Hello folks. I've installed MediaPortal to see the TV integration and it finds my USB receiver ok. I've added the following to the dvbt.xml file:

country name="New Zealand - Wellington (trials)"
  carrier frequency="690000" bandwidth="8" /carrier
  carrier frequency="706000" bandwidth="8" /carrier
  carrier frequency="778000" bandwidth="8" /carrier
/country

But it doesn't find anything. Also, the configuration for H2.64 codec is greyed out. Any ideas?

Never mind the codec. The Wizard works fine when running the program, but not in the initial one.

I will try manually entering the channel info.

It's only the TV server that has proper H.264 and AAC audio support isn't it?

I was going to have a play with Media Portal again, I haven't looked at it for a year or so.

Yes, make sure you install TV Server in the single seat setup - guide + video tuts (very good) on the mediaportal site. TV server has the best DVB support. You need to install a CVS build of both the TV Server and Mediaportal also, since only these have HE-AAC support.

And wait for mcraenz to reply.

You only have three frequencies in your DVBT.XML file - possibly the KauKau frequencies. I have all six in mine so that I search KauKau and the Fitizherbet/Baxters Knob sites etc. My DVB-T signals come from Fitzherbert so if you cannot see KauKau also you will need to extend the frequencies you are scanning.

Cheers Mike

Thanks... Actually we can see Mt Kaukau from our window and it is probably about 2 Kms away from this house... DVBVIewer works beautifully - I just want to find a media centre solution that is completely integrated.

Ok, great. Well let me know if you find a really workable solution for DVB-T. To be honest, I have put it to one side for the time being. I can see and hear TV1 and TV2 using Media Portal, but TV3 just stops it dead. After a while, TV2 starts to hang and become unpleasant and the load on the box is quite noticeable. DVB-T will stretch the mini mac to its limits just running in client mode to Media Portal. You may have better results with DVBViewer and MCE.
 
I have reverted to DVB-S with Media Portal it all works perfectly - much easier to setup and use.

Cheers Mike

I'm running a fresh install of MP and TVServer - installed on the weekend.

DVB-T works great but only when using EVR instead of VMR9 - EVR allows the hardware decoder in my ATI HD2400 to be used otherwise TV3 is unwatchable - loses sound sync and has a lot of blurring with CPU running high to max. But got it working with EVR last night so its all going well now.

I have a C2D 2Ghz 4GB RAM.

I haven't paid a lot of attention to the Media Portal threads but am keen to try it now that it's got DVB-T support. Has anybody written a basic guide to getting the system up and running with TV server?
