It appears that hauppauge now have a series of PCIe cards for DVB-T. Whilst not available in NZ yet they are starting to appear in AU. I particular I like the look of the HVR-2200 which is a dual tuner hybrid with MPEG2 hardware

That looks very cool, my HVR-1100 takes ages to change channel and I need the PCI slot for a wireless card. I will be keeping an eye out for one of these puppies! Awesome looking little bit of kit - HTPC builders are starting to get well catered to.

Can anyone confirm that the Nova T 500 works with DVBViewer?  I assume it will also work with Vista Media Center when M$ support NZ's Freeview standard

thanks

I've just received my Nova T 500 HD model (the only one in stock) and can confirm this is the retail package that comes with a Hauppauge remote control. My understanding is the MCE model is the basic white box with the card only and no remote control.

If you don't already have a remote control then you'll be better off buying the retail package - I assume that when you plug the Haupauge IR receiver into the TV card that it functions the same as a Microsoft MCE remote? I already have a MCE remote so it doesn't worry me.

I just heard back from Ingram Micro and was told by phone that the only difference is the packaging - HD is a retail box and the MCE is white. All the bits inside are the same.

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

... except that the MCE model does not come with the Hauppauge remote and IR receiver, nor does it have the socket on the card to which you can plug the receiver into.

I specifically asked about the remote and was told both had it (the description of the product on the web site also states the remote is included). And they are both the same price.

I assume that the cards are imported by other suppliers so there are likely to be different 'MCE' versions, but it looks like the TechPac HD and MCE models are the same.

You may be right, but I ordered the  Nova T 500 MCE and it was without the Hauppauge remote and IR receiver (and the card had no input socket for the receiver). An acquaintance of mine ordered the Nova T 500 HD and got the remote. This was through www.ascent.co.nz, and both were the same price. Go figure.
