Dear all,

As you can see from info above i have 2 cards - DVB-S and DVB-T. Have to say that each card alone works fine. But when both enabled i'm getting problems with DVB-T as it seems that TVservice selects wrong receiver (tuner?) and selects DVB-S instead of DVB-T. What is strange that DVB-S works fine. No problem that DVB-T would be selected instead of DVB-S.
What is more strange - friend of mine have similar config - only different DVB-S card but the same DVB-T card. He has no problems. And that's make me ........
I have latest BDA fix installed. My friend has not and still it works on his HTPC.......

As result of course i'm getting strange error messages of trying to read/write protected memory (i had thread early Jan but none had and idea why).

Please help to understand where i have to look to find out the cause ? Have been trying to solve this for more than 1 months now.

Full log's of course attached.

Thank You,

I got from friend of mine an DVB-S SkyStar2 card. It worked well with DVB-T AF9015, so the only conclusion is Pinnacle drivers!!!!

De-installed and re-installed 4.91 ! No change again.

Q: Does anyone here have Pinnacle Sat Pro (450i) together with other DVB card and both work well ?
