So, I'm reading online that Windows 7 Media Centre doesn't support Satellite Cards.  Is this correct?

I have a satellite card here and it's set up and showing in device manager, but Windows Media Centre can't see it (It can only see my Haupage HVR-2200 DVB-T Card).

Was hoping to have both the DVB-T and DVB-S Card working in Media Centre.

Cheers,
Grant

All sorted.. I needed to manually load the BDA drivers.  I now have two Sat tuners and two DVB-T tuners. Hurray!

dont know where you were reading that.... sat cards have been 'unoficially supported' since MCE 2005 (using DVBS as DVBT tuner tricks), and officially supported since the vista TV Pack release.

glad its sorted.

This is the card I have...

http://www.technisat.com/index6be4.html?nav=Downloads,en,33&pID=174

Tried it also with the bundled software, but couldnt get anything out of it.. Might be since I updated drivers with BDA version (though, I re-installed with the non-bda drivers and still didn't work). So might totally remove the drivers and re-try with the bundled software. It came with DVB Viewer, but not sure what settings I need to try.

My Setup:

Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)
Haupage HVR 2200 DVB-T
Technisat SkyStar 2 Sat Card

I had trouble with the Hauppauge drivers from Windows 7.
I had to go to Hauppauge's website, and download the drivers from there.
Install with Admin (through I think it asks iirc). I was really impressed with their driver installation program.

I think I'll just remove it tonight and stick with the dvb-t. I've come to the conclusion that sat card isn't playing ball. The plan was to also utilise the sat card to retrieve EIT tv listings.. unfortunately.
