I'd like to add a card or external receiver to my PC (Dell, Pentium III, Windows XP, 600 Mhz, 384 MB RAM, 51 GB of Hard Drive free space, 32 MB graphics card and USB 2.0) to watch digital 4:2:2 feeds, but I certainly don't want to spend $700 on the Quali-TV QS1080IR Receiver. Have heard good things about the DVB World USB FTA Receiver and also the Twinhan 102G DVB PCI Card (actually, looks like the minimum system requirement for the Twinhan is a PC with 600 Mhz, which I just barely have). Also, is there any special/required third party software that's needed to run along with the above choices or any other brand or is everything already included inside the box in which the product is shipped? The last thing I want to do is install one of these receivers/cards and have to put other applications on my desktop to get it to work. And the only other thing I'd have to do to complete the installation is run some RG6 from the Loop Out on my Fortec Mercury II Receiver into one of these products? Thanks for your help!
