Finaly incorporating DVR functionality into my HTPC/Mediaportal. Any suggestionson which cards or systems to buy? I figure I would go the IR Blaster route and keep the cable box, but anybody suggest going the analog basic cable/OTA HD route? Thanks!

I hate the folders layout, especially since theres no way of telling if its just one show or several, pressing play on the folder does nothing and your wife gets frustrated.

Hello, When using a 1920x1080 TV, the font used for Text TV is looking really small (and weird). Is it possible to change it? Does anyone know how this is handled? Kind regards, Tobias

I don't understand why I can't see which channels will be recorded in the scheduler / timer?!? Only when I go in settings I can see the correct channel. So the only thing I see is the name of the program that will be recorded. Why is that?

My LCD-TV doesn't have a 720 line mode, so I'm not sure if forcing 720p50 is a good idea. Since I had only installed the driver, I took advantage of the situation by installing the complete Catalyst suite 8.9. I have also updated to MP 1.0 RC3. I am starting as close to the default settings and only changing them step by step. So...

Embarrassing Thanks alot, it's a bit embarrassing taht i didn't find those plugins, eventhough i have been browsing the plugin section. Ill will try them out and see if it works for me. It could be nice though if´SleepTimer And Start in (Music/TV) was implemented in the core of MP. Thanks again!

This is exactly what the digital Sky Satellite PACE boxes do. If you've "booked" a programme on a channel at a certain time, you will get a notification 5 minutes before said programme starts if you are on a different channel. You can choose to switch to the booked channel at that point, you can snooze the notification or you can...

MP1 MP2 PVR basics DE
Hi ocnos MediaPortal/Configuration/Plugins/PowerScheduler - MediaPortal Wiki Documentation is the best place to look, remember for this to work, you need mediaportal running (unless using TVServer, which as you have posted in the TVE2 forum unlikely) and left in home screen idle.

Iirc, the crop settings are tuner-specific. With that in mind, it should be possible to use multiple tuners to handle the SD / HD channels. With a tuner dedicated to the HD channels, it should be possible to crop those independently of the SD channels. Keep in mind that the ABC HD feed is only 720 though. Hopefully someone with...

Hey, I have an NTSC television in Europe. I'd like to hook up a SKY sat box (PAL) into my HTPC running media portal. I'm using a NTSC PVR-150 card, but I'm told that the RCA inputs should handle PAL (need SCART to RCS/phono adapter) and that only the RF input hits the NTSC tuner. The NTSC TV is hooked up via my AGP graphics card...

MP1 MP2 Leadtek wintv 1000S DE
I think there's a list of the specs of both cards on the leadtek site. From what I remember, there werent any massively significant differences. I use the S, and have no real problems with it.
