I would also be interested to know which DVB-S card(s) are considered 
"the best" as I've been having so much trouble trying to get my HVR3000 
to work reliably and I'm starting to get fed up with it!  Some days it 
works, some days it doesnt.  Szap / mplayer seem to work, but mythtv 
doesn't (but thats another thread - probably on another list ;-)  )
