Ok , I finalyy got my WinTV DVB-t. After some rebooting testing different drivers etc I got it to work.

Just some info on the capture:

The sounds is often in "MPEG AUDIO" but can also be in and WILL be more and more AC3. The MPEG-2 stream is directly streamed to the disk @ about 4-6 mbit/s. The res is 720*576 and it can be opened in DVD2AVI and then perhaps GordianKnot.

This thinmg works great, now I just have to figure out my deinterlacing properties...

Regards, Olle

Great. I have a WinTV DVB-s coming next week and my excpectations are high. About AC3, does the card handle that? AC3 isn't part av the DVB-standard.

If you want ac3 sound you need WinDVBlive from http://www.odsoft.org .
As far as I know it's the only DVB software that can handle ac3, the standard software supplied with the DVB card cannot.

Hey. I was just wondering what kind of Digital-TV you got.

I want something like the one you got. But I don't use a sat dish. I have cable. So I am looking for options.

Technotrend has threee different cards:

DVB-s for satellite
DVB-t for terrestrial
DVB-c for cable

Don't know if Hauppague OEMs all versions though but the same cards are also made by Siemens, Technisat and Galaxis so look at those for alternatives.

Well I don't, but I'll try to guess what they are saying ;)

A question to all of you, do any of you know if the card works in Sweden? (I'd just like to make sure before I waste money)

And Zh, what do you think about the quality?

I have cable, too, so I'd love to know if DVB is available via cable yet everywhere in Germany, or if it depends on where you live.

i think you will get at least:

- ard/zdf pakete (ard,zdf,dritte,doku,info,3sat,arte und son kram)
- Premiere World
- einen haufen ausländischer verschlüsselter sender

all other (sat1,rtl,pro7...) may be different from region to region.
here is a list of tv-stations (analog/digital) for all regions:
www.kabelnetz.de (service->frequenzen)

but i think pw is enough.
