Media Centre with more than one source


Just completing my first HTPC build, based on Core 2 Quad, 4GB Corsair RAM, Vista Ultimate 64 bit, ATI 3650 512MB graphics, LG Blu-Ray/HDDVD combo & Hauppauge 4000 tv card.

Still working through some of the setup issues (like getting the blu ray drive working properly), but started playing with media centre. Looks like it asks you what source you are using and then tries to get you to stick to that source. With the the Hauppauge 4000 card I have the option of satellite and terrestrial sources, so I would quite like to use both. Can MC manage this?

Hope so!!

Actually - it is a bit worse than this as it appears that Media Centre doesn't know about satellite receives on cards - the setup only asks about external boxes. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all advice received.
