Hi,

Is anyone running DVBSBridge and a dual DVB-T tuner like HVR2200 in Win7?  I have tried a couple of times but when I go through the set up in MC and select the 3 DVB-T tuners in the signal setup, it only picks up the DVBSBridge channels and doesn't pick up the Freeview channels.

Does anyone know if this is possible? Do I have to do anything special to get it working?
Thanks

I am not sure I understand - why do you need DVBSBridge with Windows 7? I thought this was only something you needed for Windows Vista?

Separate the tuners, set them up as 1 x DVBSBridge tuner and 2 x HVR-2200 tuners.

So when you setup the first one, say the DVBSBridge tuner, unselect the other two, then follow up by adding another DBV-T tuner and then select the 2 x HVR-2200 tuners.

Media Center doesn't like them grouped - the frequencies overlap each other and you end up with the results you've been getting.

Cheers,

Thanks Rusty,

I thought I had tried this, I set up the DVBSBridge tuner first as Antenna>DigitalTerrestrial tuner and then went to add another tuner and the was no option to add another Antenna>DigitalTerrestrial, only the analog option was avaliable the second time.

Maybe I did something wrong, Can I go back and add another digital signal with out loosing the first one or should I have set them up differently?

Thanks again for your help.

It should be fairly straightfoward, it will only give you the option to select additional tuners if you have them available, ie if you don't deselect them the first time, it won't let you choose additional tuners.

Once you've set them up there's no going back.  Its easiest to just repeat the TV setup again - this should in effect delete the tuner database and get you back on track.
