I'm going to give gb-pvr a try as i want to record to record freeview digital and prime at the same time. It also supports overlay. Problem is Tuning Assistant only scans 11 channels which prime aint one of them. I read that Prime=316 but that didnt work with my hvr-2200.

This link didnt work either :(

It's been a while since I've used GB-PVR. Can't remember if it uses channel number and/or frequency number. Seeing channel no. (316) didn't work, try the frequency = 775312500.

But I also think it does depend on what transmitter you are receiving from, so it may require a different channel number. I think there is a post on either HTPC or DVB forum giving various numbers. 316 is the number I used to use when tuning my 150MCE cards in Auckland.

Also, you could try posting on GB-PVR forums, sub is an excellent mod.

You'll have to tell gbpvr to use the cable connection and not antenna for you analog.  You don't actually say where you are?  I'm in Wellington, and i think I have prime on 318.

This is in the capture source channel settings, it goes name, enabled, then channel number, the channel number can be overridden with the frequency.

In the tuning assistant, you should also be able to select cable and not antenna, this should give you your actual number (again hopefully up in the 300's).

Cheers guys. I switched to cable in Tuning Assistant and it picked up all channels. When adding the channels though i kept it aerial and just added the channel numbers and name.


I wasnt able to record dvb-t while watching analog though :(

If you've added HVR Analog as a channel source, and HVR DVB-T as a 2nd source....you'd then have to create both of those again for the second tuner...

Although I think I saw some stuff on gbpvr.com where it has a "funny" setup, since the twu tuners almost show up as usb devices...

You'd have to get the gbpvr specifics for the second tuner, unless it's obvious when you're setting it up.

I don't see why you can't record analog and digital at the same time within MP.  I have one of the hybrid tuners set to analog only and the other set to digital only.  I can record both at same time using RC2 without any SVN updates.

Cool i've setup another dvb-t and analog source on second device and can now record two dvb-t networks at once. Can also record a dvb-t channel while watching prime. But having issues watching dvb-t channels while recording prime.

I tried mp then realised it doesnt support overlay :(
Overlay works best with my setup of ati hd4850 and powerdvd 8 h.264 h/w acceleration.

you have a 8500CPU just use software decoding, i would go with whatever front end you like the best, since you have plenty of power to run both. it is unlikely that you will want to watch tv and use something that uses lots of cpu power at the same time.  Just use coreavc or ffdshow. you may end up having problems with hardware acceleration and interlaced tv with ati card anyway.  I wouldn't waste your time trying to get hardware acceleration going and just use cpu decoding =) My 2c

True my pc is more than powerful enough to play h.264 content using s/w decoders but they all suck except PowereDVD and ArcSoft. And since those 2 also support h/w accel you might as well use that option if it works for your setup and it does for me with PowerDVD.

i dont think arcsoft h264 works with dvb-t in mp. when graphedit was used by those users it showed that it was not being used and MP was using another codec despite having arcsoft selected.  My experience is that using XP + Latest Catalyst + Latest PDVD8 Ultra + Hardware acceleration + MP you still get problems with the occasional endless stuttering loop every 10-30minutes.

That's a shame, hopefully they find a fix for it soon. But yeah i stay away from mp since it doesnt support overlay. Up until now i've been using dvbviewer and it has no problems loading either codec.

Out of curiosity why do you use overlay as your rnderer? It's the lowest possible common denominator when it comes to display renderers.

Well it's main advantage over other renderers is it can display video full screen on secondary device (such as tv) while pc desktop and other apps can have front focus (if that makes sense). I also choose it as it's the only renderer that supports my setup fully in terms of freeview, my ati hd4850 and h/w acceleration. Beside it mayb an older renderer but it still looks good. VMR can give tearing and i hate that.
