Now, after reading Fossie's guide, it layed down the way to get DVBViewer working correctly, however there have been some variations for myself. I figure that other people will probably have different variations depending on things such as OS and hardware etc.

I thought it would be a good idea for people to write a short description of what they've had to do to get their DVB-T/S setups working, so that others may try some of the steps to help theirs get going as well.

Heres a general idea:

Tuner Card: Hauppauge HVR 3000
Video Card: ATI HD3870 (Supports H.264)
OS: Vista x64

How I got it working:
Followed Fossie's guide for DVBViewer. After installing Cyberlink DVD 7, encountered a problem with DVBViewer reporting an error message: "Cannot load Source Filter. Error: 0x80004003. Invalid Pointer".
Resolved by downloading Monogram AAC codec (single file with file extension .ax) and copied into the C:\Program Files\DVBViewer\Filters folder. Ran Register_DVBSource.exe file and resolved the issue.

Non computer related issues:
The aerial on my roof was of poor condition. As I have a clear line of sight, I purchased an indoor UHF antenna. I can successfully receive DVB-T through this. Some channels have intermitent reception. May need amplifier.

You had this issue as you didn't use Cyberlink PowerDVD 7 ULTRA.

sbiddle:
PowerDVD Ultra appears to be the only product that will decode these signals at present. The free and demo versions won't decode H.264 and neither coreavc (or ffdshow since it's just using coreavc) since they are incapable of dealing with the interlaced signal.
