USB Satellite TV on Boot Camp?

Hi there,

I bought a device that lets me record and watch Satellite TV on my computer. The downside is that it doesnt work on OS X but works on Windows XP, 7 ...

This is the product http://www.technisat.com/indexf461.html?nav=Sat_DVB_S_,en,1294131238891-228 It's Called TechniSat SkyStar USB 2 HD CI

I was wondering if I install windows 7 with boot camp if it will work with my MacBook Pro

also I wanted to Install ProgDVB to work with it, is it compatible as well

Thank you hope to hear back from you

sure it should work like on any other pc running windows xp ,vista or 7
the only difference between a Mac and any other pc like a dell for example is the Mac has open firmware while the pc has a bios other then that they are identical , so once windows is installed and booting you got a native pc , and therefore all peripherals that are compatible with windows will work, just like on a pc that meets the minimum requirements of that peripherals
