    What do you wanna tell us? Without ranting, pls. BTW, there are many digital cards available from Hauppauge. All supported...

    And some countries/regions don't have DVB or ATSC (or not all channels are in the digital bouquets), so have to use analog.

    In North America, all we have is analogue NTSC broadcasts. There is digital cable or satelite reception, but almost all are using proprietary encapsulation and require a STB from the Cable Co. in order to use it properly.

    The only over-the-air digital we have right now is ATSC OTA, and card support here is still very sparse as well as signal strength due to topography.

    Since all we have are analogue broadcasts for the general populace, if you see someone recommend a PVR 150/500 - its because its really the best and only solution in North America. :wink:

    The Point of my previous post was to emphasis that everything is Country/Area specific and a standard answer for one person is not necessarily the format for everyone.
    The best thing this will raise is please be specific were in the world you are and possibly your normal non pc choices before any advice can be given as to which TV card to buy.

    I belive the future belongs to IPoTV (IP TV).

    In Norway it is getting more and more common, and MS is (from what I hear) releasing IPoTV.

    For me it is not momentary i.e.when I press play/pause or stop the red dot appears and stays there and presumably has scheduled a recording, pressing either button again turns the red dot off and cancels the recording. I did not try with the number buttons, I am running MP 1.29.

    Yes, that’s planned. The new installer (completely reworked with new GUI) is basically ready, but the alternative TV plugins are not fully finalized. After that you’ll be able to select a TV engine within the installer :)

    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...
