Errr......Why £400 pounds?
A dish and LNB is about £40 tops, a second hand set probably £20.
If you have a South facing window you could place the dish inside the
property facing the 28.2e Sats - I've done this myself in the past
mounted on a chair.
As I stated above there's currently no DVB-T2 silicon on a card AFAIK.
