    That depends what you mean by "work".
    As it says in the first post: MediaPortal only supports receiving channels that are marked as "copy freely". Any channels that Charter has protected by marking as "copy once" will not be viewable or recordable. I'm not able to tell you which (if any) channels they would be because it varies from cable provider to cable provider and market to market.

    Is the patch still necessary with MP1 1.13.0.0?

    Should the patch still be applied to 1.16.0 Final?

    I noticed there are some things in the change log that address similar issues.

    Does this still work with version 1.17.0? I installed TV Server 1.17.0 on a Windows 7 x64 machine with a Ceton Infinitv 4 card and it will not recognize the Ceton card. It recognizes my other ATSC cards, but I can't get the Ceton to show up in the TV Server Configuration app. I am running the latest Ceton drivers, and everything is green in the Ceton Diagnostics tool. Any suggestions of things to try?

    Yes.

    Have you installed the patch from here?
    CableCARD tuner support for MediaPortal 1

    If not, you should!

    Also, try closing and reopening TV Server Configuration to refresh the list of tuners. (The list doesn't refresh any other way.)

    Yes, I installed the patch. I've also opened and closed the TV Server Configuration, restarted the service, and rebooted the PC many times. I also looked through the tvserver logs and there is no mention of the Ceton tuners or any error messages on startup.

    Until now I've been using Argus TV with an add-on for the Ceton card. So I know the card is functioning properly. However, Argus has not been updated in a long time and doesn't have a client plugin for the latest versions of MP, so I thought I'd try using the MP TV Server instead.

    I'm not sure what else to try. There is some discussion earlier in this thread about 64 bit not being supported - that's not still the case is it?

    1. All CableCARD tuners are network attached, even the PCIe versions. Therefore it's critical to make sure any security software you use - particularly firewalls - is configured to allow TV Server (tvservice.exe) and TV Server Configuration (setuptv.exe) to access your network/tuners.
    2. If (1) doesn't help, zip and attach the full log files for me to take a look.
    No, that's not applicable.
