
You might want to ask for a good card for Kabel Deutschland on the
german forum http://de.mythtvtalk.com/forum/index.php or look in the
german wiki http://www.mythwiki.de/index.php

There might be some way of using the settop box and an IR blaster but
I have no further clue about that.

I wish I knew but I'm sure it is an old question. You can search this
list comfortably on

Have fun!
