Hauppauge Colossus PCI Express Internal HD-PVR


I’ve taken a bit of time off from doing coding @ home to take the WM7 to the next level. This has been done by installing one of the cards mentioned in the title.

Well it appears to work, and the comments made by Marvin-Miller on Amazon.com [http://www.amazon.com/Hauppauge-Colossus-Express-Internal-HD-PVR/dp/B004OVE2B4/ref=cm_aya_orig_subj] are bang on.

One difficulty I had, was with the channel switching of 1->5 which needed to be recoded to be 101->105 for the stb to use. This can be done by editing a file that is used in the WM7 channel scan process.

The only issue now, is with the audio levelling of some channels and the adverts. I suspect 5.1 to “2 CH stereo”  switching is causing some hiccup somewhere.
