Dual DVB-S Card

I've been having a poke around the forum and no one really seams to have got the blackgold BGT3540 working fully with sage.

BGT3540

So i'm a bit loathed to risk it, can anyone recommend a good dual DVB-S card working with WHS and sage.

Thanks

James

I have it working with Sage using the DVB Viewer network recorder.
I mainly use it for BBC-HD and just a few other FTA channels.
I only had one spare PCI-Express slot in my PC so this card worked well for me, but I dont think its supported by Sage as it did not seem to recognise the card.

I have not had any problems with it so far.

Over in AVForums there is a long thread detailling all the problems that people have had with this card.http://www.avforums.com/forums/graph...ta-mce-36.html

The best value tuner for what you want to do is the Pinnacle 7010ix. It has 2xDVB-T & 2xDVB-S tuners so you get Freeview & Freesat & it requires just one PCI-e slot. These were OEM only & seem to be difficult to find now but there is someone (not me:-) on Ebay selling some for 59.95 or Best Offer.

Well ive just ordered one of these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-Pinnacle-D...d=p3286.c0.m14

Fingers crossed it works.
My DVB-T card is a pinnacle so i'm hopeful.
Pinnacle or anyone else for that matter dont seam to have in stock the dual DVB-S cards so to get this with DVB-T is a real bonus.

Bugger, This card 'Pinnacle 7010ix' is PCI-e my sage box doesnt have one so cant use it.

I still cant find anywhere selling a dual sat PCI card, why have they stopped making them.
