    Hi All



    I'm new to this forum and this is my first post.
    I'm using MP for nearly 2 years with little or no issues. My HTPC contains 2 Hauppage WinTV-HVR 5500 tuner cards. Both function OK and I can watch & record SD and HD (unencrypted ) channels via the DVB-C tuner.
    The point is that recently my cable operator has announced they will change the format of the digital cable signal from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4. Anybody an idea whether this will affect my system. I'm asking the question because in the documentation of the tuner card in only mentions MPEG2 for the DVB-C tuner.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Guido

    It will be no problem for the tuner card.
    The provider is changing the video encoding only. Tuners don't care about the video encoding; they only care about the stream format. Unfortunately it is easy to get confused between the MPEG 2 video encoding (which your provider will update) and the MPEG 2 transport stream format (which the tuner supports, and which your provider will continue to use).
