Hi, Im getting really really bad pixalation etc with this card with media center,I have tried different drivers but it seems to make no difference. My HVR2200 works perfect,but the nova td 500 works fine in dvbviewer. What am i doing wrong with nova td 500 in mce??

I saw something similar when testing out this card as a second DVB-T source. Does it happen equally for recorded tv as it does with watching live tv?

im not too sure actually, I was have to find out. Yes this is gonna be my second DVB-T Source but its completely unwatchable via media centre,yet works perfectly with DVB Viewer. But i want it to work with media centre as its what everything is working through plus I have xbox 360's as extenders to watch the live tv.

There have been a few recent posts from people complaining about poor performance of the Nova TD 500's. These are a different card to the older Nova T 500 which works well.

hmm,Ive noticed that the signal quality of the TD 500 when i goto guide and edit sources to see signal quality sits around 70% at the most while the HVR 2200 sits at a clean 100%. Ive even taken apart the splitter etc to not split the signal but it seems to make no difference. I am not doing that diversity mode

just a note that it is happening in dvb viewer too so its not just media center. Why the hell does the nova td500 sit at between 40-70% quality when my hvr 2200 is 100% at all times and works perfectly

I have the same problem with my Nova T 500 :( I thought it was due to my apartments wiring, but I'm pretty certain it's the Tuner..

Hope you find a solution.
