Hi community,
i think about to buy one of these TV-card from hauppauge
- PVR-150 (with hardware encoder)
or
-PVR-350 (with hardware encoder and hardware decoder)

My question:
Is the hardware decoder on the TV-card usefull while playing the recorded videos in mediaportal or decode mediaportal always with the software decoder?

Thanks a lot.

    The decoder is of no use other than using the s-video out function of the board, which you don't wanna do (does not work with MP).

    I had the 350, now I have the 150. IMO: Chose the cheapest :)

    Good afternoon. I realized I never got back to posting the solution I found. Basically, I think I broke this on my own. I had made some registry changes to attempt to increase the video quality, which ended up not being supported by Kodi. Attached is a screenshot of what my final (working) settings are, just in case anyone else...

This card worked perfectly before the migration and no hardware change was made (not a single cable disconnected). Since my passage under windows 10 x64, I can't get...

    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...

    Hi catavolt, selling this HTPC does not mean that I will no longer be available to the community as a plugin developer. If there are severe problems with the plugins at the moment, I can try to analyze causes and find possible solutions. However, this will currently only have low priority, as I am responsible for employees and...
