Hi all

Has anybody had any luck (or any suggestions) setting this up to receive freeview. It is a dual DVB-T and analog tuner card. I have played  around with it for hours but no joy. The packaged software receives analog tv perfectly and prime is very clear so I am assuming my aeriel is adequate (correct me if this is a poor assumption). When I scan for digital channels though it finds nothing. Is this perhaps because the card/software cannot decode freeview?

I have just tried setting up mediaportal to see if that works but had no luck getting any picture at all, I will keep trying on this though.

I have also tried to use windows media center (vista) but also no luck scanning for channels. I read on a forum somewhere that this card is compatible with media center, can anybody confirm this?

Any help or suggestions will be greatly apreciated.

Windows Media Centre doesn't support our H.264 video standard. I'm guessing that the Compro software you are using probably doesn't either. Compro do have updated software for some of their cards that supports NZ - have you tried their website?

You do also need to be aware that their software doesn't support H.264 hardware acceleration so you won't get great results. Your best bet is to use GB-PVR, Media Portal or DVbViewer which all support NZ.
