    The Good News: It's an ATSC card, it autotunes, displays a great picture. Yay! Great job guys! Thanks a lot. I'm sooo close to being able to ditch SageTV 4 completely.

    Unresolved Issues:
    1. Occasional Media Portal lockup during channel change. MP needs to be closed via Ctrl-Alt-Del.
    2. Audio progressively becomes out of sync while viewing live tv. Audio leads video.
    3. Pausing Live TV causes audio to drop. The audio stops being sent to the receiver, so I think something happens to screw up the playing graph?

    You probably don't need to do that unless you're using the CI slot.

    Thanks beamland :) Unless you had previously saved those settings, the values that were shown were not necessarily the ones that MP was using. In other words, it might have shown MP Audio Renderer when you first loaded configuration... but that doesn't mean MP was using the MP Audio Renderer before that time. Only logs could have...
