Hi Guys

Just a quick question following on from phils posts. I have also been
looking into this to recieve UK Satellite directly over the air into my
myth setup without iusing an external set top box. I have also come
across mention of the possibility of using a DVB-S card with cislot and
a Dragon Cam which I believe will allow me to use a Legal subscriber
smartcard to decrypt the channels.

Can someone confrim that this is the correct way to do this and if
anyone has actually got it working in practice.
