I have an Intel Core2 Duo/(6400) 2.13Ghz, 2Gb Ram, with Win Xp Pro V 2002 (SP2), 250 Gb HD, NVidia Geforce 7600 GT and Hauppauge WinTV PVR 500 Dual tuner TV card.
I have Dish Network with locals, tried hooking up the coax from the main satellite line at first (right out of the wall) and got no signal at all on my pc. Then realized it wasn't going through the smartcard... so I ran the splitter from the back of the TV instead. Now I can get reception on the pc (using either coax from the splitter or A/V cables direct from the back of the satellite box). So far, I have gotten this much to work with ORB 2.0
Here's the issue: It will ONLY show me the channel that is currently displayed on the television (or the dish box...same thing) at that time, and when this does work, it's very choppy at times. I do get the correct cable guide displayed on the pc, with all the correct information, but no matter which channel I try to open (if it opens) it always shows me only what is on my tv.
Does anyone have any other ideas? What software can I use to transfer the shows to the PC, and edit the commercials out?? ALL information I can find refers to Windows Media Center Edition!
