A while ago I got a TV card for my computer from Aldi so I could transfer cine from cam corder to PC and it worked well.
Because my stand alone DVD recorder has failed I have looked to the PC to record TV programs and I have a program called DVB-T Plus that came with card from TEVION Multimedia and also MediaPortal which I down loaded both running on Windows XP and work of sorts but not very well and seem unable to detect all the programs available. If I re-boot into Linux Mempis and use Kaffeine then I get all channels and card works A1 but don’t really want to use Linux as most other programs I use are Microsoft windows based but shows its not a computer hardware fault but a software fault has anyone any ideas of what I can use in Windows to view TV with. With windows I get just 27 channels and half of them are radio each time I re-scan I gain some and lose some.
I have tried updating and if it was not for the fact it works OK in Linux I would have said my signal was not good enough. But since in Linux it found all the drivers without me down loading a thing all I had to do was scan for channels it seems odd that in Microsoft XP I have so much of a problem.
If I want to record a program from TV I have to boot into Linux which means any windows programs I can't run well I do have dosbox but that's very limited.
Seems I just have to carry on as it is then.
