Hi there, can anyone tell me if the msi usb stick will work with the media portal software. If it does it will save me having to get windows MCE.

Thanks

Yes, it works just fine with Arcsoft TotalMedia (as one example). I've got a hybrid MSI USB stick with my Sky box plugged in.

MCE could not pickup the channel from the Sky box, but TotalMedia did. So now I can record Sky direct onto the harddrive using TotalMedia and not have to pay Sky to record!

Thanks for the response, can you tell me if the arcsoft software is free? Also which specific one are you using. Also where do you plug the usb tv stick into your sky+ plus box. I ask as I have a cable TV box.

TIA

Unfortunately it's not free, but try out the trial from my link earlier.

The Sky box has two RF Analogue outputs. I use a standard co-ax cable from one of these to connect to the USB Stick.
