I hope too....Feanorknd:
if you download and extract the MCE CD you have to install the drivers exactly as recommended on the guide page.
then you have to install the MCE encoder which is located in MCE_soft_encoder subfolder of the CD:
After that, you have to install MediaPortal and configure the card as described in my topic above.
I hope it works for you
Thanks so much Noise... this weekend I will try.
