I have just bought a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-4000 Quad Tuner to watch Freeview satellite... The reason I chose the DVB-S variant is because I have SkyTV and as such have a coax cable conveniently placed next to my system.
I have tried for two days now to configure MediaPortal, My Theatre, and PowerCinema to receive Freeview Satellite channels but to no avail. I have tried on both Windows XP and Windows Vista. Drivers have also been updated to the latest version from the Hauppauge UK site. For the MediaPortal configuration I followed the guide prepared by Regs (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/Regs/3769).
For PowerCinema, I followed a guide online and applied a patch that was necessary for PowerCinema to work with Freeview Satellite in NZ. But it still didn't pick up any channels.
I would like to know, from all the experts on Geekzone, if my card is faulty or have I done something incorrectly? Other information: I managed to get picture from my Sky set top box to the card via the S-Video/Composite input.
My system spec is:
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
- XFX nForce 630i Motherboard
- Onboard Audio
- Onboard GeForce 7100 Graphics
- Corsair 2GB DDR2 RAM
Many thanks in advance for any help, and tips provided.
