Switch over and PC-based systems

Here is what to do
Windows Media Center on VistaI installed these patches on my Vista 32 bit installation and it installed all the new DVB-T subsystem and the MHEG-5 software. Right, basically, for 32 bit version, install:
- Windows6.0 patch (KB950754) and then
- Windows6.0 patch (KB951685) and then
- MediaCenterTVPack2008 (KB953272) and then
- MCETVPack-Windows6.0 (KB956147)
Download and install these in this order, and then reboot, run Windows Update
Then when you start Media Center it will automatically detect the tuners you have and the type they are and start the Freeview scan. It will allocate all the channels correctly from the broadcast DVB-T, you don't need to choose a transmitter or anything.
And it remembers your postcode from last time!!!!

Also I have Hauppage PC TV Tuner card upstairs. havent upgraded the software in 3 years, so went to hauppage.com and did so (WinTV 7 CD V1.1d)
Hauppage forum is excellent. Their moderator Mr X seems to be on duty 24/7 and very helpful Hauppauge UK Forum - Powered by vBulletin
Anyone with diff PC cards check your m'fr sites and any forums as appropriate.
I am all sorted now. Exmouth EX8 here.
Have fun all
