    I have 2 Hauppauge Nova-S Plus in my HTPC. MP is recognizing both cards, all channels are assigned to both cards and the prority is set to 10 for card1 and 1 for card 2.
    But it's only possible to record with one. If the seconds cards starts recording it creates a file ~ 6kb and thats it.
    Channel switching while one card records is possible, but TV stays black.

    This behaviour is depending on whitch card is recording. Is card 1 recording and I switch tv-channel the recording continues but the tv stays black. Is card2 recording and I switch channels the recording stops immediately.

    1. Watching TV with card1, recording with card2 ->file ~ 6kb
    2. Watching and recording with card1 and changing channel -> recording continues, tv is black
    3. Watching TV with card2, recodring with card1 -> recording the show, but now live tv
    4. Watching and recording with card2 and changing channel -> recording stops, tv is black
    5. Scheduled recording card1 first, card2 second at the same time -> card1 is recording the show, card2 creates a file ~6kb
    6. Scheduled recording card2 first, card1 second at the same time -> no recording at all.

    This happens with MP 0.13 and with 0.2RC1

    There are no usefull entries in the logs. Considering the log everything works, but it doesn't.

    EDIT
    A) I wrote the image of XP back(with all Fixes but no drivers), installed the drivers for the 2 Nova and installed 0.2RC1. MP was only finding one Nova after the insallation. I had to add the other manual.
    B) Same again, but with 2 Nova and a Twinhan 1022 DVB-S. . After the installation of 0.2RC1, MP was finding the Twinhan and one Nova. I had to add the other Nova again manual.

    Could this be a problem with the Nova-S Plus drivers?



    PS: I've test both cards with MS MCE2005 on the same PC, same driver etc., only another HDD to exclude any tv card does not work proberly. But everything was working fine.

    Hi,

    i have found a big bug for multituner in LoadDefinitions() method. The method always did grab the wrong filters for my PVR 350. It took the filters of my PVR 150. Since the LoadDefinitions() method is also used for BDA devices it could be the same issue.

    I could provide a modified TVCapture.dll for testing.

    Hi,

    I grabbed the Sourcecode yesterday (11-25-2005) evening. So it could be a wise idea to take a CVS of that time to. ;)

    The changes seem to affect four files. I did put all this ZIP.

    Hopefully this works! It did solve my problems. :)

    Unfortunatly the Novas do not find any transponder with the new CVS versions. The channelscan is just passing through.
    There must be another bug in MP.

    I'll test it with a version from 11-07, which works for me

    It don't work with CVS 11-07. :(

    I've attached 2 screenshot from GraphEdit, one with CVS 11-07 and one with CVs 11-25. The problem is plain to see
