    Hallo,
    I want to buy a new TV card for my HTPC project. I am looking for a DVB-S2 (HDTV) dual tuner card. So I found this product:
    -TECHNOTREND TT-premium S2-6400 (TechnoTrend . Performance on your side)
    Has anyone any experiences using this card with MP?:confused:
    Thanx,
    GE

    Hi geichel

    Technotrend premium series cards are not supported in MediaPortal. :sorry:
    You could try a TBS, Digital Devices, Tevii or KNC card.

    Hi Siva

    It *may* work if it has a BDA driver. However some of the features like the hardware TS processing and decoding would almost certainly not be supported. I would not make any guarantee about it working at all...

    Hi mm

    Might it be worthwhile contacting Technotrend and see if we can get a sample to possibly add support for above, never mind just seen the cost compared to the others, not a cheap card.

    How come the Tevii is so cheap as here TeVii S480 Dual S2 PCIe Card, what does it lack, just for future reference ;)

    Hi Ray

    MisterD is working quietly on support for the older TT Premium models so I think best to let him do "the business" and then see if any changes need to be made to add support for this new model once the older ones work.

    Regarding the differences: the 6400 has very unique features. It is basically a complete dual tuner STB on a PCIe card. It can decode and output streams by itself with on-board TS packet processing and hardware accelerated MPEG 2 and h.264 video decoding. Note the HDMI and SPDIF outputs. It also supports a CI slot for decrypting. All of these things are not present on the S480. Not that the S480 is a bad card at all - just that the 6400 has some pretty unique and advanced abilities.

    Thanks for info, still seems overkill and availability seems to suck :(
