    Why not try DSTV PAS10 68.5E

    If Evolution works, why so many idiots?

    if you want to download via torrent, there are things you have to make do.

    make sure you are using ports higher than 50000 since most ports lower than that, especially the default ports for torrent clients are being monitored by your ISP and blocked accordingly.

    make sure you configure your router to forward the ports to your machine. if your router has upnp enabled and your torrent client supports unpn plugins (like azureus) it should not be a problem.

    make sure you download the torrent with most number of seeders.

    make sure that after you download the file, you keep on seeding it after the ratio of your seed is more than 1 point, meaning you have uploaded the same amount or more of filesize back to the torrent swarm, otherwise, your IP will be blocked by the tracker and you cannot download next time.

    i have ditched bittorent client a long time ago, even the new version of opera9 has bittorent embedded. i don't like utorrent also, has more memory footprint compared to azureus even if it is considered as the "light" torrent client.

    mate the best 'tv shows' channel on hotbird is SF2 and TSR1 from the srg package (viewable with dvb pci cards like ss2). On them you can see the following (and more) in original english:
    the simpsons, greys anatomy, dr.house, 2.5 men, scrubs, lost, desp. housewives, rescue me, monk, CSI las vegas, CSI miami, etc
