MediaPortal looks as if it may be more then what I actually need.

I want to use MediaPortal in lieu of Hauppauge WinTV (currently have a Hauppauge WinTV dualHD).

I don't need all the server stuff. Just want to start MediaPortal and use it with the Hauppauge WinTV dualHD USB TV Tuner I already have installed. Is this possible and if so is there any plugins I need and/or special configuration steps to complete?

Any assistance on using MediaPortal with the Hauppauge USB TV Tuner would be appreciated.

You really are not answering my questions. Can MediaPortal be used with a Hauppauge WinTV dualHD USB device if the server portion is not used? If so, what settings need to be enabled to do this?

Please, i explain you,
you need tv server for use your tv card.
read wiki, i'm pretty sure, it will be explained fine.
I've reviewed the documentation. Nothing about using the server software with a WinTV card.

    No, that's not possible. The USB TV hardware is controlled by the TVServer service, which therefore is a must. The MediaPortal GUI is merely a frontend when it comes to TV.
