I have a DNTV dual USB tuner with a intel dual 2.8gig, i gig ram, NVIDIA 7600gt, MP 2.0.0.4, Intervision windvd7.

The driver I used = "NVTV single tuner PAL mediaportal working.rar" The other driver is newer but has the "gray screen" problem (dvxplore.sys). There is a topic covering that subject.

WebEPG.exe is on the process list when its running 2. TVguide-writing.xml is being written while its running, its renamed to...

The field bExternal only tells MP to use the IR-blaster. So a 0 here means no use of blaster and 1 means use blaster. So the first thing to get working is the changing of...

To get rid of this nuisance while keeping the pristine dvd codecs, simple open a command prompt window and do the following. cd \program files\intervideo\dvd6 regsvr32 /u mp4vdec.ax That...
