I have the below listed system. I have read all the threads I found on the theater 500 card and still cant get mine to work. I was able to view TV in beyondTV so I know that card and drivers work.

The MP Setup finds the card as ATI ELITE (same card really) and it is a H/W/ card. I verified the device-ID in the capture card config file is the same as GRAPHEDIT shows. When I scan the channels it finds all the right channels but there is no preview window to the left of the channel list (there was when I first tried MP w/ the 9800AIW)/. When I run MP and go into TV, it auto starts TV-on with TIMESHIFT-on but with a black TV screen. after about 15seconds each of these options will turn off (the red dot's switch off). If I select "record" while the dots are on, it will continue to record with the red dots on until I manually turn record off. then the red dots will go off also.

after a trial recording, this was the file created so at least recording appears to work. This does actually play in Windows Media Center (tho I would much prefer to NOT record to dvr-ms format):

    What Video decoder do you have selected for Television, and do you have ffdshow post-processing enabled?

    Have you tried different video decoders? Which ones?

    I managed to get it to work. My current settings (Nvidia Video Decoder, VMR9) work good but not yet "perfect". picture is very good but still a little "soft"

    Following are the video codecs I have available. The SNAPSTREAM cause a green TV screen, the Cyberlink show a black screen, and the ATI ones stutter. The NVIDIA seems to work best for me

    - Nvidia Video Decoder
    - Dscaler Mpeg2
    - Snapstream Video/SP
    - Snapstream MPEG-2
    - Snapstream MPEGMuxer DMO
    - Cyberlink Video/SP
    - Cyberlink Decoder ATI
    - Cyberlink MPEG Muxer
    - ATI MPEG Multiplexer
    - ATI CC Multiplexer
    - Sonic MPEG Video Decoder

    Is there perhaps a better choice to use (tho choice may be a bit subjective), or maybe a different codec to possibly install and use, for a better/clearer picture?

    Also any way to change the recording format (to mpg rather than dvr-ms) or the options used for the recording?

    Glad to hear it... :)

    I am not sure what you mean by "soft". My preference is the nVIDIA - while it is use, you will see an nVIDIA icon in the System Tray. Open that up and you can tweek the brightness and contrast. You probably need to reduce the brightness (to get a good black) and then increase the contrast to set the whites correctly. Unfortunately, these controls don't work "in real time" - so you have to make a change and then start MP again to see the effect of the changes....

    No, you cannot change the recording format. It is very easy to convert a dvr-ms file to mpg - I use DVRMStoolbox - it takes about 5 minutes to convert a 60 minute recording.

    as mentioned I do have nVIDIA Video Decoder selected, but when watching TV I dont have a nVIDIA icon in the system tray.

    by "soft" I mean the pic is not extremely sharp and the colors appear a bit washed out, it almost looks like a really thin filter is placed before the screen. I bought the card bacause it is H/W encoding, and it works with programs such as MediaPortal and BeyondTV (btw it really sucks in BTV). But to this point my AIW 9800pro using MMC is SO much better of a picture, and the 550 chipset is supposed to be SO much better than the AIW :-(

    doesnt seem to be much help here with the 550 :-(

    Too bad since I am able to view TV in beyondTV (tho it is also crappy) and in GB-PVR (which actually has very high quality live-TV) so I know that card and drivers work and that my system is very capable of quality live-TV with this card. GB-PVR doesnt have the look or features of MP but Live-TV, and TV recording, are what are truly important to me.

    Anyone that has a Theater 550 working, please post your PC and your MediaPortal settings for review by those of us still experiencing problems.

    I though you said earlier that you have managed to get it to work... :?

    What problem/s are you still having?

    I got the VIEW, RECORD, and TIMESHIFT to work, however I am still not happy with the quality. I found the NVIDIA codec to give poor quality, but the ATI works much better. The picture is still "soft" and I can still see "pixel dancing" in solid colored objects. (sorry for descriptions, best I can do...)

    here is a link to a BMP file of a screen shot. warning, it is large. if you look at the shirts, the rocks, and the skin you can see what I mean by a "soft, dancing" picture. It is definitely watchable but not 100%.
