I am new to Media Portal as of a month ago. I am pretty confident in my computer skills but I can't for the life of me get the TV to work properly. I have a Pinnacle HD TV hybrid tuner card which works OK in its own software and is MCE compatible. I set it up as a hybrid card in TV Serer and it scan channels ok (takes forever). When I start Media Portal and try to watch TV, I can sometimes watch one channel for a short time before it freezes but most of the time, Media Portal freezes immediately and I have to restart it. I've had this same problem in 1.0.1 and 1.0.2. Is it that my Pinnacle HD tuner card just won't work in TV Server. Should I purchase a hauppauge 2250 or am I just doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.
