    + 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

    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.

    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 0.1.3.0? Or what i have to do to get this thing working?
