Has anyone managed to get this to work?
I'm lost as to why it doesn't/what i've missed.

Wintv7 works fine (so i know the card works under windows 7). I just can't seem to get media center to work with it.

Is there anything particular i need to do?

You'll need to be a bit more specific. In general it should work fine so what's not working? DVB-T or -S? What version of Win 7 are you using? If DVB-S have you done manual transponder scans?

I'm using windows 7 professional.

I'm trying to use DVB-S with the HVR 3000. However it scans (it found channels) but for some reason it will just not play the live tv (no signal)

You will need to specify Custom Oscillator, probably 11300 or 10750, then select Optus D1 (NZ) for the sat. You shouldn't need to do any transponder scans to get the Freeview channels.

Now that you've got that working, do a manual transponder scan on 12456 to bring in Prime.

It seems i've already got prime, However i don't have the guide data for it.

When doing a transponder scan (single), There are two options:

Carrier Frequency and Symbol Rate

What goes where?

Freq 12456, Symbol Rate 22500 and Polarity H.

The guide data will populate as you watch the channel.
