    Hi guys
    I recently bought a dvico fusionhdtv dvb-t lite tv tuner card for $230AU.

    It works okay over extender(xbox 360) on my 32" HDLCD.

    But i cant really notice a difference in the digital/hdtv versions of each
    channel, and i cant hear 5.1 sound.(im using toslink and 5.1 works when
    playing xbox 360 games).

    Also, i have 90% reception on most channels, however when im downloading
    sometimes or do stuff on the pc the picture pauses for a moment and corrupts
    but then continues working.

    Any ideas?

    Certainly if you are using your PCs network connection to download something
    that is going to cause network cogestion which of couse can easily cause
    delays in video going to the extender.
    Does everything work normally when watchng TV on your MCE system and you
    just have trouble with it when using your extender? If yes then it may be
    that the DVD Decoder chip in the XBOX does not handle 5.1 and I don't know
    if it does or not.

  4. If you are watching a TV show that has 6-channel AC-3 and your Xbox is
    configured for 5.1 output in the dashboard, it will pass-through all 6
    channels of the TV show's native AC-3 audio to your receiver via S/PDIF.
