WinTV won't won't work with DVB-T as it has no support for H.264 video.

If you want DVB-T your choices are PowerCinema (should have come with your card), GB-PVR, Media Portal or DVBViewer.

PowerCinema should come with the card.

The UK Hauppauge site also has NZ specific patches to help with DVB-S.

I had the same problem and it took forever to sort out trying all sorts of patches from the vendor.

If you keep hitting a wall let me know and I will try and find the info I found helpfull for you Smile

What software are you trying? If you are still trying WinTV it will not work.

You also can't download a working version of PowerCinema, you can only use the version that came on a CD with your TV card. If this is an older card it will not have shipped with a current version. If it's a newer card it will have a CD that says NZ AAC+ (or words to that effect) on the front.

From memory I found this thread on the Freeviewshop forum helpful.

The final fix for me was somewhat quirky and relied (from memory) on upgrading my PowerCinema to a certain version (not the latest at the time) and then patching it.

My initial problem was one of picture but no sound, then I had the opposite at one point then finally a eureka moment.

I should add I was only trying to get it running using DVB-T at the time as I wanted to watch HD tests etc (and in the end also the Olympics coverage on the extra TVNZ channel.

Keep me posted if I can help I'll certainly try.

Certainly the easiest and best solution is to get PowerDVD8, Monogram AAC decoder and then GB_PVR, Media portal or DVBViewer. All 3 do a far better job than PowerCinema.
