Im running a HVR4000 and Nova-s both tuning the same freeview channels

I want to use one card as a primary to view tv, and the other for recording.

Ive found you cant tune the same channels on each card then combine them.


Has anyone else found this problem and if so do you have a workaround.

Cheers

MediaPortal TV-Server Config has a specific function under TV Channels-Combinations to do just what you are asking.

Cant you scan with 1 card and then map the results to the other card? Then based on the cards priority determines which card will be used for viewing/recording.

They way I have it working when I combine DVB-T and DVB-S, is you search on both cards then then combine them once all channels have been found on both cards. This works as it should... I think.

Problem is when I have two cards both searcing on DVB-S. Maybe this is not common practice.

I want to be able to record and watch two channels on the same transponder, so I have two sat cards.

Anymore help would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you have more than 1 DVB-S card you just need the scan the channels in on 1 card then under TV Mapping map the channels to the other card. Combin channels when they come from different sources. i.e. DVB-T With TvServer you can watch multiple channel on the same transpoder with only 1 card, leaveing the second card free for watching multiple channle on another transponder! :D
