Hello together,

i have a big problem. (see thread plugin fritz.box.call.monitor
in http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=12732&highlight=fritz)

In MP 0.2RC2 my TVCard funktion runs very well, but the Fritz.Callcall.Monitor plugin runs only under mediaportal-cvs-01-31-2006--19-18. But under mediaportal-cvs-01-31-2006--19-18 my TVcard can not be found from MP setup-programm. Errormessage "no device". My TVCard is an Haupauge WinTV 88x with the newest WDM-drivers. Ohter Progrmms run verry well with these WDM-drivers. So what is worng?

Who can help me for this problem?

Thanks in forward

Marc

TVCard

Hallo, an thanks for your answer,

but i don´t understand that. I think, that only the WDM-Drivermodell is the interface between MP-Software an Hardware. Must ein have a new TVCard with Hardware-Decoder to run MP higher than MP0.2RC02?

Can somebody tell me places of doku for this topic?

Greeting in and thaks in forward

Marc

    Hi,

    info and discussion:
    http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=7456
    http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=12295

    There is more, just do a search.

    The MP team dropped the support because of several reasons.
    1) None of the devs has a SW encoding card
    2) So there is no dev who can give full support
    3) Timeshift with SW encoding cards does not work well / makes much sense (because of the high CPU usage)
    4) Many users of SW encoding cards did complain that this or that does not work (see point 1 and 2)
    5) SW encoding cards were never officially supported
    6) HW encoding and DVB cards are easier to implement (timeshift / recording)

    So yes. If you want to use TV on later versions of MP you should consider to buy a HW encoding card (like PVR 150 - 350). Support for software encoding cards may come back, if a new dev jumps in for it, but I would not count on that.

    It was not an easy decision, but hopefully it can be understood.

    HTH, Flip.
