    I am wondering if MediaPortal supports the Hauppauge WINTV-DCR-2650-2650 CableCard tuner? According to the documentation it says that MP does in-fact support Hauppauge CableCard tuners, though when I tried configuring the server to setup the tuner, it does not detect it. It detects my Kworld BDA tuner just fine, though that is BDA. I have updated to the latest firmware on my WINTV-DCR, though it still will not detect it.

    Could anyone shed some light on this CableCard tuner model, and if there are any extra steps I need to complete in order to get it functioning with MP?

    Hello and welcome! :)

    Yes, the DCR-2650 should work with MediaPortal. You need to be using at least MediaPortal 1.6. Also, I strongly recommend that you install this patch:

    The patch is intended to fix slow tuner detection... so it may help you.

    In the case that the patch doesn't help...
    Do you run any firewalls and/or security software?
