    TV recordings short / failing

    Thank you for your help. I will try 8x recordings at the same time and see what happens. I will talk to the kodi guys about the 'Kodi not responding issue'. Once that's solved I need to get this dish motor back up and running to try out the signal lock work around!

    DVB S/S2 cards on legacy PCI interface.

    At the moment I've got hotbird 13e and Astra 19.2 stored. I have a second fixed satellite dish at Astra 28.2 (which obviously works fine). I've tried DVBViewer which has an option to 're-scan on failed tuning'. It works ok. I setup a meter on my motorised dish and you can hear the pulse...

    motorised dish setup advice / help

    Thank so for the info. I've been playing around with this most of today to try and get things to work with no luck. Basically what you mention above is correct in that the tuner locks to quickly whilst the dish is moving, ending up with a 'no signal' message when trying to preview a channel...

    Fast forwarding tv

    Already done that. The local tv with tv server and mediaportal front end installed on my lounge tv does kind of work ok. It's quick (as I'd expect). But why would .avi files fast forward on my client ok and .ts files struggle? They are of similar size... If anything some of the .avi files are...

    Fast forwarding tv

    Say I fast forward at x4, all my movies at tv series on both my tv server and client fast forward with no problems, the video is just 4x faster. If I try the same with recorded tv instead of a 4x faster playback it's just very stuttery and blocky. I was spending a lot of time researching faster...

    TBS6985 tuner card

    The TBS cards (in my opinion) are awesome. Reliable, find all channels, solid drivers, good support from TBS...etc. Just install the TBS card, install the driver then load MP Tv server and you should see 4 dvbs2 tuners in the tv server settings. TBS cards are well worth the money. Really...

    [solved] Newbie user, new card (tbs6985) and first integration with MediaPortal

    EPG collector is good piece of software. Mine runs every morning at 3am and collects freeview, astra 28.2 and hotbird 13e data. Loads it into mediaportal a treat. Those tbs cards are fking good. I use a 6985 and it's solid. Recommend all of the tbs stuff!

    Hi everyone - long time WMC user here ready to change :)

    If you want customisation then mediaportal is the solution. It has soo much more menus and features over mce. I was a dedicated mce user until I got annoyed with unreliable hacks to get mce running how I wanted. That's why I switched to mediaportal. Be prepared to do a bit if learning...but is...
