To use EyeTV to get FTA satellite in the US, you need the EyeTV program, a USB Free to Air satellite receiver, and a satellite dish with low noise amp. The USB receiver must be one that EyeTV recognizes. The one I use is the Terratec S7. My dish is a Winegard 10' model with LNAs for C-band and ku-band. Smaller dishes and other amps also work.

Use the EyeTV program to set up the receiver and search for channels. Lyngsat can to used to find the info for manual programming. If the dish is not moveable, the channels are limited to one satellite. Once channels are programmed into EyeTV, programs can be recorded, viewed, and saved. As an example AMC1 has PBSHD, DW (Germany in English), This, Me, Ion (12 ch), NET (3 ch), JusPunjabi, and Ant-1 (Greece). Live sports events and network feeds can also be found.

Getting a programming guide from EyeTV is almost impossible, but TitanTV has almost all of the channels listed and EyeTV can be programmed from within TitanTV.
