    (Mr D just PM'ed me but his mailbox is full)

    Most of the dtv cards that I've seen don't have mpeg decoders on them so this wouldn't be possible directly. It may be possible to feed the mpeg stream from the tuner card to the xcard and then into dscaler that way but this may exceed or at least push the pci bandwidth a bit too far. Probably better to wait for dscaler as a filter later this year.

    I thought it was feeding PDI from the X-card to a Holo card, not to the X-card?

    Richard

    PDI is about that yes. Here we're talking about getting the MPEG stream from another card rather than a disk or a DVD.

    Thanks John

    Retro the idea would have been dtv to suitable capture card via pdi if it had an mpeg2 decoder on it. As John is saying that he hasn't seen a dtv card with an mpeg2 decoder he's suggesting that piping it to an xcard then on to the capture/holo3d card might be an option but doubtful.
