Windows 7: Digital Playback awesome Analog Playback sux

Digital Playback awesome Analog Playback sux

I just went from XP Media center to win 7 7100 Media center. My wintv HVR 950Q is working great, identifying all my channels. The digital and hd channels are coming in great, the analog channels look like crap and are very choppy. Typically when I try to watch an analog channel it takes a long time to start playing and once it does the buttons on the remote do nothing, it's kind of like crashed but still playing the channel.

Any advice appreciated! :)

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
WinTV 7 version 1.2 is now available from the Hauppage site -- this works pretty well on Windows 7 RTM (and X-64 as well) including analog - I use the analog composite input on an HVR 1110 (67XX) card as I plug the receiver of a Video sender into the card -- I transmit the signal from a SKY box to the TV card - works a treat -- remember to turn off Wireless on your router if the router is situated neer the Video receiver otherwise you'll get interference.

Windows Media Center has a problem in that you can't use Composite input unless you have some type of remote.

Anlog pictures can suffer a lot from interference caused by weather, other TV signals causing interference, electric cables etc etc.

Unless you are using composite video I wouldn't bother with the Analog channels any more -- in most W. European countries the analog TVsignal will be switched off by 2012 at the latest -- its already GONE in a lot of areas already.
