do you power your DireDTV with the powersupply or just via firewireport?

powersupply ofc, since that is what the manual says.
should not even work if not connected afaik.
You mean like this card: Mystique CaBiX-C2, DVB-C, HDTV, CI-Connector
and using an extra slot for the Mystique View CI-Interface (f. 1 CAM) PCI and 3.5" Variante.
It might be a good card but for a dual solution its not...
hmmm, strange - I was never using the (extra) powersupply. I can give it a try.
But I was trying using the Nonlegacy FW-drivers (as you stated above) - this made the TVS unusable - couldn't tune anymore - not even in FireDTVviewer - going back to legacydriver fixed it....
Anysee looks like a card that can replace tha firedtv, anyone tested this card?
Can you buy this card in sweden?
Can you use this card with Media portal?
HTPC realy need a new working solution !
Their HW and drivers are pretty bad. At least one fix for the dropped TS data was to increase process priority (basicly just hiding the real issue with an ugly hack).
It looks like there is no one who has good experiences with a DVB-S2 Card+CI except the Floppy
And I really need a second card with CI Support.
Hm? What does this card have to do with KNC ONE cards?
I would rather say that it seems like no one has any experience at all to share about any card but Floppy. I use TerraTec Cinergy S2 PCI HD CI now, and it works, but not perfect, some issues with the drivers...I'll try to make the best out of it, and i don't get satisfied, i think i'll try out Hauppauge HVR4000 or NOVA-S2. A friend of mine has the 4000, but everything else is the same as my setup, so i'll compare our setups and see which one i prefer
As i said a few times, i also own and use the Nova-HD-S2.
It is a very good card and works nicely
BUT it has no CI. You have to pay extra and buy that "WinTV CI" USB thingy which has a few problems.
first revision (which is still sold) seems to be very unstable - i have that one here
you can only tune ONE channel at the time. multitune is impossible even if your CAM supports it - thats K.O. in my book
it is very slow - tuning encrypted channels takes ~3times longer than with the floppy
it can "freeze" from time to time. only way to reset is un/replug it from your PC
It is possible that with optimizing the support for the WinTV CI in Tv-Server it could work a bit better. But the limitation that multitune does not work is allready reason enought to not buy it.

The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users. In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our

The team works very hard to make sure the community is running
the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us. Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really
