HTPC notes | my linux notes | | | Write a comment
My personal notes collected while messing with my HTPC running Windows XP SP2 and GBpvr with a Hauppauge PVR-500 (dual analouge tuners) a Twinhan DVB-C CI (AD-CP300 / 2033) and a TerraTec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C (digital cabel tv on the YouSee cabel network in Denmark).

ACamd v0.5.0.9 multidec cardserver
Okay, it's been a while since I last played with the set-up (I actually put my Hauppauge PVR-350 back in the machine to have 3 analogue tuners...). But I bought another DVB-C card (a cheap used TerraTec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C), to see if the Twinhan card was responsible for the freezes in GB-PVR.

It turns out that it probably isn't a hardware fault, but rather NewCS that freezes the machine. I tried a new cardserver, ACamd, which isn't a stand alone program, but a multidec plugin. And voila, it works reliable!

ACamd v0.5.0.9 and Yankse v1.3.2.1

The strange thing is that while I do get perfect live tv in GB-PVR (stable too :o)), I can't actually get it to record anything meaningful. The only setting I get files on is the TS (TransportStream) setting. But the files I get aren't unencrypted, so they're no good...

I'll have to spend some more time tinkering with it :)
