    My uncle in spain uses his to watch sky tv on the balcony instead of sitting in the living room and he raves about it all the time, however I can't vouch for how it would work on a PDA.

    Yup I got one about a year back. Great for weatching sky+ in bed on my laptop or even better watching sky on my nokia mobile while waiting in bus queues or the doctors waiting room. Only problem is when I am trying to watch something and my kids come home from school and we fight over what to watch!
