Hi,I use windows 7 rtm and have a hvr-2200 tv card with 9500gt video card,Ive given up on media center as im having too many problems with pixelation deteriotion while running dvb-t or audio out of sync. Ive just got dvbviewer and it seems perfect but it would be great to use this in media center instead of crappy default tv. I have a xbox360 extender too which runs tv via media center too,I saw a program called DVBLink but it seems to be dvb-s only? is there a way to get dvb-t to work the same way as dvblink?

If you're getting pixelisation then odds are you have a signal strength issue.

A XBox can only be used as an extender if you're using Media Center. You can't use DVBViewer with the XBox.

Agreed, however i have run DVB Viewer next to media center and when media center lags and has problems DVB Viewer is silky smooth... I have no idea why this might be the case, but i saw'd it wit my own two eyes.

DVBlink should work for you just fine. It simply takes whatever you have setup in DVBViewer (DVB-T, -S or a combo) and then presents it to Mediacenter as mock a DVB-S tuner. The software is not 100% perfect but is quite usable and you can trial it for free for 30 days (and it's great if you have Sky TV - see other threads)
