    Hi,

    While some (including myself) have had success with ATi 92xx series graphics cards, I wouldn't recommend it. This card isn't DirectX9 compatible, only DirectX8.1. Look for at least a FX5200 from NVidia or at least a 9550 from ATi.

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    The GeForce MX 440 are older cards and also not DX9 compatible. If you have this card (or the Radeon you posted first) try them with mp. If you want to buy a card then the GeForce FX5200 with at least 128 MB is the low priced card with the best value. You will get a card for around 40$/€.

    A GF4mx is a DirectX7.1 card and the 92xx is a DirectX8 card so a 9250 is DEFINATELY better than the gf4mx.

    5200/6200s are ideal and do the job well.

    I am running an ASUS 9250TD 256 MB and it suits me fine. It was cheap, fanless and as I have no plans on playing games on my HTPC it does the job well.

    Well just tried that. Chose TV Channels and clicked "Clear". All channels cleared then did a rescan. What a shitshow! All channel number mappings a total mess: STV as Channel 1, W as Channel 18, BBC channels way down the list. Thanks for trying to help but this software, for me, is just a mess. Appreciate all the time you have...

    Good luck, I am really not too sure how well CAM and MP work together with any tuner. Just a thought would it not be cheaper to just buy another C1+ card then there would be no need to prioritise the tuners? BTW the TBS Deutschland website specifically states that C1+ cards are not supported but I think that is a local issue with the...

    I spoke too soon. Still doing it. Get only a featureless grey screen until I reboot the machine, then the DVD plays, so still faulty

    This may or may not be a pause, after all, this is a playlist, it can constantly change, I don’t very well understand the mechanism of working with playlists in online broadcasts. Well, here you need to look at what is happening in the Media Portal player. And find someone who understands how it works.
