Looks like the card is NOT like the PVR500 and a true dual card.

I ran a test this afternoon pulling a signal off DVB-T and DVB-S at the same time, and only one stream came down..

Im pretty sure its already well known that this card is DVB-S, DVB-T, or Analogue, but only any one of those at once. (I.e. its not a triple tuner card, its a card with three tuners).

I had seen discussions around here but no-one seemed to know for sure.

The card is capable of doing analog and DVB-S at the same time, but I wasnt sure when it came to DVB-T and DVB-S at the same time.

Hmm - I bought this card for DBV-S and possibly DVB-T.  But it's still in the shrink wrap. My goal was initially do DVB-S so I can record Freeview (keeping my PVR250 to record TCL cable). When DVB-T comes, I would only anticipate trying to use the card to record one source at a time (using GBPVR)

I also tried to find out recently whether some of the Hauppauge cards were truly dual-tuner, and found it hard to get a definite answer until I found this page (right under my nose, as it turned out):

http://www.hauppauge.co.uk/pages/products/compare_products.html


This is extremely useful for sorting out the differences between the different Hauppauge cards, of which there are literally dozens to choose from these days (and that doesn't even include the U.S. models which handle ATSC etc!)

The upshot is that the only dual-tuner ones are apparently the PVR-500 (dual analogue tuners, with hardware encoding) and the NOVA-T 500 (dual DVB-T tuners).  It's a shame because the appeal of some of the hybrid cards like the HVR-1300, HVR-3000 and HVR-4000 is diluted by only being able to record/stream from one source at a time.

I cant find any reference to Mpeg 4 in the stats,only Mpeg 2.
Can you confirm this card will do DVB-T here?
The HVR 4000 mentions h.264.

Most DVB-T cards on the market will handle DVB-T MPEG4/H.264 transmisions. Since the decoding is done by the PC and not the TV card it's a software issue. With an appropiate MPEG4 codec such as the Cyberlink one and software that supports H.264 transmissions such as GB-PVR you are able to view the NZ transmissions.
