Default Skystar usb advice needed

Hi i'm looking to buy a skystar card for my pc aswell as a dreambox

just a couple of things I would like to know

- what is best skystar2 pci card or skystar usb -

ive been on the skystar site and can only see the skystar usb2 not just the usb version

the skystar usb is grey and the skystar usb2 is black

i'm hoping that the skystar usb is just the skystar2 pci card in usb version

also the skystar2 pci cards does it matter what revision they are when buying one is there a certain one to look for probabally stupid question to ask but you never know

cheers

I have the PCI version and since I installed it and got it up and running I haven't had a problem with it. Can't really comment on the usb version as I have never had one or used one. I don't know what the differences are between the revisions but I know there is one with a remote control and one without.
