    I searched but couldn't find the answer - Is the multiple dvb tuners bug still present in WinXP sp3? TIA.

    Hi Mechaelrmgre,
    I'm not sure which bug do you mean, but after installing SP3 for WinXP you need to install again the DVB hotfix. Firewire and Videoplayback hotfix you don't need after installing of SP3.

    The page showing OS requirements states that a bug in WinXP made the use of more than one DVB tuners impossible. I was wondering if this restriction is fixed in sp3. I have two dvb tuners (Leadtek Winfast DTV1000T). I was wondering if I could use them both? Thanks.

    Hi,
    If you install DVB fix you can use as many DVB-Cards as you can install into your PC with WinXP as operation system. The files in the DVB fix comes from Windows MCE.
    This bug will be not repared in WinXP because Microsoft will sel Windows MCE and not WinXP as multimedia OS.

    ... and yes it is still a problem in XP SP3. Microsoft never bundled those updated MCE files into XP.

    If you install SP3 on Windows MCE, the dvb-fix from RU2 is GONE! :eek:
