Im looking to get rid of Sky soon and will be moving to Media Portal for the DVB-T feed however I would like to put a DVB-S feed through VMC so my wife can at least still use the 2 Xbox 360s that we have as media extenders, so does VMC support DVB-S if it does or if you have set it up any chance of some links or info.

Cheers

Firstly, Are you an American living in NZ? Or in USA?

Because if the latter, then you may have better luck getting assistance from a native site like www.avsforum.com

If the former, then from what I understand only DVB-T is compatible with any form of Media Centre. But because we are using H.264 for our DVB-T stream, that is NOT recognised by *MC. Only MPEG2, like Aussie uses, is. Sorry.

I don't use console extenders so can't comment on any viable work-around.

There is a hack available to fool VMC into thinking your DVB-S card is a DVB-T card, and therefore allow the viewing of Freeview Satellite in VMC.  I've successfully had it working before.  You will find the info on how to do this on another thread here.

This is said post: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=83&TopicId=18907

It goes into how to get Sky and DVB-S working together, but if you pull out the key bits it will tell you how to just get DVB-S working.
