    I'd be happy to test DVB-S as well.

    I currently use my GBPVR setup with two MVPs as front end as a DVB-S box replacement since my new house is not wired with antenna lines suitable for DVB-S. But there's CAT7 wiring everywhere.

    Almost there but with various issues to iron out. I'll PM you later if I have something else for you to try.

    The DVB-S tests have been holding up a new (bugfix) release for DVB-T so I'm probably going to do a public release and start a public Beta DVB-S testing thread in this forum.

    Watch this space (as they say).

    Cheers,

    I'm very interested in recording DVB-S radio in the UK (Freesat)

    Is this still alive?

    The plugin here http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Plugin/DVB-TRadio

    works with DVB-S as well as DVB-T? Or have I misunderstood?

    Currently only working with DVB-T but I'm working towards another version to include DVB-C and (hopefully) DVB-S.

    I had trouble getting DVB-S scanning working but sub agreed to include radio stations in the scan results of the latest version of GB-PVR - the next version of the DVB Radio plugin will use that information.

    I'll post an announcement when I have a Beta version available.

    Cheers,

    So, no more news on this?

    I have DVB-T & DVB-S and for some reason, one radio station I like is only on the sat service, and not Terrestrial.

    Currently, I have set up another capture source with the radio channels in it, and the program info shows in the guide, but because there is no video attched to it, the guide & OSD won't display in live TV.

    Cheers
