Hello,

I've just bought myself some brand new hardware to build a HTPC/fileserver.
My specs:
Asus K8N4-E
AMD Sempron 2600+
512 DDR 400 mhz
Asus N6500 PCI-E
Hauppauge PVR-150
Windows XP SP2


I've downloaded the newest MP (0.2 RC2), and installed it succesfully. MP reconigze the Hauppauge succesfully, and succesfully downloaded the list with all the TV-channels. Good so far.

But when I start MP and go the the TV-section: I get a TV picture with allot of flickering. I can browse through all the TV channels, and they all flicker.
It doesn't matter if I watch the TV-pic in small 'mode' (the default screen), or in full screen.

I've installed the newest drivers of the Hauppage. I tested the card with DScaler, and it was all ok. Exellent picture in DScaler. Does someony has an idea of things I can try or modify to get it to work?

Thnx!

Ps, your all doing a great job with MP!

Have you tried changing the video renderer type to VMR9?

Done that, but now I don't see any picture at all. Just black.

Edit:
If I set the TV in fullscreen mode (full screen tv picture), and than 'call up' the MP-OSD, it also flickers. Maybe this info is usefull?

    I think you will find that to get flicker-free TV, you need to use VMR9 renderless. And when you use VMR9, I think that the TV display must be your primary display, if you have more than one connected to your video card....

    Thanks. Your screenshot is showing the "TVGuide", the mentioned "MiniEPG" appears, if you press "enter" or "OK" during Live-TV. But you're right, the channel arrow and PIP button are not reachable by mouse, something insibile is overlapping them and preventing focus. I'll fix that. Anyway, I'll provide a new installer to you soon...

    Nice find there Mr Henry. Wish I had that guide when I stumbled through the driver nightmare that is this device. Attached my copy of the driver zip in case the external web version disappears one day. There is also the option in Device Manager to roll back the automatically installed Microsoft driver (2009/2010) to the working...

I see that RadioTime is now a new software company called TuneIn How do I find...
