Does this have relevance in the local market? I'd love to be able to have the vista media center experience with my HVR2200..


And I quote..

"Windows Media Center with Windows Media Center TV Pack was certified as Freeview-compliant by the Digital TV Group Ltd., the industry association for digital TV in the U.K. The certification was made in coordination with Hauppauge, which certified its HVR 2200 tuner as part of the same program. Together, the components offer a complete Freeview TV solution for the PC, joining existing manufacturers of Freeview equipment such as Humax Company Ltd., Philips, Panasonic Consumer Electronics Co., Sony Corp. and many more."

Yes, but Freeview UK doesn't use H.264, and the Media Center TV Pack doesn't support it.

Shame. :( Oh well, back to mediaportal I go again.

By the way, I find channel changing very slow with Mediaportal (HVR2200) compared with my vista box. Is this because of DVB-T or is it simply the way things are with mediaportal?

Just my opinion but the point of difference is probably not the application, but the signal.  HD digital vs SD analog
