I want to buy a DVB-C Card and this should work very good (better perfect) with Media Portal.

Here some of the candidates I found in the net.

WinTV-Nexus-CA --- 199,- €


+ dual DVB-C + analog
- not to find written on HP that this is real a DVB-C card, but i read so much on the web about it, that it must be so
- not able to make anlaog recordings, so the dual function is for the a..
- very expensive

KNC One TV-Station DVB-C Plus --- 104,77 €


+ WinXP64bit driver
+ DVB-T Internet able

TerraTec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C --- 75,20 €


- heard about some driver issues
- there is officially no WinXP64 driver planed

TwinhanDTV Mini Cab --- 87,20 €


+ a version with CI modul is available
- heard about bad support form the company

Technisat CableStar 2 TV PCI --- 96,80 €

I had the bought the twinhan mini cab dvb-c and they hadn´t worked with media portal. I send it back and try now another.

Someone knows, if the upper Technotrend really works with Media Portal and in Germany with dvb-c?

The Twinhan was on the supportet list too, but doesn´t work.

The twinhan Cab-CI will be supported, just be patient

i think thier is only one dvb-c card that works now... check "definite working" list

Hm im not willing to be patient. I bought this one for one week only for Media Portal. If this don´t work, i don´t need the card. So i sent it for a few minutes back.

I tried to get the card working the whole week, with all tutorials that i found, but never i get a signal and never found a channel. It was not the Twinhan CI , it was only the normal Twinhan DVT Mini Cab.

The Technisat Cablestar2 definitly works with MP Or what i have to do to get this thing working?
