The most useful bits for testing signals are the strength/lock indications and the various error counts. I believe it works for DVB, know it doesn't work for analog. You can...

Dear all, I have bought the Philips plasma but do have problems setting best resolution etc. It seem only to copy with 1024x768, 720p seem not to be displayed at all.. In addition the pixel are not adressed 1:1, so there is always some scaling. I thought that the best way would be 1:1, but obviously the plasma does not think...

The only tagger which works more or less by itself in my knowledge is the Picard tagger by musicbrainz.org (still in heavy beta, yet quite usable.) It scans your files, autotags files with a (useradjustable) overlap with known files and gives suggestions for other files.

Your TV card & provider use DVB-T. In that protocol several channels are combined in one transponder (aka. 1 frequency). So if you are watching a channel from that transponder, MP can stream (record, transcode, whatever) all the other channels on the same transponder at the same time. That is one of the REALLY BIG FEATURES MP has and...
