Thanks allot for your reply,
It's against sky terms and conditions, but i think they give one year of warranty with skybox all the hardware that they installed after that it has to be the user (me) to pay for any repairs or replacements, that in my way of seeing it makes me the owner of all hardware that they put into my house, so why do i have to keep using their skybox if i could use it in another way, it would make allot easier in matter a of space to have 2 skyboxes this, my idea was to put one box working and when everything works upgrade my subscription to have another card, then i could watch sky in diferent channels in different places without having more boxes in the house or carrying them up and down the stairs, just a dual head dvd-s card and two cams one for each card!!
Why there is no practical use of it? you would cut the sky box of the deal, you maybe would have card into the sky box once in a while but it would avoid downloading it's schedule all the time, and the signal would be allot better!because it would come straight of the satellite dish!
I haven't got any illegal intentions i just want to do all this so i would save space and i could have better quality that using the rf out an adaptor from the scart to the dvb card!!
All this hardware it's quite expensive and what i would like to know is if anyone would post a way of using the linux mce with the cam and to know if it works, because i couldn't find anyone with mythtv or linux mce working with it,or a link to do it!! and a dvd-s card name with CI expansion that works for linux mce!!
I know that some people doesn't like to speak about this, but linux was created around the concept of freedom of choice, and what sky is doing is wrong trying to make users to pay allot for a sky+ or a sky hd box when it's free to setup one,with a computer!! i think us costumer pay enough to be able choose for what suits us best!!
