Hi!
I started using MediaPortal, and let me say it is pretty cool 8) !
But:
Are Sat TV-Cards supported or not?
Because i have no Cable TV and i want to buy a TV-Card(maybe Pinnacle PCTV Sat).
If it is not Supported: how long will it take until it will be Supported, or isnt it even Planned???
Please Answer Fast...
Thank you!

Yepp, they´re working. But at the moment you can´t timeshift with software cards, only with hardware encoding cards like the Hauppauges PVR. The Pinnacle makes problems too with recordings. Olivier-H posted some settings how to get it work at least with low qualitiy, as far as I remeber. Please use the search here, or write him a PM before you buy a card. ;)

If you want to be a "Versuchskarnickel" (*rofl*, nice word!) buy the new PVR 150 from Hauppauge and let frodo help you to make it work. He already asked for someone. ;)

    Yepp, they´re working

    eeh SAT (DVB-S/T/C) cards are not supported yet

    We only support analog tv cards right now
    I would love DVB/SAT support and maybe in the future it will be added

    If will be done when someone has the time and patience to work with it.
    If you are a C++ / C# programmer go to the IRC channel to discuss your abilities.
    I'm sure us DVB-T users in the UK and our Aussie cousins will be greatful as well.

    Heyho, back here again,
    ok i will see what i can do, im not a C#/C++ Programmer but i know PHP, JavaScript well, so i know how to write Programs(well, Scripts...)!
    I know a bit C++ but not very much, and a bit Java too. So maybe i can learn...!

    Ok next theme:
    Is anyone already developing a "Sattelite TV Support"?
    I hope so...

    IDEA FOR YOUR WEBSITE:
    Would be great if you make a Section with Information about Different Features, like in your main Navigation:
    Feature Development -> Sattelite TV
    -> Whatever is requested

    And post there some News... i'd like this because it can take lot's of time to search in Forums to find the News you're interested in...
