When Prime became available on Freeview and Windows 7 was released I decided to bite the bullet and replace my trusty old analog 500MCE with a nice shiny Nova T 500 HD.
I spent some time reading about other peoples' experiences and from the forums it looked like a straight forwardish process...
I reformatted the OS drive so I had a nice clean setup.
I installed Windows 7 but it didn't find the tuner card drivers so I had to provide them manually.(88x_2_124_27191_SIGNED). I stuck with the latest Nvidia drivers from Windows Update.
I setup MCE and it found 16 channels (in Christchurch) and things were still looking good.
But, when I looked at the video it was highly pixelated and sometimes had a bit of a green tint. One odd thing though was the Freeview demo/channel 100 seemed to be not to bad.
My machine is no slug, does anyone have any suggestions?
Did I miss the "Don't pixelate and green tint the broadcast video checkbox"?
