Hi there

I need your advice on how to install my second nova-s card. Is it as simple as buying a splitter for the cable from the sky dish, then running the new short cables to the cards? Then tuning in tv-server?

Not all splitters are alike.

I bought one where the power didnt go to both outputs... It only went to one, so the 2nd tv card would only get signal when the 1st was active.
There's usually a diagram on the front, indicating whether power goes to (from?) one or both outputs.

As for the Nova-S, if it's the same brand/model as your other card, then it should be a really easy set up. Windows will probably automagically set it up. Windows Media Center might need a prod though, nothing serious.

Thanks for that, exactly the sort of technical problem I was expecting to find after blindly attempting it, hence the questions. Yep, am using a fresh install of XP pro and drivers for the other nova-s, so hoping that side of things will be simple.
