    Hi,

    this is really strange. I have both cards (350 + 150) and no problems with the recording size.

    What drivers do you use? I use those from SHSPVR
    Did you install other TV software? I am really only using the drivers from hauppauge.
    What are the settings for those drivers?
    Setup->Television->Cards->Edit
    Capture-Setup
    Capture Resolution
    (sorry, no exact description, i am not at my HTPC currently)

    Hi Flip,

    thx for helping out. My old tv card (PCTV Pro) was a software encoder card, so i could select at which size i wanted to record the movies. Since i got the PVR 150 this option is greyed out. There´s nothing i can select.

    Here´s a screenshot:

    I´ve installed the latest PVR 150 drivers from the main Hauppauge site:
    http://www.hauppauge.com/pages/support/support_pvr150.html

    Beside that the only other TV app is WinTV2000 to test the card. In WinTV2000 everything works fine. Recording size is 720x572.

    Hope this helps out to find the problem, i´ve searched the web and found out that some other users have this problem too.

    regards _Hensley_

    Hi,

    look also in these settings:
    Setup->Television->Capture Cards->Edit->Capture card->Device Property

    Select "Video Capture Device" / "Video Capture Pin" and hit Setup. Usually MP should override those settings, but perhaps there is something wrong.

    What codecs do you use?
    Are the channel settings correct for PAL?
    Setup->Television->TV Channels->Edit->Analog->TV Standard

    Hi Flip,

    Hard/Software is attached in my new signature =)

    Settings checked and i had only the default settings for all channels. Changed that to PAL_B / Germany but still no luck. Recordings still in 576x576.

    Here are screens from my Hauppauge "Video Capture Device" / "Video Capture Pin" settings.

    http://www.hensleys.de/custom/pvr_150_setup3.jpg

    If i edit any of these settings the settings don´t save. When i leave MP setup and get back into it they are the same as before.

    regards _Hensley_

    I just had a look at my recordings. The oldest one is from September 29th and the newest from tonight (December 6th). If I play them in mp I don't see any problem.

    But when I play them in Media Player 10, Media Player Classic or BSplayer on my mp machine these programs report a resolution of 576 x 576.

    If I copy a recorded file to my second computer and play it in the above mentioned programs, the programs report a resolution of 720 x 576.

    Here one line from the mp capture.log:
    06.12.2005 20:56:18 SinkGraphEx: Capturing:720x576

    And also a part of the MediaPortal.log when playing that file in my Videos:

    So, why do these programs report the wrong size? Can someone explain that please.

    MP has adjustable audio delay. I don't know whether this works for all video formats, but it certainly works for TS files, and may work for MP4 files. There is a slider that allows you to adjust the audio delay while playing a video. Press the INFO button on the remote control to display the OSD, select the "Audio" icon, and then...
