Can someone please assist in setting up mediaportal, I have tried on both windows 7 & 10 but have the same problem. (both 32 bit)

I have a TBS6909 Octo card in which Mediaportal can see all 8 tuners but when I run a scan it will only pick up 5 HD channels. There is nothing wrong with the dish alignment ect as I have TBS 6984 card in which scans and finds all channels no problem.

I've noticed from the logs that the 6909 card shows the Signal Level as 0 and Signal Quality as 60 ... guessing this is not right? (6984 card shows 70+ Signal Level)

DVBViewer can pick all channels up ok on the 6909 card so I know the card is ok, which means I must of missed something when setting up mediaportal.

I'm in the UK connecting to Astra 28.2E (Freesat)

Have attached the logs files, please note this is a clean w10 install as is mediaportal so is currently midway through scanning for channels.

Anyone have any ideas please?

Im in the same boat, im getting same levels as you describe, when i scan i get a small handful of HD channels, nothing more, while in tbsviewer i can watch every channel, sure its software rather than hardware.. just as i assume your problem is also.. we all need help setting up these tbs6909 cards.. im stuck with one pc with all the channels and no way to stream tiny pop to my tv to stop the kids moaning :), i upgraded from the tbs 6285 quad dvb-t/t2 which worked fine, and is no longer an option, theres no tv signal that makes it to my new home in the countryside, and have to rely on satelite, if any one wants a copy of my logs, youll have to tell me where they are :)
