I searched the feature requests board and was surprised to see no one has mentioned this. I think support for the Fusion, ATI and A180 HDTV cards would be extremely nifty.

I think they're discussing DVB tuning. But I dunno how related that is to ATSC tuning.

That's a good point. However, as you probably know, it's been announced that there is support for some ATSC cards in Media Portal now, and there'll be even more on July 1st when .1.3 is released.

Over the air ATSC is working well on the current CVS build for me with my Fusion3-T. Now all it needs is be able to support QAM decoding with it. (If there's anything I can do to help add QAM support, I'll do it)

    Details about the Fusion:...

    QAM decoding is under development due to the variations in Cable service providers. QAM256 generally has been reported to work, although QAM64 still poses problems with the decoding software. FusionHDTV QAM decoding is limited to only the non-encrypted channels available (generally the OTA local stations).

    The ATSC implementation to date is OTA focused.
    If you have the abilities to program in C# and then ability to make MP cable aware for ATSC then by all means download the source files and submit the patched files to Frodo to look at.

    Hi Dman/Frodo,

    I'm an AVSForum member newly introduced to your excellent app. It has come a long way and looks to be improving rapidly all the time; congrats to you, Frodo and the entire community.

    Wonder if you might help me. I searched Wiki, FAQ's and forums but still can't find a proper answer: do people have 256QAM tuning working with MP yet? Is there a build which would allow me to use the Zap2It-fed EPG with a FusionHDTV 5 Gold (BDA drivers) for QAM256 tuning? Has anyone made this work? Are there plans in the CVS to make this work?

    I'm assuming there are no plans to interoperate with the hardware-based (non-BDA drivers) MyHD 120/130 series of cards. If there is any current or planned interoperability with MP, please let me know, as I would be very interested in this as well.

    Many thanks in advance for your guidance.
    -Adam

    Ad-Rok,

    Try your FusionHDTV 5 Gold with the latest SVN build of TVServer.

    Ok, thanks for the User Management tip - I now get what I would expect. Now all I have to do is to figure out how to make Auto Login do what it says on the tin. The only way to make it work is to manually log in each time. Any hints as to what I'm missing with the login system?

    Did you see this thread ? The poster in that thread could not get MP's Schedules Direct plugin to work. I tried it on my test system (I don't have a Schedules Direct account), but I could not get it to work either. @framug mentioned that the plugins run no more than once per day, so that may have been my problem. However... I...
