Installed a HVR-900H USB2 DVB-T receiver in my gbpvr machine. While my Sempron 64 3000 cannot playback the recorded broadcasts (no accelerated video card) the Popcorn Hour plays them back fine. And for TV3 I get audio on the AC-3 track.

But discovered something quite interesting the other day. While gbpvr is recording, the PCH can play the file back with no file contention. I discovered this by accident but did a full test. Started a recording and after 1 minute of recording tried to play the file back on the PCH. Played back fine and I could skip forwards and backwards with no issue. So I now have a way of watching DVB-T broadcasts effectively live but can skip commercials etc. just by waiting say 15 minutes before starting to watch  Cool!

now all we need is the PCH to start supporting AAC-LATM audio, preferably before the Olympics start :)

While that would be good I am happy with the AC-3 audio on TV3 which seems to be on all programmes I have checked. Most of the time it's 2.0 but for the HD channels it's 5.1.

And anyway if the Olympics originate their audio as 5.1 (AC-3) I can't see TVNZ transcoding that to AAC two channel stereo (well they could I guess but why?)
