MP1 MP2 TvTonic DE
Wow this program is quite interesting, I think everyone should check it out... It allows you to subscribe to a channel, then in the background it downloads the shows. Also has a plugin for Media Center.

TVHeadend is superb! I really like the build in Code Word Client. I tested it long time ago and was impressed but still PVR in XBMC is crap compared to MePo, imho ;)

Could be a codec issue.. Ever considered to install Vista? It solved many of my video problems. If you have installed Mediaportal, and leave the codecs MPV and Descaler checked, I am pretty sure Dscaler is messing up your sound!.. Unregister Descaler, and you are done, because then the proper audio codecs are used.. I had the same...

No need to replace your remote. I think you better specify what kind/type of TV-card you want. (My guess is ATSC. Since I am not NA I can not make a recommendation if this is the case).

But thanks anyway for your help, and...

Easiest solution is to get a PMP (e.g. Archos or Cowon) and use that. they are small, let you watch films on the go, or let you hook up to a TV for a bigger screen. If you want a MediaPortal experience from something portable then you will need a laptop ;)
