I just got the AverMedia Trinity tv tuner (PCI-e). It is supposed to add dvb-s, dvb-t and analogue tuners to my HTPC.
Unfortunately I really did not figure out how to set it up. The manual is more than useless. Installation went OK I would say, Media Portal shows the new tuners just fine, but...
- on dvb-s section, I cannot set the parameters the same way I do it to my FTA STB, to enter the transponder frequency, symbol rate, polarisation, etc... All I have is scan, and that just returns "no signal" on everything.
- a scan on dvb-t tuner returnes the same thing, "no signal" everywhere. Remove the aerial cable from the Trinity card and stick it in into the the older Hauppauge Nova-T and everything works just fine.
Is there any way to input the transponders frequencies for the dvb-s channels I am intersted in?
I previously used a STB with a tone switch and 2x LNBs, all working perfect for years now... How do I tell the Trinity card to use the 22kHz tone switch? The STB has an option for each transponder (satellite?), "22kHz" is on or off; I could not find such setting for the new card! And the card by itself did not find anything. It shows signal level at around 80% but signal quality stays zero for the whole duration of the scan.
I did not install the rst of the software on the disc, just the drivers, as I was afraid the new software will interfere somehow with MediaPortal, which I would say it really works well. Any advice will be really appreciated.
