After having a lot of issues with a Samsung freesat box I bought (rebooting, sometimes not recording stuff) I've thought about building a small media centre PC (running either Windows or Linux) to do the job instead.
I'm trying to find a PCI card that I could use with a satellite dish pointed at Astra/Eurobird to receive the standard freesat stuff and would also like recommendations on any software that would provide the EPG/DVR functionality.
