Some advise please

Hi all

I am not to sure if this is the correct place to ask the following questions, if not I apologise and perhaps you could point me to the right direction

Ok, So I am planing to build a media pc running XBMC, this will be my first media build so I am trying to compile as much information together before I go out a buy all the bits.

I would like to install this card "TBS DVB-S2 High Definition Digital Satellite Tuner PCI Card HD (DVB-S2/DVB-S) Receiver - PCI" so I can receive Free sat here in the UK ( I already have a working dish out side) My questions are, does XBMC support this feature and what are your expert opinions of the below spec.

Any advise and info will be greatly appreciated.

CPU: AMD A4-5300 3.4Ghz
Motherboard: ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+
RAM: Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3-1600 Memory
HDD: Western Digital WD Green 2TB
Case: MI-008 Mini-ITX
DRIVE: LG Blu-Ray and DVD Drive,
Free sat Card: TBS DVB-S2 High Definition Digital Satellite Tuner PCI

Thanks loads

I am looking at similar things, also for a first proper HTPC built, and suspect this page can help you a bit furter:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=PVR
It describes how to configure XBMC for use with TV tuner cards. It basically requires a back-end software (and several alternatives are listed), which allows a plugin in XBMC to use the tuner card.
