Hi all, (first post)
Read the previous thread on setting up freeview in media centre and also this one specific to vista, it was working fine in XP MCE with my Hauppauge Nova-s-plus, almost got there in vista however it will only play video without any sound in live tv(or recorded), however the pre recorded DVR-MS files do play sound. Sound also comes through fine in the WinTV2000 app.

Any ideas anyone?

Also if you have successfully got it working in vista could you please post your specs (i.e. tv tuner and sound Card)

I have the Nova-s-plus working under Vista.  Nothing special was required to get the sound working apart from going through the media center setup menus and choosing the sound source (spdif/analog etc).

I have onboard sound (asus a8n-vm csm) on my pc and i'm using the optical SPDIF to output to an amp.  Because my "soundcard" has both optical and analog outputs, and vista can send different signals to each, i set the optical spdif to be the default device.

Hmm, still struggling here Cry Could you tell me what region you selected in the setup (mines currently Australia like i had in MCE 2005). Also would you please be able to go into registry and tell me what the following values are:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\VideoSettings - PrefferedLanuageId
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Settings\VideoSettings - SAPOn


Cheers

Ah yea, think it could be an issue with my audigy and vista (creative drivers anyone :P) Although taking it out didn't help, i might try a fresh install without it on the weekend.

Nice work on the dual cards, hopefully i'll get there one day Smile

got rid of my creative card when I had trouble with a sound blaster Live! wint my MCE 2005 machine.  Have used onboard sound ever since.

Have a look at the following thread for configuring the nova-s plus

also have a look at reven.co.nz if you want to get your EPG going with vista.

To be honest my vista + freeview was alot easier than when I first tried XP Media Center.

Only problem with vista is my original xboxes dont work as extenders anymore :-(

Had a setup that was working fine in my previous system with xp mce, however since my upgrade (c2d 4300, vista etc) i haven't had a change to try it in there).

Would you possibly be able to hit up the registry and tell me those settings, just a hunch (doubt it will work though)
Cheers
