The program do not detect my tv card. It is the card given by the Computer (Packard-Bell), and has the name of Packard Bell, but really is a model of Lifeview.

It is impossible to configure the TV section on Media Portal, in these conditions.

    Hi Pedro

    About lifeview DVB-T card should be fully supported have you got the latest driver and software from animation technologies download page http://www.lifeview.com.tw/html/downloads/internal_tv/flydvbt.htm just download and update and see if ok in that programme. but have lifeview dvb-t duo and have no problems with both 1.3 versions and 2RC1 + CVS
    only digital tv side supported in MP but can do so much more than in lifeview software, hope this helps

    Sorry to bring up an old thread.

    I have the LifeView Hybrid (FlyDVB-T Hybrid Cardbus) installed and working on my computer (i.e using external software i can't watch both digital and analogue tv, listen to the radio, etc).

    When using Media Portal the card is in fact detected however is labelled as :

    LifeView FlyDVB-T Hybrid Cardbus (Analogue)

    N.B Analogue and not Digital.

    Then when i proceed to scan for channels (which sometimes crashes at this point) i find nothing...even though it works in my external tv application...

    Does anyone know if it is possible to use this card fully in media portal? I have read about making graphs however not sure which filters i should be including...

    Thanks in advance.

    Infact i have found in CaptureCardDefinition.xml my card:

    However, it only ever detects as analogue?

    I have tried removing the analogue one from the xml but then i just get "no card detected"...

    Ok i'm sorry for my triple post but i got the card recognised under Media Portal (well in the config anyway).

    If you notice the rev of the digital one is d0 but analogue is f0...well...set the digital to f0 and it picks it up.

    I thought i had already checked that but obviously just missed it.

    Hope this helps someone else.
