    I need advice

    I am looking for a free-to-air card for a computer. PCI is prefered, but x16 would be okay too. What brands are good? What do I need to look for? What should I avoid? Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. :) I will be using old DirecTV dishes with no motors. Just manual switching...
