Thought, I'd offer it here first.

The Nova T is a PCI based dual DVB-T Tuner.  I've stopped using my PVR box while it's in storage so up until March it was in use every day.  I was using it with NextPVR - along with a couple of HVR3000 Hybrid DVB-T/DVB-S cards (which I may need to sell also).

$60

I'm Wellington Based and will ship - but unsure what the shipping costs are.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand?

Hi,

I don't suppose you have a spare set of cables for this card?  I have one too, and I am looking for a way to get composite in to the HTPC (running Windows 7 MCE).  Or do you have another card that can do this?

Also, I don't suppose you have the IR blaster cables that come with the MCE remote? The ones that plug into the back of the IR receiver?

it did have the Ir Receiver - not sure if it blasted also.

It was sold yesterday via trade me.

Hmm composite in...the digital cards were never great at this....the old analog ones were better - and specifically the analog ones with the mpeg2 encoding chip.  All the digital cars, have analog but it's software encoding, and the software you run on windows will never pick up that part of the tuner.

Hmmm, interesting points.  So something like this:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/computers/components/video-cards/pciexpress/auction-751216801.htm

would work better?  I am trying to add composite in for Igloo, and use my current DVB-T tuner for the Freeview channels (plus Nine that I get on DVB-S2).  So it has to work with Media Center   I did have this kind of set up way back in the day with Sky, worked brilliantly.

I did consider a Colossus and using Component (even though it's not HD) as its supported by Media Center, but it ain't cheap.

I think you're a couple of operating systems past the prime of those.  I remember having one back in the day for my first tuner card....before moving to a hauppauge pvr-150 and pvr500 - these were proper analog cards and I'd used these for controlling both a Sky TV decoder and a telstraclear decoder.

But when digital came out, most of the software (I used GBPVR/NextPVR) stopped supporting them.

So that card listed that it's for XP - and windows MCE wouldn't be able to touch it I imagine (wouldn't even detect it).

Sorry, I'm not too sure on your options any more. - maybe post something in the Freeview forum to see if anyone else is doing it.  I know some are using card readers and decoding sky, but some may still be using a decoder.

Wow, I also had a PVR-500!  Dual tuner PAL PCI card, in a Shuttle XPC.  It was this card that I used to get composite video in from my Sky decoder.  Damn, I think I ended up binning it :-(  I will check, but thanks, you have given me enough info to proceed.

Not to get too far off topic but I have a spare PCI Hauppauge PVR250 card that is no longer used. I think they are still supported by GBPVR since that is the only way to capture composite or s-video. I used it to capture s-video from a Telstraclear (now Vodafone) cable box.  I stopped using it because I went to a Brix ultracompact PC that has no PCI slots so I had to find a USB solution and ended up getting the Hauppauge WinTV USB2 box which also has MPEG2 encoding in hardware and is supported by GBPVR (not sure about NPVR)

I'm not sure they are supported by nextpvr. If believe if you can get the drivers working the. You may have some success.
