    What's the minimum requirement for a PC to receive Sky analogue. Won't be
    connecting to net, just sole use for TV watching.

    Buy a TV tuner card for your pc (with tv input jacks).
    Subscribe to sky analogue and they will install you a sky-decoder for you.
    Use a cable to connect the sky decoder to the tv tuner card in your pc.
    Then, watch sky on your pc.

    Correct - I know about needing hVCplus and a TV tuner card. What I need to
    know is what is the minimum ram and processor and graphics card needed to
    receive and also play DVDs. What OS. Don't know anything about Linux but
    will that be ok?
