Hi Guys, got my digital DVB-T channels working great in MP, but I have a satellite tv box from Austar (paytv provider) that I'd like to use too. I have no trouble using the software that comes with the tv card from dvico, but in media portal tv server setup, I have set up the svideo channel (seems ok)..

But when I go to view that channel in the 'channel' list in mediaportal I get the above error.

Does this mean my card won't work for analog input sources in media portal?

Any help is really appreciated!

to do anything analogue in MP you need a third party comectial MPEG encoder codec, one of the ones specificly listed somewhere in the MP wiki (not sure wher, it is very hard to find). if you have any DVD cration software try installing that and it might help.

Not that hard, just 3 clicks away
1 click on "manual" on the top right in this page
2 click on "mediaportal supported tv cards"
3 click on "related guide" under Analog Software encoder.

Presto!:p

Hi Guys, thanks for the replies.

I ended up getting the intervideo mpeg encoder installed, and MP recognised it in it's configuration.

It seemed to work once, I could click the preview button for that channel and got sound and video. But afterwards I kept getting 'no audio/video detected' errors when trying to view/preview/manual control the analog svideo channel that I added.

I also found the Cyberlink mpeg encoder and the mainconcept one, installed both but they were both not recognised by mediaportal (when intervideo is not installed) (also checked with graphedit and they did not show up in the video compressors list).

So I'm still kind of stuck at the moment. It could just be it doesn't like this particular tv card..? :confused:

Is an alternative to get a card that has a hardware encoder for mpeg2 for analog sources on it (so MP does not need to rely on 3rd party installed ones)? If so, do you guys have any recommendations?

Thanks

I kept looking in the manual for the tv server, where there is also a section on suported TV cards but not that section. I also tried the search on that page and found nothing. that is the page I were talking about.

I did get software encoding card to work and it only took about 4 years. still trying for analogue radio.

I would suggest that you enrich your diet with dopamine-rich food like meat,fish,milk, egg yolks etc. You would see some results in a few months.

@mgillaus
Just check the supported cards in the manual:)

Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...

OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...

The problem is the combination of Digital Devices Card, Alphacryt Cam and TVE3 of Mediaportal. Unfortunately I dont have a solution, only two "Workarounds". First is to try native TVE35 with MP2, i did not have any continuity errors or hickups with that constellation. Second would be to change the cam, I tried RTL HD with a Deltacam...
