I'm thinking of going for the Skystar 2 sat tv tuner its on Amazon and looks like a good deal, but it doesn't say what version it is, the card on amazon has two coax connections click here but the same card on the Technisat web site only has one connection click here
can you guys help me out here, I'd like to get the newer version if I can.
Thanks for that, I don't think my system could handle HD, if it could I would go for it, My mobo is a Asus M2V-MX on board graphics and sound 2GB ram, winxp, I've been told you need a top graphics card, I think my cpu could handle it (Athlon dual core)the card I'm after is the skystar 2 DVB-S I'm googleing trying to get the best deal I can

Your graphics card will, along with your monitor, more than likely out perform any high definition TV transmission's resolution. The CPU won't even need to draw breath.
Even my modest ATi Radeon 9550, first launched about six or seven years ago, is capable of up to 3200x1200 resolution; it's set at 1152x864 for my 21in CRT monitor and Freeview text (such as newspaper front pages displayed on Sky News's Press Preview) can be clearly read.
