Wow, any info on Satellite receiver cards for PC

Hey, my dads was moaning the other week that his satellite receiver broke and that he was gonna get one for something stupid like 150 quid, so as being nice son of his i thought i would get him a present and save the hassle of thinking what to get for his bd. Anyway, so he has got pretty old (Athlon 900Mhz, 512Mbz ram, 60gb hdd, win XP) pc in his room so i thought i could get him a satellite card, but have no experience with them what so ever, and would ask you if any of you use one, could recommend one, or maybe send me to the right direction where i would find some valuable info.

Cheers

Quick speeds downloading, but extremely slow upload speeds iirc.

This is from what I can remember when I researched it a few years ago, so quick may not be quick at all compared to modern BB

Cheers for a quick response. The thing is he wants it for watching/recording TV and stuff not really internet use, since he already has broadband
