PVR/HVR/Tuner-Card Hauppauge Help/questions

by PhilipS88 / March 1, 2008 11:45 AM PST

I have a Hauppauge HVR (MCE-1800) which has been running smooth on Vista Ultimate/Media Center, and It's fine for all the Analog Channels, but now I want to run my Motorola Set-Top/Digital-Box into it, Will anyone tell me if this will work ? (it is somewhat of a hassle to get it out of its tight position just to find out it wont work)

It does say Analog on the TunerCard but I'm sure there must be someway to get it to work? if not, are there any cards (in northern America) that work and do Digital channels/cable?

Also one more thing, what is the difference between a HVR and a PVR?

Thanks alot everyone.

It works perfectly, took a few mins to set it up and a few more mins to learn how the IR thing worked.
