    Thumbs up

    Firstly let me say congrats on an excellent peice of software, bought myself an MVP a few days ago and was just looking to re-skin the app and then stumbled accross GB-PVR (WOW! I was very impressed).

    Ok on to my first problem.
    When using the Video Library tab, it correctly opens the directory where videos are stored and lists movie folders. Upon Selecting a folder on the MVP I do not see the movie listed ony the PREVIOUS DIRECTORY icon is shown, yet if I try the same on the GBPVR PC client it works fine, any ideas why this may be ?

    Second Question,
    I would really like to get the LiveTV/Recording functionality working. I do not have a TV tuner card in my machine I use the video in on my GF4 graphics card, this combined with Virtual VCR allows me to record whatever station I'm watching on my cable box.
    Is there anyway to make GBPVR support this input as all I would need to purchase is an IRblaster to change the channel on the cable box. If this is not possible what about a cheap TV tuner card ? dont understand why i would kneed to buy an expensive PVR card.

    many thanks. lee.

    What type of video file was it? AVI files are not playable on the MVP, so are filtered out on the GB-PVR MVP client.

    Sorry GB-PVR doesn't support these older software encoder cards. It would be too much work to also support these types of cards. I'm trying to focus on supporting just the hardware encoder cards (which is where the future is), and think I'd be stretched too thin also trying to support these software encoder cards.
