Yesterday I was asked a question about DVB cards, "Are there different 
cards needed for PAL and NTSC?", my friend wanted to know if he bought a 
PC with a DVB card in the UK (PAL-I), whether the card would work in the 
USA (NTSC).
I told him a different tuner is needed. Am I correct or is it dependent 
on  the manufacturer? What about DVB-S cards, would they be dependent on 
the transponder frequencies of available satellites?
Suggested cards and any pertinent info.
Thanks and Regards
Sid.
