  Giggsy252 23:02 17 Mar 2007

At the moment i watch TV via Media centre with the default tv card that came with my Phillips PC. However i want to change the card to a digital one. I was wondering can i still use Media centre in conjunction with the new tv card e.g record or do i have use the program that comes with the card??

You should get software with the Card

With some, you have to recoed via supplied software, but can play back with windows nedia.

got the dvb card, but when i use it, no sound comes out of the card and the picture is stuttering, yet when i switch to analogue signal on same card, it is fine with sound and no stutter.

anyone help?

You may need to connect the sound card to the TV card with a cable at the back or on the card

I am running a hybrid card, using digital only

I installed the tuner software from the disk, but left the displaying part to Windows media.

I had not tried recording, but just done so, and it worked 100%

but i get sound when i switch to anaglogue signal.

and the picture is stuttering yets its fine when i leave it on anaglogue signal. please if anyone can help, would be greatly apreeciated

as when i set up signal on media centre it gives me 2 options

1) analogue and 2) digital.

works perfectly under analogue but no sound and stutter in picture when i choose digital option.

Obviously im in a freeview area.
