Hi all!

Is there anyone having FM radio working with Media Portal and an AverMedia Trinity PCI-e card? When I try scanning for radio channels, MP is displaying an error window saying that the card has no FM functionality (or something like that), but it has the FM jack and the supplied aerial pluged in.

Any ideas, please?

I don't have the same setup as you but I do use MediaPortal for FM radio on occasion. I think MediaPortal requires an MPEG2 encoder either when viewing analog TV or listening to FM radio. Does your TV card have a hardware MPEG2 encoder? If not, you need to make sure you have a software MPEG2 encoder registered on your system...
Hope that helps :)
