I installed of MediaPortal. I am running VISTA Home Premimum 64 bit and have the Pinnacle PCTV800e hybrid tuner. TV Server would not work. There were some failure details but nothing that appeared to make any sense about where to start looking. I have uninstalled the software and hope that someday someone will come up with soemthing that will allow me to capture the video off of some tapes to DVD.

I realize that I will probably get the standard "have you tried this..., "it works fine here ...","what is the problem" posts which I usually ignore unless the comment is from a non-pedant.

Anyway, I gave it a shot. It did not work. The log was jibberish. The TV Server did not remain active or could not network, apparently. A big couple of uninstalls later and MediaPortal is history.

Y'all keep trying and I'll keep searching for something that will work.
