Just purchased DVBviewer after using mediaportal for a while, it seems a bit too unstable for me, I've been in the nztivo scene for a number of years so am used to stability.

Just following the DVBViewer guide here
and when it comes to scanning the frequencies it doesn't find any channels. Scan finishes in 5 seconds.  Pic below.

If I restart the mediaportal TV Server service and scan if finds the channels fine.  So it's not my aerial.  Any ideas?
Im running Vista Ultimate with the Nova T 500 card. running on a Intel Q9300 Quad 2.5Ghz

I find it easier to just do the frequencies manually and click scan frequency. It is a lot faster.

I had the same problem. Leaving the start and end freq on default worked for me. Didnt seem to want to work entering the range from Fossie's guide.
