    DVB-S card Software vs Hardware decoders

    What benefits would one have using a hardware decoder card vs a software decoder.?
    Anyone with hands on experience?

    all dvb-s is digital so need to hardware decode the computer just saves as is
    hardware decoding is for analog signal that has to be changed into a digital file ie the video input

    so just get the budget one unless you want to capture from set top box or a old video camera
