I have a MCE computer which is running Win7. It has installed a twin DVB-T turner card Nova T-500 and a twin Analogue turner card. With other media recorders you are able to schedule up multiple recordings and as long as they are on the same transponder freq it will use the same turner. So an example of this in NZ would beI could record TV1 & TV2 & TV3 &C4 all at the same time using the twin DVB-T turner as TV1 & 2 are on one transponder Freq and TV3 & C4 are on another. What I am finding it that the DVB-T is behaving the same as the Analogue card where it doesn't seem to be doing any smarts around the transponder freg and instead just picks a few turner so if I was recording TV1 & TV2, TV1 would take Turner DVB_T 1 and TV2 will take Turner DVB-T 2.This really limits me on how many show I can record at once, is this normal behaviour for DVB-T cards in Win07

This is a feature of a few other applications including as GB-PVR and Media Portal. It is not possible in Media Center.]

If you want to record more channels you'll need an additional TV card.

It's MCE that's the problem, and it's been around Since XP MCE, Vista MCE and also windows 7.

Only Mythtv (I think), Media Portal and GBPVR can multirecord off one transponder.

This feature is certainly an exception and not the norm when it comes to TV software.

That's now being touted as a "feature" eh? ;-)
