Hi folks... A couple of things while trying GB-PVR.

First is th sound - CDs play ok, but DVD, DVB-T and WMV/AVI all have no sound. I am using the following:

MPEG2
Audio Decoder: Cyberlink Audio Decoder
AC3 Decoder: ffdshow Audio Decoder
Audio Renderer: Cyberlink Audio Renderer (PDVD8)

Advanced Codec:
AAC Decoder: System Default
HE-AAC Decoder: System Default

I tried other decoders but no sound at all...

The other question is about the Microsoft MCE Remote Control. If GB-PVR works, is there anyway to actually hardwire the green button to GB-PVR instead of the default MCE?

Do you still have Media Portal installed? If not you probably don't have the Monogram AAC codec that is required for AAC audio.

Download that here, register it, and then select that as the AAC audio codec.

As for mapping the green button I have a program running on my machine at home but can't think of the name of it off the top of my head. It allows you to remap any of the MCE remote buttons so I have the green button mapped to GB-PVR as well.

Thanks - installed, registered... Got sound, but stuttering.

Rebooting and let's see if anything changes.

Got the sound working, by changing the audio renderer to system default... Testing more now.

I would be interested to know if you get sound with TV 3 recordings. I get sound with everything else.

At the moment I still don't have sound on DVD playback and I can't tune into Freeview TV3 - even though dvbviewer on the same PC can find all channels...

That's because you don't have an AC3 installed.

GB-PVR records the entire TS stream to HDD which means it contains both AAC and AC3 audio. You may be using AAC audio for live TV TV3 but since the playback file contains both audio tracks GB-PVR will give preference to AC3 since this is what most people prefer so you get 5.1 on supported shows. There is no way currently to switch between the two audio tracks during playback.
