    Connecting an external satellite decoder to vista media center

    I had a windows xp media center ed. 2005 with an external satellite decoder
    connected throught Svideo.
    Media center 2005 had a wizard that ask you about if you have an external
    decoder to watch TV, in this case
    the computer ask you about the connection to capture the video.
    Now with windows vista there is no wizard that ask you that and i need to
    connect the decoder that way.


    Thank you in advance

    Are you running Vista Ultimate or Vista Home Premium? And the 32bit version
    or the 64 bit version?
    What TV tuner/video capture card do you have installed in your VISTA system
    and do you Vista MC compatible drivers for it installed for it?

    As best as I can determine your card does not support its analog tuner with
    MC since it does not have an MPE2 decoder onboard. Itill not support video
    capture either since again an onboad MPEG2 decoder chip is requied with MC
    compatible drivers. It will only support DVB-T video using its antenna
    connection with MC since DVB-T video is alrady encoded.
