    To begin with i got "no signal" when scanning on the HD transponders from 1.0°W, but signal/Quality is about 95%, I then tryed with "FireDTV Viewer" All HD channesl work perfect sound and pictures.

    This is the channels with no signal:
    Thor 2/3, Intelsat 10-02 (1 W)

    Then i made some changes to the Transponders files:
    added this line:
    <satellite name="1.0°W HDTV Channels" url="" />

    Made a new HDTV file for this channels called:
    >1.0°W HDTV Channels.ini<

    With this data found on
    2=1�V HDTV Channels


    Now i have all 9 Canal Digital HD channels.
    But when i use Preview on TVE3 or mediaportal, i only get black screen, but i cant find any error in the logfiles!?
    It seemse like the FireDTV card never change from S decoding to S2 decoding?

    Anyone have a solution, or simulare issue?

    I have found the solution.....

    It was a H.264 codec error.... I upgraded to PowerDVD 7 Ultra, and use this H.264 decoder, and now it works just fine, but the CPU is at 100%.

    before I use the fddshow H.264 codec, and this one dosen't work, with the Canal Digital HD channels, from Thor 2/3, Intelsat 10-02 (1 W)

    But this is how i got, the Danish/Swedish/Norweegen HD channels to work, from Canal Digital.

    Canal+ MovieHD
    Canal+ Sport HD
    Discovery HD
    National Geograpich HD
    History Channel HD
    Silver HD
    Voom HD
    (TV4 HD)
    (SVT HD)

    To you guys making MediaPortal :D Keep up the good work......
