I have a pvr 500 analogue tuner in my win7mc. Output is 1920x1080 32bit @ 50hz. Prime is soooooo chunky and the colours are way off. Is there anyway I can get it to look any better with my output? Gotta watch man vs wild :)

Probably not. You're watching a standard definintion, analogue, 4:3 picture on a full HD panel. It is simlply impossible for it to look as good as digital channels.

What software are you using to display the feed? I know that you can change the data rate to a higher level on the Hauppauge cards however as sbiddle says it is never going to look great or even good when it is a analogue source.

I am not sure if it uses the highest data rate when watching live TV or not in Windows. I am trying to find that out myself as I use a HVR-2200 feed via s-video and the picture from our Telstra STB is a bit soft.

Stumbled across this and I have yet to give it a go:

Might improve Prime a bit...? I'm off to try it tonight and will report back later.
