Windows Media Centre XP And Freeview -how To?

http://www.savastore.com/item?26833818&itemcode=10279210 I'm amazed you can find anything on freeview worth watching, let alone recording and watching another channel at the same time. As I recall, the set up asks you to punch in a few channel changes/characters & from this wmc 'learns' the code set for the given box. The receiver will indicate Select Location = New Zealand Press enter to automatically scan and place into memory all services transmitted in the region. Media centre is just fantastic once you know what you're doing, since it is from MS & therefore not likely to be working properly! have a peek here

I have been running my Media Center with a Hauppauge Nova T 500 dual tuner for a few years without any issue, this allows two channels to be recorded at the Can someone please help me? BTW if you do use the tuner card instead of the stb, choose Midhurst over Whitehawk Hill - more channels! I have tried using a normal aerial to get a signal but it is really crap here in Shoreham, or at least in my bedroom, hence the need for a box! why not find out more

Yes, there's a cable coming out of the wall - two actually (maybe the dish has dual outputs?), but they're not long enough to reach my PC. The PC world I suspect you use, is IMHO, absolute rubbish, so if your pc is from there, go back & moan. Thanks!

Did you select NZ in the program before you scanned for channels? Just plug the dish cable into the back of the tuner Well, can the dish be powered straight from the PCI card?

Would u recomm it or not? It's higher power than Oxford in any case.The channel allocation for Sandy basically covers the whole UHF range, withanalogue channels spread over 21-39, and digital 40-67. Which is why I will need some kind of extension cable. check this link right here now View my complete profile Forums @ The Digital Fix > Gadgets and Gizmos > Computing Forum > Should I upgrade to windows media centre?

One word of warning - the IR blasters can become upset if you use more than one remote, so for sanity, once it's set up, ditch the tv remote, get up I just don't trust M$ to deliver a safe, stable new opsys.

  • It's probably not Vista ready, and regardless of whether you like Vista now, you're going to want to switch eventually!
  • Playtech (http://www.playtech.co.nz/product.php?action=showdetail&id=3317) would be better and cheaper :thumbs: DVB-S doesn't work in Windows Vista Media Center without some hacking and making the system think it is actually a DVB-T card.
  • I couldn't _seem_ to find any on Multiplex B (andmaybe C?) but I might have been doing something wrong.Post by Alex FraserWhich transmitter is being used?

If you're not sure, whereabouts do you liveand which (compass) direction is the aerial pointing in? Far easier UI than any Freeview PVR I have seen, and I personally think easier than Sky+ box (satellite) or Virgin’s Tivo (cable) though I don’t have much experience of these Did you select NZ in the program before you scanned for channels? Yes, Freeview does come off the same sat as Sky so nothing needs to be done to the dish.

Processor requirements (minimum): a.. 1.5 GHz Intel P4 or equivalent (for digital TV) b.. 2.8 GHz Intel P4 or equivalent (for analogue video recording) b.. navigate here I am a completely hooked on the ease of use, especially if you just want a means to watch and record Freeview (the UK free to air terrestrial service). Not sure what they mean by Universal LNB?? I use a USB tuner here, but its got its own program.

If you're not sure, whereabouts do you liveand which (compass) direction is the aerial pointing in?I believe it's Sandy. If your stb fails to configure when you've set up your IR cable, then there is a strong likelihood that you have one of the damn boxes that uses an incompatible samnorr31-07-2009, 08:04 PMUPDATE: I have now bought the card and just installed it and plugged it into the satellite cable. Check This Out In most cases, there was an option to "Use listings from broadcaster" - which I assume gets the listings from the broadcast signal, just as a Freeview TV would.

I'm looking to buy a Laptop which has got Windows Media Centre on it. MCE uses IIRC, IR6, so you really do need a compatible stb for it to work. samnorr31-07-2009, 10:03 PMbump Speedy Gonzales01-08-2009, 12:50 AMWhy would you need a set top box, if youre using a tuner.


I just want a basic laptop that'll provide speed for internet use, word processing for letters etc (does Media Center have XP too ?) and also to use it to build davidmmac01-08-2009, 01:23 PMYep, Optus D1 is the satellite. The drivers all installed fine and it looked like it was going to work - but both Media Center and the bundled WinTV software are unable to detect any channels, or The random thoughts of Richard Fennell on technology and software development ← Black Marble events for the remainder of 2011 and into 2012 No error detail when using VMPrep → Experiences

You even said yourself, "only have 1 but don't really need 2". I did select NZ. This is a quote from the tuners manual which may help you. this contact form I wimped out and ordered another nanoStick.

I think the reason it wasn't working was a combination of both using the wrong cable (as I said there are two coming out of the wall, but only one seems I may try that soon too.

The sound does the same thing.(& maybe also breaks up into large squares sometimes??)What you are describing is pretty much the Digital TV equivalent of'interference' (bad signal) on Analogue TV - Parapunter5th Oct 2007, 10:22Er, problems with set top boxes and media centre are generally caused by the set top box. So I plugged in the new USB tuner, so I now had the 3 tuners, the dual Nova T 500 and the nanoStick.
