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...

Copy or move the TV recordings that are older to another hard disk. Then specify this path under Videos (not TV). Then you can watch these recordings normally again. Since I record myself on an SSD, a larger (currently 2TB) would not be an option for me personally. ---------------------------- Die TV Aufnahmen welche älter sind auf...

I'm now using the Digital Devices Cine S2 V7A. I had 2 blue screens when recording + network load (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION with NSIS und tcpip.sys in stacktrace) but that seamed related to my network card: after installing the driver from the mainboard website, it runs stable. I'm still surprised that the power delivered by the PCIe...

You could try using the UNC paths for the timeshift and record folders. On the client machine go to MediaPortal configuration - TV/Radio - Advanced Options tick the UNC paths tick box and put the network paths for timeshift and record folders in the appropriate lines and click OK.
