HI All,

As i seemed to be having so many problems with my current TV card (nova-t usb2) i wondered if there was a better card to have that was known to be fully compatible and the preverbiable POP to install?

If you're looking for just an Analog card, I'd suggest the Hauppauge PVR500 dual tuner card.

If you're looking for a digital card, unfortunately I can't make any suggestions! :)

    Hello!

    I have a LifeView Duo DVB-T PCI card and it is good. Unfortunately though I have never got the Analogue tuner to work with MP. Digital works great though. Would be very interested to find out how the previous poster got the analogue tuner to work and also if he has got the Composite/S-Video inputs to work as well??

    Generally there is no problems with MCE hardware/drivers as MCE is just XP home with the MCE application attached to it.

    Good. I am pleased that that is now working for you. :) If you have ever looked at MP debug log files, you may have noticed that apparent errors are not rare, but these are "errors" that do not affect the functioning of the product. (It is not desirable to have these errors in the log file, as it misleads users, testers, and...
