Hi Guys/Gals

Come to a bit of a stuck spot.

I have windows 7 Media centre running with my hauppague Nova-s flawlessly.

Problem is I now have Sky tv installed and want to run this through my media PC.

However for the life of me I cant find the STB option that I have previously seen in Vista.

Does anyone have a Win7 setup with sky tv, I think it maybe directly related with the nova-s card or all Satellite cards (possibly single Tuner) I have the access to a PVR-150 which im thinking will fix this problem but would like to make do with the setup I have currently

Any help greatly appreciated.

Presumably you do freeview via the DVB-S and you want to connect the Sky via SVHS?  I'm not sure if you can do both at the same time with 7MC on this card so you may need to use the 150 as well but it is worth a go first.

I can't say I've tried it but I think you will need to redo the whole TV setup.  When you first select Satelite i the setup you should get the question about having a set top box. If you select no the first time (and finish the setup options for Freeview) you will then get the question to setup another tuner.  Can you select satelite again this time. If so you should be able to do it. You could try setting up the Sky first too just to see if it makes any difference.

Yeah I manually reset the config for MCE but still no option for STB.
Plugged in the 150 media centre picked it up right away asked me to configure.

Got half way through and realised I have misplaced the IR blaster cables from the MCE remote. Picking up one from a mate today.

Thanks for the reply tho
