Unlike cable, you can't simply plug a satellite coax into a TV and expect to receive channels. With satellite, you need to go through a decoder box to receive your program package. I see this as a possible problem when connection to a PC with a Media Center tuner. Last time I attempted to connect sattelite to the Media Center tuner it had problems receiving the channels. The configuration I used was DISH FEED -> SATELLITE BOX -> PC. First thing Media Center does is scan all your channels. Problem is, with a satellite box you can only watch whatever channel the box is currently programmed to. This caused errors when Media Center was trying to do a complete scan of the channel lineup. Without Media Center, using a normal TV card, I would simply keep the TV software on channel 3 and use my satellite remote to change channels. It doesn't seem lkike you can do the same thing with Media Center. Any suggestions?
