I have a V-Stream Xpert DTV, which I understand is supported by Media Portal, but I have no idea how to use it. It doesn't seem to show up in the setup wizard. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Okay, you're corrected. I've had this card running smoothly for a couple of months now. Just a few problems which are more related to MP itself then the card.

I'm using the drivers that came with the card because HIP (remote control app) doesn't yet support the new drivers.

The only thing is I had to add my card to the CaptureCardsDefinition.xml file. I'm at work so don't have access to the file now, but I actualy found the answer on this site. Do a search.

Apparently installing the older drivers over the newer ones (without overwritting any newer files), lets you use the remote using HIP but since my setup is working fine, I "aint touching what isn't broke".

Maybe when .2 finally appears I'll update the drivers and hope HIP gets a plugin for the new drivers as well.

Im very glad to hear that then, its good news for all involved. I am using the latest drivers and the card does work (all features) just not consistantly or really anything even resembling consistantly. Perhaps most of this can be attributed to bugs, should this all get cleared up by the time we see the stability release this will no doubt be a good quality and cheap card making MP much more affordable (hardware) to alot of people out there. All those with this card I urge you to become involved in the bug testing process.

that is absolutely not my impression, I think I reboot my htpc max a couple of times a year, usually (wild guess) when directx derails (symptoms are: frozen image, or sound only at video playback) Mind you, it's MP client only, no tvservice, and mp shutdown before sleep (and ofcourse start again at wake) Edit: leaving MP running...

Yes, that’s planned. The new installer (completely reworked with new GUI) is basically ready, but the alternative TV plugins are not fully finalized. After that you’ll be able to select a TV engine within the installer :)
