Hi, I've just set up MediaPortal 1. I have a SiliconDust HD Homerun Dual Card, having 2 tuners. When I try to record 2 tv shows at the same time only one will record. Windows 8 is my OS. What can I do to record two shows at once?

    you should be able to run 2 or more HDHR tuners at the same time. I have 3 HDHR tuners on my Win7-x64 system and can record 3 shows at the same time. I don't have win8 so I'm not sure if there are any win8 specific details.

    When you setup your tuners do you see both HDHR tuners in TV Servers and scanned both tuners? see wiki

    If you look at TV Channels > Mapping and check both HDHR tuners, are the channel mapped to both HDHR tuners, see wiki

    Are you using ATSC (over the air with antenna) or QAM basic cable unencrypted? It would help if you uploaded your tv.log and error.log files. In win7 the log files are in the following, not sure where they are located in win8.
    C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\log

    I'm not sure what the issue was, but I decided to try a different way of solving the problem. My server has a 2.5Gbps port and the 10Gbps card I added, so I've connected the HD Homerun directly to the 2.5G port, and its solved the problem, I can now copy large multiple files to the server and not suffer with picture issues. There is...

    I have not experienced that myself, and I don't know of any reason why that might occur (but my knowledge of how TV Server works is not extensive). It is strange that you mention this because there are now four DVB-T channels in the UK that behave in the same way (this is new for the UK). I think that these might be some sort of...

    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...
