I have looked around quite a bit on the internet to find an answer to my very newbieish simple question. So now I´m asking :)
I live in sweden, and I am connected to the regular comhem cable network. What type of TV-card should I chose?

    Go for a Hauppauge PVR500MCE.
    Dual tuner, double the fun, does work flawlessly witp MediaPortal.

    Thanks alot. My wallet didn't really like the PVR-500 one though. But the PVR-150 MCE edition seems to suit it just fine. BTW, does anyone know the difference between the regular edition and the MCE edition? the regular one seems to be more expensive then the MCE one.

    The variations are with/without remote and with without box, manual etc.
    The MCE is often the one without remote and box ("to be used for MediaCenter producers"). The card itself is the same.

    Cards are not the same.

    pvr150mce tv+radio no remote control delivered as an oem part (just a bag)

    pvr150 tv remote control delivered in a nice box with manual, software etc.
    Sorry, my fault, wortelsoft is quite right. I didn't know there was any difference outside the goodies.
    Two links:
    150MCE
    150

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    Hi mm1352000, first thanks for your lightning fast reply. Of course this is not an issue of Mediaportal. Sorry if this somehow sounded like that. I just wanted to check, if someone has made similar experience and possibly found a solution/driver that works. But the chances that a similar configuration is in use is pretty low, I...
