Been on OTA for a while now. Looking to add to my 'free' stations - and to slowly get away from Rogers. Now i'm thinking of going into the FTA realm. Is anyone using their MCE system with an FTA setup -- internal PCI DVBS, or FTA set-top-box.
So far, my theory is that with an FTA stb, i can just input to my analog tuner card. MCE should be able to treat the FTA stb as a standard stb. Wonder how the guide will work? FTA doesn't really use a program guide (right??).
Does anyone know if MCE supports DVB-S tuner cards?
So, for your Twinhan, you just installed the XP drivers, and MCE recognized it?
Yes. I'm testing MCE, don't run it full time.
But MCE does work for me with Twinhan 1020a when non-BDA drivers are used.
Whether it will work from the GUI - I don't know, it would be an issue with the player used (I use myTheatre).
I've been running MCE with my veiwsat ultra with no problems, The guide seems to work ok but as far as the "free" channels go you can only sellect one provider i'm running tracking tree birds. The Picture quality is ok but I am currently upgrading to a PCI card to get the HDTV.
