Not really a question more a comment. Great to see several bugs squished for this card in the cvs dated today (08/02). I've got me a second hand one arriving in the next couple of days (£33.50 on ebay which I thought was a reasonable price) so I'm looking forward to trying it out :) Anyone have any tips before I start? (Currently using a Nova-T)

Good luck! I gave up trying to use MP with the SS2. It looks like the devs of MP don't like this card and have decided to not take the steps to make it working. It's sad as MP is a very good program but the DVB part for the SS2 just sucks.

If I'm wrong (or things have evolved) please post a how to !

Hi Ammm,

As the SS2 is working fine for you can yo please help me to get it working to?

Can you tell me what exact RC2 version you're using the vanilla one or with a CVS? Also which mpeg decoder are you using?
