Guys, are there any PCI TV cards or USB adaptors that cover Analogue, plus Satellite digital, plus Terrestrial Digital, plus Normal and Satellite FM Radio?

The Package Deal one might say. :D

There seems to be any amount of cards but I canít find one that does everything. :confused:

The Hauppauge HVR-3000 will do all those.
The HVR-4000 will also plus it does DVB-S2 but NZ probably won't have that for a few years yet.

I have only seen DVB-T on USB TV Tuners.

The bundles software is not yet working properly in New Zealand on the two Hauppage cards, but there are quite a few alternatives that can locate our Optus D1 satellite.

Could you elaborate a little please Bantu?

Are you saying the Hauppauge HVR-3000 card is fine but the bundled software wont work in NZ?

I guess the next question is can you get this card to work at all in NZ or say Aus?

If so, how? :D

Right, and just where does one obtain MediaPortal?

Sorry about all the questions but I'm a bit out of my depth as most have already guessed by now. :D

Mediaportal is Open Source software (free)

The links work for me. If they don't work for you then do a search on Mediaportal on this forum as there is quite an extensive thread on this subject.

There is also a Forum on Cyberlink cyberlink.com regarding trying to get the packaged software "Cyberlink Power Cimema" working with the Hauppage card IN NEW ZEALAND.
Also on the Hauppage forum hauppage.co.uk there is a section on the same with a couple of patches which did not get a working result.

Or search for a HUGE thread on New Zealand on forum.team-mediaportal's forum. It has a heap of info on it.
