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.

You might want to look into a C Band and skip DirecTV all together

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 ...

Well I just wanted information on TV tuners and if they can even work for DirecTV. I'm planning on building HTPC.
