A rotor doesn't serve well for tuners used in DVRs, Chuck. ;)

Heads up, KGO engineer!

I'm not ready to drink the Kool-Aid either and I hear you about data caps, but I wonder if wireless won't actually be much less expensive to implement than fiber. I've been watching the crews...

CW_EPG (Cliff Watson EPG, named in memory of him, not written by him) can also be used to schedule one-off captures although it really shines for capturing series (e.g., Masterpiece).

Adding clarification (I hope) to SHF's reply, you can use MyHD to view in-progress recordings being captured by other tuners (including other MyHD units) but you cannot use a single MyHD unit to...

Dale, did you change the YPbPr check to the RGB one? That would cause MyHD to output VGA signals on that port, AIUI, while the YPbPr setting generates component video instead.

You don't mention if the BIOS is the latest version for that mobo. Other than that, I don't have any good suggestions, except to agree that W7 may work better.

Another easy test to see what's in the file would be to run it through (free) TSReader Lite, which would directly show how many of each type of packet it contains. The non-free, non-Lite version...

I just re-read your post about the suspend issue. If you have MyHD set to record in background, I'm not sure that the monitor actually should light up during a capture. However, moving the mouse or...

I was only focused on the lack of DVI output, not the mobo, and (my bad) I confused ATI (now AMD) and nVidia. If you're getting output from the daughterboard DVI it doesn't seem that you have the...

Update on theduke514's problem

It turned out that Pierre's difficulties stemmed from detritus somehow left in his Windows 10 "upgrade" installation. A clean Win10 installation resolved everything.
