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.

    Unfortunately unless i stick another aerial on the roof the house is upto its limit on signal, but looks like support for analogue now added with manual tune only in setup (country not available). PS new lifeview driver available jan 2006

    :(. I have never used satellite TV, and I regret that I do not know what the problem might be. TV Server scans only those frequencies that are defined in the tuning-parameters file for the satellite that you are scanning, so it is possible that the missing channels have moved to a new frequency that is not contained in the...

    that is absolutely not my impression, I think I reboot my htpc max a couple of times a year, usually (wild guess) when directx derails (symptoms are: frozen image, or sound only at video playback) Mind you, it's MP client only, no tvservice, and mp shutdown before sleep (and ofcourse start again at wake) Edit: leaving MP running...
