TV Tuner card advice

I would like to purchase a TV tuner card for my PC. We live in area that as a weak signal from a sub transmitter so no channel 5 from the normal aerial.
We also have an old satellite dish and skybox that we use to receive Germen channels ie ARD, ZDF extra.
I would like to get a card that could receive from both means and if possible be able to receive the new sky digital if we decide to up grade.
Can some one recommend a good card.
Thanks

So, if you have weak signal, the best bet is satellite, but you may need to re-direct dish's direction to get Sky Digital signal. As for digital satellitte TV card, you can try Avermedia's DVB-S card click here

I use a HauppageWin TV and I have it connected through my sky box and vcr. Picks up all the German Channells you mention
