I'll confess I didn't know much about European TV standards until I listened to Ian Dixon interview Rathe Hollingum from our Ireland developer team. According to that show, there are no DVB-S or DVB-S2 tuner cards which record directly from those sources available today. What you *can* do today (which Rathe points out) is to use a DVB-S(2) set top box and infrared control cable. For more information check out http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/mediacenter/tvandmovies.mspx and http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/using/setup/settop.mspx. There is a lot of good information in the podcast above about support of European TV standards -- give a listen if you are interested in this space.
P.S. Congrats to Ian on 100 shows -- you ROCK!!!
