Hi, been using Medialportal for a while, mainly to play files etc. I previously used WMC to record on, which worked ok but in wondows 7 when I used Mediaportal and WMC Mediaportal just went pure sluggish after using WMC. So, tried setting up the TV Server to tune into my TV cards using Mediaportal. Installed TV Server and cards are listed in the Server config. However when I scan to find channels absolutely nothing is found . . . getting ready to throw the PC oot the window. Help please. . .

Nova DVB-T 500 / Pinnacle 7010ix DVB-T/DVB-S
Running Vista x64

Sorry don't know how to get a log thing . .

    Are you still using windows 7, because the T500 definitely did not work with it.

    Ok so Vista 64, as far as I know there should be no issues, just make sure you ran the installer a administrator.

    no signal

    Hi

    I have the same problem, Vista 32bit, Nova T-500 both cards listed in config, got a Win tv-ci with viaccess cam.
    All works fine in Hauppage Wintv6, caded channels and free.
    When I scan in Mediaportal it only says "no signal" and dont find any channels.
    Looked att the instruction videos but that gave nothing, searched the forum and found this.

    What am I doing wrong?

    For some reason suddenly started finding channels during scan for DVB-T, still not getting anywhere in finding any DVB-S channels thou :-(

    Aye, back to vista x64 now.

    Thanks again for any help . . .

    I have the Pinnacle 7010ix and it will not work with Vista 64, if you have 4GB or greater of memory. Regardless of which of the three different drivers that are available it simply will not work. Even if you manage to get it to find channels then the viewing of them will be interrupted with stutters and the like.

    I never bothered to take any of my installed memory out to try it with less.

    The TBS 6281 DVB T/T2 is a dual tuner without CAM capability it should work on both DVBT and DVBT2 as it seems it did in WMC according to the OP. I do not see why it should not work with MP, I am using its successor the TBS 6281-SE which works well with both MP1 and MP2 but I only have OTA DVBT2, no DVBT any more. Which version of MP...

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...

    I think that the convention is for the final release to be around 4 weeks after the pre-release, but this timetable is not rigid, so the final release might be earlier or later. If you still have your MP 1.27f (or older) installation available, you perhaps should continue using that until MP 1.28f is released. -- from CyberSimian in...

    I really wanted MP to work but I downloaded NextPVR and HDhomerun. HDhomerun picked up all my channels right away and I can watch them there. I don't have NextPVR working yet so I don't get any TV guide or able to record. But it's closer than I've been before. I don't understand why HDhomerun can pick up my channels and MP picks them...
