Vista TV pack issues??


Established Member
Hi All,

I love my media center but my wife is about to ditch it due to the following issues:

Running a hauppage 500-t Dual freeview tuner

Recordings are setup in the guide but its not recording and no errors in history

My wife setup eastenders to record but it didnt and the season link disapeared.

when i delete the extra regional channels due to me being between crystal palace and blueberry hill they come back, i have to move them to a different number.

I installed yesterdays updates but still the same, i want to change over to sat cards for the extra channels but how is the epg and series link on dvb-s cards?

I had similar problems when I installed on top of my existing setup. A fresh install of Vista + SP1 + TV Pack fixed it.

had the same problem with a hauppauge 500. rebuild it or ditch the tv pack which i have done.

There is a thread on geekzone with loads of people having the same problem. cant find it at the moment
