hi all,
I'm using a xp sp3 htpc with hauppauge hvr4000 to receive freeview with mediaportal, which works fine. Just wanted to make prime working as the tv card supports analog too. unfortunately i had no luck at all as the scan couldn't find any available analog station. was looking if the xp sp3 supports dual(quad) tv cards or not but didn't find much. Any ideas what do I need to make analog tv working?

Yes. the HVR4000 supports analog TV, DVB-S, DVB-T and DVB-S  and DVB-S2 (DVB-S /2and DVB-T cannot be used at the same time)

Unfortunately the HVR4000 does not have an onboard MPEG2 decoder, so MediaPortal can't work with the analog part of the HVR4000. I've tried but to no avail too... :(

Wasn't there a workaround for this in Media Portal that was in development?

I know GB-PVR now supports the analogue in the HVR3000/4000 with the Hauppauge softmce software installed.

Are you selecting cable as the signal type? Aerial only does the VHF channels.

Don't you maen mpeg2 encoder rather than decoder?




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

Tried both... just noticed that the scan runs very fast, it takes approx 15-20 secs for both cable and antenna too...

Analogue on the HVR3000/4000 does work with RC3 but needs a MPEG2 encoder installed. SoftMCE works fine for the Hauppauge cards under GB-PVR, I'm guessing it'll be the same for Media Portal but I haven't with this in a long time so don't really know.

Try reading the Media Portal forums, there are quite a few threads on the topic over there. You also need to have the card correctly configured as a hybrid card.
