Well I'm trying to get the tv card working under windows 7 x64, it doesn't wortk in vista x64 too.
After some research and try and error tests I manage to get the card working like a charm under windows 7 rc media center using the NXP Semiconductor driver (any Philips/nxp Saa7162 card will work fine using that driver).
Now, under MP I have the following problem: I need a good software encoder taht work. Nor Intervideo, nor Mainconcept work.
Any other sugeestion??

After some search and found and tries, I found that ms provide a software encoder for media center with windows 7 (the main test system) so I guess... why I can use it under mp tv-server to get my card working like mce do?
