hi,

as i don't have space to use riser cards in my HTPC i need a low-profile TV-card...

do there exist any HW-encoder tv-cards? if yes, are there any tests? can anyone recommend a low-profile tv-card to me?

thx

Point of view NVTV

NVTV is a low-profile card. The TV image is good, the IR remote is great, compliment software is terrible, and I believe the board is somewhat locked: I never could get the image from an external DVD source (through s-video).

When MP supports the NVTV board, it may be a good option. Else, you could go for a full-height htpc case. That's what I did (and got a middle-of-road hauppauge board).

Hi, you can also have a look at the new aopen va2000N or try to get a ati e-home wonder, both have mpeg2 encoder.
Both are low profile and cheaper than the nvtv

yeah, just googled, the 150MCE also exists as low-profile.. that's nice, because that would be my favourite anyway, but i couldn't find any pictures.... and nowhere to buy in germany again....

but sounds like an option...

MP2 uses the same TV engine as MP1, so it must work also with MP2, you just need to select TVE3 and not TVE3.5 in the installer. MP2 also supports a 3rd TV engine TVMosaic, but this is configured web-based and I can not tell you, if this works with your hardware.
