I'm just curious, have any of the PVR350 owners tried the PVR350 support? I anxious to know whether it is working for other people. *It certainly works on my development machine, but it is pretty tricky stuff and possibly could encounter problems on other versions of the Hauppauge drivers.

I have solutions for some of the potential problems, so let me know if you encounter any and we'll see what we can resolve.

I've said this in another thread, but just for continuity on this thread... I've tried the TV-out - it works fine, including showing the GUI which is great (I don't know of any other PVR app that does this for the PVR-350) - the only issue is the cropping of the display slightly.

I know this isn't a bug as such, but one thing I did notice was that the audio doesn't come out of the TV for music files - it comes out of the line-out of the PC - is it possible to redirect this as an option (some people will want it out the TV, some out of their hi-fi I imagine)

I dont think there is anything easy I can do about the MP3's etc playing through the PCs line-out. Unfortunately the PVR350 is only really geared up towards playing mpg movies.

I could definitly make it do it, but I'm struggling a bit for time at the moment. I've got a couple more interesting features on their way...

Hi Sub (do you prefer G.?)

Not that I think that you should do it before your other stuff (and also noting that I havn't tried it!) but,
I guess it should be possible just to set up a graph with the standard mictosfoft file source going through the mp3 decode to mp2 encode to the hardware docoder filter.
I don't know what that would do to the quality though.
