    Hi Bleazle

    As both things you having problems with are pci-e, I'd suspect power supply could be iffy, any chance of trying another one.

    Hello again Dave

    Hopefully you'll spot something in the logs....
    Please could you try changing your LNB settings to {10750, 10750, 12750} (ie. change the zero to 12750).
    If that doesn't help, please also try using the "DVBS" network provider (check "preferred network provider" -->here<--).

    @PD: I've got an old PSU that I might be able to use but after reading kiwijinglist's post above I installed TBSViewer (which came with the card) and tried scanning with that instead of MP - once again it found no channels but it showed that the signal was OK

    @mm: thanks for the suggestions. I changed the "0" to "12750" (which I had tried when I originally installed the card last week) and scanned - again no luck - then manually set the provider to DVBS as suggested and you guessed it, no luck. Updated logs are attached - I can't make sense of them but you might notice that some of the scans were cut short - this is because they were past the point where the Hauppauge card would have already picked up stacks of channels. I let the last scan run to 100% though.

    I'd really like to get this card working but I'm at the stage where I'm ready to bin it :mad: spending 6+hrs trying to get a TV tuner to work is fricken nuts. (plus the time you guys are putting into trying to help figure it out). Maybe I'll just have to get another Nova-S Plus....

    What do you reckon?

    If it's not even working with the software that comes with the card it might be faulty, if you unplug the aerial from the card does it still show that the signal is OK (I'm wondering if it shows ok signal regardless of whether it has a signal or not).

    ...it shows the same amount of signal as it did before (in MP TVServer no signal shows at all). Here's a screenshot of TBS scanning with no aerials plugged in - the signal level is the same as when they were plugged in..

    Seems to me like you may have a dud card.
    The only other thing I wonder about is how you're splitting the signal from the dish/LNB, but if you're using the same cable that the Nova S is able to work with then that is probably a pointless thought too...

    Yup you should also test with their software + use the same aerial plug that was working on the Nova S, but sounds like card is a dud.

    I can confirm that using the aerial that works with the Nova-S tuner yields no results with either the TBS software or MP TVServer. Bummer. The card is now un-installed and will be winging it's way back to the reseller this afternoon (they have already approved the return so no complaints there)

    Thanks again for the pointers.

    Hey team, just looking for a bit of help setting up Music views. Currently I have sort my music by "Shares" but this seems really slow to load (a minute or more). I have been using this view because I like the why it lists my music. This sorts by the folder names, i.e. Calvin Harris - 18 Months.
    I can not figure out how to sort using other views to give me this result. Basically I just want all my folders (each album) to display from A-Z by the folder name.

    Any pointers
