I have been reading and trying to under understand this but now I'm really lost and need some help here. I will list What I have and what I would like and wait to here from you folks.

I Have:
I pay for DishTV
I Have a Dish 500 w/ DPP Twin id# unknown came with me 322 setup
Windows 7 Running MediaPortal MC w/ OTA and running all 3 TV's from my severver...

What I want:
PCI or PCI-E Card with daul Tunners (watch & Record Same Time)
Do I need a PCI card with ConaxSat?
Dump the Dish TV box.
I would Like to Get FTA and maybe drop my provider
I was Told I could Get 110- 119 Channels? And if not with FTA What Channels Could I get?

you wont get dish channels without paying for them. as far as i know the only solution to get your dish channels with anything other than dish irds is to serve your card to the app with something like a dreambox. im not sure this can be discussed here.

Thanks, crackt

To be honest I don't really care about DishTV anymore... is there a place I can see what Channels I would get with FTA... Will I gain more over the Basic 2,4,5,9,11, 23, 29 and Ion that Im getting from OTA? What is the best satellite card today?



Got to love them noob's

A small DBS dish might be fun to play with and experiment, but only the strongest KU-band transponders will be received if a linear FSS LNBF is mounted in place of the existing circular DBS LNBFs. Check out the eBay link in the signature below for a great deal on a more appropriately sized 90cm/36" dishand LNBF, which will provide more entertainment and less frustration as you start the FTA hobby.
