  1. pci or pci-e (mini), low profile or standard height, do you need the complete kit including i/r receiver and remote.?
    is this for windows 7, 32 or 64-bit.?
  2. None. Today's TV Tuner cards will not work natively with satellite signals. The best set up you could probably get would be using a Hauppaiuge Colossus capture card in conjunction with your satellite set top box.

  3. You might want to look into a C Band and skip DirecTV all together
  4. There is a confederation of folks over the last 18-24 months who are developing a universal (read: DRM) standard for OTA ATSC, cable QAM, Internet TV, and whatever the satellite freq modulation is called.

    Not sure where DTV fits into this -- but I'm sure they do. Would there be a PCMCIA card slot in the back of your receiver? It may take a *smart card* from DTV that allows advanced functions, but Shirley it is highly proprietary to their stuff only ...
