Hell othere again,
well I have just spent another few hours playing around with the syatem and still no joy getting a TV picture on media portal using my T200 card.

Now using the supplied software with the card it is easy, as all I want to do is view a picture using a composite input from an external source, and this enables this option.

Yet, no matter how hard i look I can not get the option of composite in anywhere in either the configuration program or the tv wizard...

I am running the latest drivers and RC 2 of MP...

Any one able to help me before I just sling the sodding thing in the garden and smash it up into lots of really small pieces with an axe, then set fire to it and then bury it under 20 tons of concrete!LOL.

Well, have been playing around with it again....

If I use the bundled Compro Tv it is fine...

I downloaded the trial of Showshifter and it is fine....(apart from will nott let me record)

    Hi Lee,

    Well T200 doesn't really tell us much about what brand/type of TV card you own. Is it the Compro VideoMate DVB-T 200? If so, then it should be supported. Do you use the correct type of drivers for the card? MediaPortal needs BDA drivers for DVB type capture cards.

    If you can't get it to work, the please post your mediaportal.log file so we can see what's wrong. While you're at, please fill in the support template as well, which is listed as announcement in this forum. If all this doesn't help, you might want to drop by via IRC, to get some interactive help.

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    Great Guide! I have about 20 hours so far in this and love the product. Since you have a very good grasp of it can you point me to how we record tv shows without recording reruns? I know this is probably very basic but anywhere I post on the forum on this is met with a deafening silence. I am sure Mediaportal can do this easily since...

    80 to 140W isn't as bad as I expected, I'd rate you at 2 freezers :-). Currently I use 105 to 140watts for my server but this includes the switch, modem, micro server and a rather inefficient UPS. With regards the UPS I just worked out today via google that a big UPS with a small load will be inefficent. I am looking at getting a...

    HAve you added the AV inputs in MP config? Go to MP Config/TV/TV Channles and there is a button to add the inputs. Something like "Add CVS" - from memory :) This adds the AV input as a channel. Since the input side is analog, I'm not sure if this will still work as support for analog cards has been removed. You need to edit...

    I just edited that last post and added the Log. It's important to note that all I did was start Media Portal, press the tvguide on my MCE remote and hit page(chan) up and down a bunch till it crashed. I didn't select a channel or "Start TV" like the log states at the bottom.
