I like DVB Dream for everyday watching.

But TSReader with VLC is my "Swiss Army Knife" of FTA

I use DVB Dream and Mytheatre, DVB viewer seems popular I must give it a try.

DVB Dream
Pros Low CPU use (even with same codecs as MT), better picture quality, seems to be best HD option
Cons random crashes, poor positioner interface but it does work,

MyTheatre
Pros Easy satellite list and positioner interface, other programs work well with it to set up program guides and recordings, fairly stable, reliable recording function that get be set to wake up and hibernate PC easily.
Cons Its not free, hard to get some video codecs to work with it, highest CPU usage of all the DVB programs I've tried. Subject to occasional major crashes you better hope you have backed up all data files when this happens.

With both programs I try to periodically back up the complete program folder when everything is working well, it can be a big time saver.
