Hey lads,

So well my username is kimjansen and it's not easy to guess what my real name is...

Anyway I'm a complete newbie to card-sharing, however I've got some professional experience with exotic satellite reception and broadcasting stuff. Furthermore I'm a MSc student in Computer Engineering so quite experienced with hardware/software and programming and that sort of shizzle (C primarily), ah well you get the point: nerd.

Why am I on this forum?
1.) I am building an Vista HTPC and would like to view DVB-S(2) channels on it --> Finding out what card has best image quality and support.
2.) Of course if possible I want to share with/from someone --> Find out what tools to use in order to display HD content and what tools get keys from peers.

But mainly because it is educational, I like to be up-to-date with this stuff just because it is fun material :).

I Have been browsing this forum for a while now, but to me the complete system and used terminology is not yet totally clear. There is much information to be found, but it's very fragmented.

So anyone there that can give me a small introduction to both points ;)? I Like to document what I've done (if everything is possible) so that is something I am able to share with the others looking for similar solutions.

Cheers, Kim

Hey, thanks for the nice words on my intro ;). From what I've read on this board I guess that I'll at least be an active reader and hopefully I can contribute a bit... But for now: much to learn :).

Well I ordered myself some new HTPC stuff today and a Teratec Cinergy S2 PCI HD, think that should be a nice DVB-S2 HD receiver.

HTPC Setup:
Intel P43 mainboard
Intel E8400
Nvidia GeForce 9600GT
4GB of RAM
The whole bunch passively cooled. nPVR to and SD/HD content from a 7TB RAID5 array on my central server.

So that should be enough to decode and watch HD content: trying to figure out whether it is feasible to have two Cinergy-cards in there for recording or that I better use a SD receiver.
