Cinergy XS integrated

Hi I have integrated your definition to the capture card definition.xml.
It´s working! So try to copy your posted definition to your card definition.

"Edit the CpatureCardDefinitions.xml file with notepad. Scroll until you find a known working DVB card like the LifeView DVB-T card. Copy the entire section (Your posted definition) from <capturecard to </capturecard> and then paste a copy at the bottom of the CaptureCardDefinitions.xml file. (Between the second last line </capturecard> and the last line </capturecards>)"
Store and open start.bat from your directory of media portal.
Then start media portal and use the dvbt wizzard.

Autotuning is working fine, just needs time but anyway. Zapping is fast <2 sec., sometimes unstable if you try to zapp too fast but it´s ok.
EPG over dvbt stream is working well, too. Some programms aren´t there but it´s first trial.

My configuration is a 1,7 M Processor Notebook, SP2, Newest drivers and media portal version.

So good luck.

I think I found the problem...

seems as if Terratec changes the product ID (maybe with every new hardware revision?)

The CaptureCardDefinitions.xml contains pid_0042 as ID, while my card (you can see that in the Windows Device Manager under the driver details) reads 005e...
