    Hi Peter:

    How do you your MCE/cable setup? I tried to connect the STB to the MCE pc
    via an S-Video cable but the signal isn't recognized...

  5. Also note that there are potentially 3 different s-video ports on your PC:

    1. SVideo in on the tuner card
    2. Svideo out on the video card
    3. Svideo out on the tuner card (less likely)

    Make sure the Svideo is in the correct port (ie #1). And, as Jason
    mentioned make sure you have the IR blaster set up.

    Yes I have: S-Video from STB into S-Video input on TV card
    S-Video output from video card into TV...

    I can see MCE on the TV fine, the problem is in getting a TV signal into my
    Hauppague PVR 250 card, for some reason it is not picking up any signals, I
    suspect bad drivers. The S-video out from the STB works fine, I tested it on
    another TV...

    Once you have that hooked up, you should be able to setup the proper TV
    source via the "Set up TV Signal" settings (under Settings, TV)
