Hi People

First post on the site so forgive any rule breaking.

I have just purchased an Aver TV digi super 007 DVB-T PCI tuner card.  Downloaded all new Win7 compliant software off the avermedia site, ran software the installed the card.  Card works fine in windows media centre with all timeshift functionality, but in AverTV 6 the timeshift button is greyed out.  Some documentation i dug up indicates that this software cant timeshift without a full duplex soundcard installed (i only have onboard sound like alot of people these days).  

Anyone have this issue and find a fix for timeshift without the need for a soundcard?  Otherwise I'll just stick with WMC or MediaPortal.

Also, the remote doesnt function.  It has the toolbar icon and the IR detector plugged in but no response to button pushing.  Changed batteries, did a reinstall of software, but no luck.

Anyone had similar problems and found a fix??

Appreciate your time and input.

I've yet to see any software that comes with V tuners to be any good. It's doubtful that it'll support XML import so you're not going to have an EPG anyway.

Just use something decent, there are plenty of choices with nPVR, Media Portal, or Windows 7.
