    I started again and added the N- PVR shared directory.

    When I press the 4th Icon and then the HTML file and option 1 and 2 the program responds with "Request cannot be processed".

    If I browse to the share select the HTML file and select the second option the screen goes black for about 20 seconds and then the NPVR menus appear and I can select the recording and play with sound !!.

    Unfortunately the picture stutters.

    So the problem may be the time delay when selecting from the share and some type of rendering issue.

    It looks like you didn't follow the instructions correctly for installing the mvpmc share to the NMT setup completely. You were supposed to leave the sharename blank and let it default, instead you named it npvr. To fix this you can either remove the share from the NMT and readd it or edit the npvr.html file with a linux editor and change COOLMASTER:mvpmc to COOLMASTER:npvr

    Changing between the share method and the browser method requires resetting the box with a power off.

    The reason you are getting sound now is you probably powered off one or all of your HDMI devices causing a reset. The HDMI chain can be very fussy.

    NextPVR streams via http which is faster than through a share. This might solve the stuttering problem.

    Thanks Martin it is now working using the first menu option.

    Live TV is more or less perfect but still some stuttering playing back H264 recordings.

    A simpleton question, related to this thread
    I am thinking of this TBS DVB-T2 tuner card so as to get HD, but my output from the Popcorn A110s is on composite video rather than HDMI. Does this mean that I would lose either HD video or sound on the PCHs?. i could go to HDMI, but I have already got three HDMI devices on my HDMI input and don't really want any more

    I gave up on using the Popcorn A110 to play back the TS recordings with AAC HD sound produced using this card, and now stream to a Samsung Blu-ray player using Serviio .

    Please note the Samsung will not play back the HD recordings unless they are converted to MP4 HD files, I cut and convert using Videoredo.

    I also had to remove my Hauppauge DVB-T1 card from my PC before the TBS-6280 worked on dual card mode. However the TBS T2 card happily co-exists with my Hauppauge S2 card.

    The composite output should work but is it probably less hassle to use a HDMI auto switch.

    You won't lose any broacast sound that aren't losing today. Lossless audio requires HDMI, and AC3 requires digital audio passthrough. HE-AAC is downmixed to 2 channel PCM.

    On top of doing mp4 using VideoRedo will correct some major imperfections so I don't doubt it provides a better experience. I may be lucky that non of my NextPVR recordings require this. Serviio is really just a UPnP server and it doesn't add much to the mix.

    The reason for using Serviio is that it works well with both the Samsung blu-ray player and my bedroom Sony smart TV.

    The Samsung will not play HD TS files with AAC HD sound hence the reason for converting to MP4 also the time skip works on the MP4 files.
