Morning to the clever end of PPRuNe,
I've just installed MCE 2005 on my pooter which is an MSI mega 860 with LGA 775 socket, pentium P4, Radeon 9550 & 200 gb HDD & 1GB ddr ram. Also, I'm running a Nova Win TV PCI, the 9002 version & I'm struggling to get MCE to pick up any tv Channels. Now, I'm fairly comfortable with the system structure in terms of the overall hardware, I have a new digital aerial, high quality aerial cable & previously, I was running Media Portal with no problems at all picking up digital channels.
I strongly suspect that it's a driver issue & looking around at the Hauppauge forums, it seems to be the case. The trouble is I've now downloaded five separate driver from around the web, all of which are variously claimed to be the fix - what I'm looking for is anyone who has experienced this problem & can indicate the path to joy & serenity
Failing that, what's yer best price on an mce compatible tv card??
