You may need an RS-232 cable. Look in the manual and their website to make sure drivers are available.

The RS232 cable is only useful if you want to transfer settings, upgrade software etc. It cannot be used to watch digital satellite transmission on PC. The only way to do this is to buy a TV tuner card or a DVB PCI Card. (Which has built in digital receiver).

If you are planning to buy a DVB card, go for Technisat Skystar2. It has great support for plugins and its software upgrades and new plugins are easily and consistently available on the internet. Also be sure to buy the card without Common Interface support as you usually do not need it for DVB cards and it just costs more. The price in RWP will be in Rs.4000-4200 range.
