    Windows 7 64 SP1 My system is a i3 core, CPU 560, ATI Radeon 5570, 4Gb ram, TV card is a Hauppauge 2250.

    My questions are:

    What TVserver do I download? I did see this WinTV-CI as a server for my card but can not find it to download. Is this the same as winTV7 software? I do not use that since I been using WMC7. Or is there another I can use for my TV card?

    I have cable my company is a local service they do not force me have a cable box like Comcast does. I get more TV digital channels than analog currently.

    This turner I think has two analog and two digital turners each can I use both digital turners like I can in WMC7?

    Hello and welcome Dave :)

    MediaPortal comes with its own TV Server, so this is not something you need to worry about. Just install MediaPortal, and during installation make sure you select the option that says "yes, I want to use MediaPortal to watch TV".

    WinTV-CI is a hardware product (ie. therefore not downloadable) from Hauppauge for decrypting channels. It is not a "TV Server" and is completely irrelevant for your situation.

    WinTV-CI is completely different to the WinTV software.
    WinTV-CI is completely irrelevant for you; you wouldn't be able to use it.
    WinTV software is an alternative to MediaPortal.

    As above: just download and install MediaPortal. It comes with TV Server software which is a suitable replacement for WinTV and/or WMC.


    Yes, you can. :)

  • About The Project

    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 software is one of the best.


  • Support MediaPortal!

    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 appreciate it!
