  • What TV tuners ?

    I am in the process of gathering all my Car PC stuff and have come to the point
    of buying a TV tuner. Since I am Definetly using RR can you Guys that have succesfully embeded and used a TV card with RR please post your TV card models so I don't end up buying a card that does not operate with RR.


    Thanks you ALL in advance
    The road is long but we are getting there.

    my card

    hi, as soon as i saw what RR (and guino too) is able to do i bought a TV-FM tuner card. after a (not so) quick search on the web i decided to buy a Cinergy 600 TV: it's really good. good image quality, very fast program shift, very accurate frequency scanning, even for the FM tuner (that, moreover, has RDS so i can get rid of my radio in order to make place for something else...). For me this card works really well, but i think a Pinnacle or Avermedia works fine too....

    bye.

        Hi guys

        I will suggest AverMedia TV Studio 303, I bought it 3 weeks ago. The good news is that it has many features including that the software is skinnable and I already made my first Brushed Metal skin, yes the one from febreaza.

        I have just 1-2 hours of work and it will be erleased for you.

        It suports all the features of the software with prefered skin!!!

        As software it is very stable, quick between the channel change, supports timeswift, has PIP for playback and TV view, ... and very good tuner, but no RDS

        Cheers

        Michael

                    I just bought a Hauppauge (read: $149) win tv usb II pvr tv and fm tuner. How can I embed it into RR? I can control the tuner with my minikey, do I just need to assign keyboard keys to RR buttons? Any help is appreciated. I just want to see the tv in a RR skin with basic up and down channels or stations. Same thing for the FM tuner.

                      I am also looking for this... I would like:

                      - tv
                      - fm
                      - video input for camera
                      - no external power

                      Is this at all possible?!?!?! (EXTERNAL USB2 Please)

                      The Hauppauge seems to require power, and the one that doesnt require power doesnt do FM???

                      Also, do I need to use the line in for FM audio for all cards? I wanted just USB to the computer, so I can use my input for my microphone (before I upgrade my soundcard)...

                      Thanks!

                        To set up any TV Tuner in RR:

                        -Install the TV plugin -- see my site (scroll down on main page)
                        -Get a skin with TV support -- Brushmetal update does
                        -Go in winamp (Alone), press 'configure' on the TV input plugin, tell it to use "Thin Frame", and then tell it where to save presets and do a quick scan.
                        -Go in RRconfig and set the location of your TV presets, when RR starts the TV, it will load them up as channels and show you the TV feed.

                        To set up the radio:

                        -Install Radiator
                        -Configure it to work with your card
                        -Run RRconfig and set the location you installed Radiator, and set it to use Radiator.. when RR starts it will start radiator and let you scan/add presets to use with it.

                        I believe the hauppauge is well supported in Radiator.

                          Great, thanks!
                          The Hauppauge model I have does everything through the usb cable except it needs power (6vdc) so I just used a 2000ma cigarette adaptor set on 6v and I use the amp turn on from my m1-atx power supply to kick on a bosch relay which powers up the 6v adaptor, turns on my 5ch power amplifier, my alpine eq, and my power antenna (I have a override switch to put that down if im not using the tuner). I power up the audigy nx and the usb slim dvd player from the 5v output on the m1-atx. It's all getting dialed in daily.

                              OK. One more question

                              What type of antenna do you guys use and where do you mount it for good TV reception in the car.
                              The road is long but we are getting there.
