    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,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
