Can I echo this?  I would like to buy a DVB-S receiver, with CAM for Sky, 
preferably USB 2.0, but PCI/PCIe is also OK.  However, trawling the website 
and list for details of a 'good' device or device combination is not easy.  I 
appreciate that there is a large number of variables to consider, but 
assuming that people are prepared to recompile (bits of) the kernel, then it 
should be possible to formulate a list of known good devices?  If that is not 
possible, then can someone recommend me a DVB-S receiver, with a CAM that 
works with Sky?

Many thanks,
