Hmm.... I don't have a Sky subscription (I used to but cancelled it when
it got extortionate) so didn't think about the card but now that I *do*
think about it the card is needed for free-to-view channels (CH4 +
Five?) Hmm, I don't really watch those but I don't want to rule them
out! I presume you can't view FTV channels with a DVB-S card?
