Well I have almost reached VMC heaven.

I rebuilt my media centre yesterday with the TV Pack and last night spent the evening getting it configured.

I got freeview working using DVB-S. Wow its nice not to have to stuff around with hacks to get it working. Then setup the Telstra box. Had a little bit of fun with that until I worked out that you need to hold the remote right up to the receiver for it to recognise the remote. Went about hiding channels/swapping channels/renaming/merging etc. Setup to get the Sky epg for the none freeview channels and so on.

But I have now found a bit of a problem. When I was setting up for the set top box I had picture. It was very delayed but did have picture.
However now when I switch to any of the channels that use the STB the blaster switches the channel fine but the media centre comes up with a message to say that there is no TV signal Frown

I am using the component in on one of my HVR-3000 cards and the only thing I can think of is maybe the PC just cannot handle having to do the encoding in software now that it is full screen rather then the little preview window used in the setup. There was a very long delay in the feed when I was setting it up maybe 3 seconds which I took to be the time it was taking to process the image.

Has anybody got the analogue feed working on a HVR-3000 card?

Have you installed the SoftMCE MPEG2 encoder software? The HVR3000 doesn't have an onboard MPEG2 hardware encoder so needs a software encoder.

Yip sure have.. without that I would not have been able to see the preveiw I am fairly sure. In fact from pre TVPack experiance without it you do not even get the option to setup a STB.

Nety:  Setup to get the Sky epg for the none freeview channels and so on.


How did you achieve this?  I was under the impression that we couldn't use 3rd party solutions to get EPG data from Sky or Telstra, etc...?

Very keen to know how you sorted this out if it's possible?
