    Hi. Can anyone please confirm whether I'll be able to connect our soon-to-be-moved-to-the-study second Virgin [Samsung] cable box to a Hauppauge "WinTV PVR-150" TV card for use with Orb for remote access to TV recordings on the hard disk?

    I know the Hauppauge card's compatible with Orb, but I've had trouble getting confirmation it'll be OK with the cable box. If it's not, please can anyone recommend a TV card that'll do hardware MPEG-2 encoding and work with both?

    Many thanks.

    Thanks: I've now done what I should have done before posting here :blush: and have searched some other threads - I now understand more about what's needed, and the Hauppage card [and lots of others] will work.
