Hauppauge Zubehr Win/TV DVBs CommonInterface-Modul


The new WinTV DVBs revision 2.1

Date: 29.04.2001

Since the television at the PC always pleased me, and I with the Pinnacle PCTV sat already a relatively good map had. However due to the missing DSP as Leistungsfresser, had an alternative had emerged. In the net the Hauppauge DVBs was always praised, therefore I bought this map.

As I the map unpacked the first fright, it looked completely differently than which in the InterNet am applied. At the most obvious one the missing loop Trough connection for the second receiver was otherwise whole, in addition, anders[Billy_Kid one ]. Me that was a new version of the map to be clear had, although on the packing and in the manual still with the old map one entered. That is however not further bad, since the functions of the map remained the same.

To the scope of supply, except the map is still another thin, but good manual in German language, a cable whip, a remote maintenance together with receiver and the drivers CD in the cardboard.

The installation of the map becomes quite simple, clean-puts, drivers installs, browsing accomplishes (takes about 10 minutes), completely.

To the program, the browsing successfully accomplished to expect one scarcely 600 radio and TV of programs in digital quality. The software can be served quite pedantically, then is arrange the transmitter list not possible. The program list is presented to one after Senderbouquets, which straight do not switch relieved to another program. This Bouquets arranges itself according to broadcasting station, e.g. RTL2 is with RTL World, N3 with the pool of broadcasting corporations, Sat 1 with Pro7.
Exactly the same is with the radiosendern.

The videotex is arrow fast, there makes stoebern fun.
To take up one cannot work on the programs in the MPEG2 format, can one her however. Since it is its own MPEG2 format, the transformation into the correct MPEG2 format is not however owing to a small Tools a problem. The in such a way provided Streams one can regard or on CD burn and at the domestic DVD Player look at either at the PC.

I did not try that likewise with this map possible DATA Brodcasting so far yet. It is to work however well, for example with Europe on-line one (costs approx. 30, DM additionally to the normal InterNet entrance).

The provided remote maintenance functions to Prima, although it does not shine by function variety.

The image quality depends outstanding, however strongly on the transmitter. SAT1 and Pro7 send the best picture. The system utilization is infinitesimal small opposite the Pinnacle PCTVsat. The map is to run allegedly also on systems "only" with Pentium 166 the processors is equipped. Consider this statement I convincing, since the picture in the window also not in smallest jerk ELT, if one lets other applications run parallel.

There are nevertheless two points of negative with the map. On the one hand the missing support of the software WinDVBLive (which will change surely). On the other hand the black edges (approx. 2cm) during the frame representation of the television program.

Result: All in all new version of the WINTV DVBs, even for achievement-weaker computers, succeeded throughout, suitably. Only point of criticism the weak software!
Nevertheless recommendable.

Digital TV pleasure at the PC
 

Date: 29.03.2002

After I with the cable receipt everything else as content was I a digital satellite plant bought. Since I wanted to take up in addition, at the PC television and also transmissions would like, I had looked for appropriate PC a map. My choice fell on the digital map of Hauppauge, which was to also create photographs in MPEG2 standard in real time apart from modern features and digital fitness. We go thus into the detail:


Scope of supply

The Hauppauge WinTV DVB s is called now also Nexus s map. Beside the WinTV map in PCI form one still another A/V cable, together with receiver, finds a remote maintenance transmitter manual (installation manual and reference manual lie also in German language forwards) and a software CD with drivers and TV applications.


Vorraussetzungen

As one to present knows is the wesendliche Vorrausetzung for the enterprise of this map a digital satellite plant. Universal the LNB should have therefore still another exit freely around it directly into the map to attach (LNB in). But in addition later more.

For the enterprise of the map as InterNet Broadband one needs then still another offerer for digital maps and additionally a modem or a ISDN equipment, so that one can send also the inquiries, because the maps can only receive and send no Requests. Since I do not have DSL can I about this function much say, do not seem myself according to my opinion also particularly to intersperse.

Your PC should have installed at least 233 MHz and a Microsoft operating system starting from Windows 98. A free PCI 2,1 card location is necessary and apart from the usual components such as diagram, AGP, IE 5,5+ naturally also massive fixed disks, if one liked to take up programs.


Installation

Completely importantly with the installation: The computer completely of the river take, with ATX housings is not sufficient it not, only the PC to switch off. I for safety's sake recommend the separation from the electric circuit.

The map is in a free PCI card location. The map is not small and comparable around some more largely than e.g. a small network map or ISDN map, but with a sound and a AGP map and might not provide actually not for problems with the place. However should not be to it the map directly into PCI Slot 1, because beside the AGP map it becomes direct probably both maps very warmly around the construction units, because the receiver of the map produces even enough self-warmth.

For a sound binding have their two possibilities. Either you attach the map via sound exit to an amplifier or the sound map or it attach the map internally in the housing at the sound map. I prefer latter possibility, then no additional cable confusion and modern sound maps develops offers there enough connection liberty. This connection is comparable as internal with the CDROM connection to the sound map, in order to hear audio CDs. I tested anyhow both CD in and auxin the entrance and as soon as the appropriate entrances into the mixer attitudes of the sound map one activated, also immediately the clay/tone was present.

End the conclusion must you only the Anntennenkabel into the LNB entrance of the DVB map put. Since one always an easy current flow (or whatever) feels, know you now, why the PC in any case should be switched off. Also into blessed USB there are times now times connections, which one should put in not during operation.

Completely importantly with it I would like to mention still another thing, which became a friend the calamity: Please uses no other digital receiver for further-sharpen or grind through the signal! The connection LNB - > digital receiver - > DVB s map led within fewer seconds to the death of the map and only with much luck got it these exchanged. Thus caution!


The first time...

I use Windows XP and the map, after I had attached the appropriate cables of everything, also as new hardware equipment was then found. CD I did not use the drivers of that however but other drivers from the InterNet, for it later with the result more. After I had indicated the path of the drivers, two new devices were installed. Two? Correctly, virtual network equipment is installed as well as the map and the Multimedia DEVICE are led. In principle it is also a TV map and a map for InterNet Downloads.

The drivers were then quickly installed and after I had installed the TV software, only once the disillusionment came: Completely as simply as with a similar map is unfortunately not it then. What is DISEqc 1,0, 2.0? One of several new features, which one understands not completely first (admitted also today not yet so completely). The first transmitters of browsings ran then also relatively briskly in the Nirwana. Thus still times manual to the rate pulled (ok I oute itself, I had really times to reread) and the error found. The LNB was apparent in the software not correctly adjusted and in such a way came it to incorrect inquiries in utopian frequency ranges.

After also this hurdle was overcome, then all television stations and radio programs were found correct and stored in the channel list. Finely finely, the first mechanism was created thereby.


Result

The Hauppauge WinTV DVB s map costs approx. 300 euro is thereby approx. 50-80 euro more expensively than identically constructed (!) variants of Technotrend and Siemens. But there is a remote maintenance and a used Hauppauge here quality whether however the amount of difference justifies must everyone for itself decide.

Very positively I would like to mention the picture and clay/tone quality! Should place the software to it not on RGB15/16 but on YUV as well as DirectX overlay, which should produce the best image quality and might represent no problems with today's diagram maps also.

It convinces the photograph function, one of the principal reasons, why I bought the map, me also. Thus I can take up a transmission in the background and these to Mpeg-2 standard on non removable disk am immediately stored. The quality is about to be called 1:1, anyhow sees my tired eyes thereby no difference. That becomes naturally also apparent in the size of the files, these is not to compare with AVI or VCD/SVCD fair MPG files. But one has finally the possibility of using late programs such as TMPGEnc in order to compress and also than VCD or SVCD store the video files more strongly. It is not completely so simple and also at the beginning much annoying exercise in demand, but later one can then its photographs into VCD files convert, on CD burn and at the DVD condition alone Player look at.

In addition one has the possibility of installing a CI (Common interface) for module on the map. Here it would be then possible to put premiere on suited CI modules and the PW map pushes in and already receives one also premiere. That can be done naturally also with other offerers and also with foreign programs. Everything a question of the correct Modules, the price and also the legality.

The map offers beside a digital sound exit also still another Composite exit, in order to feed e.g. directly a television with pictures. I did not test this option however.

Disappointed I was only from the drivers! I experienced the fact that the map is not only nearly identically constructed with the Fujitsu Siemens and Technotrend maps, also the drivers leaves itself problem-free to exchange. The Siemens driver were still older than my washing machine, therefore I had the Technotrend driver in the version 2.08 installed and since then give it also no more problems. Because so far it only the Hauppauge drivers is successful, my Windows XP system completely to freezes to bring! That created so far still no software, creates the Hauppauge driver this however in precarious regularity. By the use of the Technotrend drivers this problem does not arise now.

Who has thus a digital Satanlage and also at the PC television or even InterNet via satellite would like to have, to which I can recommend the map. Owing to the Mpeg-2 of decoder can do you also immediately films u.s.w. to real time take up and in a very good quality.

My Omi will be pleased

Date:05.10.2000

Recently a Sat dish bought? The old cable connection is suited probably nix more. Thus all Paletti, or? Perhaps not completely. If you used your computer before for the television and this over cables (with an outdated TV map), have they transacted now no more the joy, since no digital connection is present. And without the expenditure with the dish of my judgement is not worthwhile itself at all.

Here the Hauppauge WinTV DVB s ties. It is for the user, which its data from a Sattelit to receive to want and as troublefree as only possible their films to enjoy want. The radio signals or the famous videotex (who are likewise along also does not have it nowadays).
Also cable user do not come here into embarrassment. The map receives likewise similar signals, so that both forms are usable (digitally, similar).

There are however not always digital signals: Here it should be paid attention painfully to the fact that universal a LNB is in your Anloeage along also. With older devices this is always the case and it cannot thereby only the similar signals be transferred. This would not be in the sense of the TV map, since she is designed for this new range mainly.

The transmitters, which dispatch for the moment that from digital signals unterstuetzden can on the side http://www.hauppauge.de/pro_dvb1.htm are found.

On map is also video exit along also, to which with which one can store external devices, e.g. a television or a video recorder can be attached, the individual sequences of a film on video cassette, if one wants to preserve its non removable disk place. Because as take up taken up films (comes on the quality drauf on) in normally the case 1 GByte and more the hour admit.
In addition, the TV map created remedy here: Because with digital signals the data with MPEG 2 are passed on, which is a Standardvormat for videos at computers. If thus now a film is to be stored, one can do this in captivating dissolution too for instance a 1,6GByte/h. These can be worked on now with the provided software and schlisslich if desired also over the video exit to video cassette will transfer.

As is the case for earlier TV maps also the videotex with a wahnsinnnigen speed (reminds me on space ball) transfer, so that one gets now the sides directly indicated, if they are called. I find this function genuinly practically, since I look loving gladly in the videotex for new messages, which were not located yet in the newspaper. With the television ' can last this quite a long while, what with the computer the case is not.

The very best I naturally for the conclusion reserved yourself: The Broadband InterNet Technology can be used now * juhuuu *. for those, which do not know, what this is a short explanation. To be connected hereby it is the TV map possible with differently Providern in the InterNet to log in and over the Sattelit with the InterNet. This make a Downloadgeschwindigkeit possible of up to 400 kBit/s possible. Larger advantages bring only DSL with his 768kBit/s. Disadvantage here is however that for such an InterNet entrance must be paid properly again (for instance 30DM/Monat). Here my recommendation is nevertheless rather on DSL (at Telekom wenns is attainable)

The price of the map amounts to at present 600 DM, is thus also not for stingy PC users. For these still the Hauppauge Primio is best suitable, however it must be considered how here that this receipt does not make digital one possible!

Which one can naturally decode with gecrackten programs from the InterNet premiere digital, might be clear also everyone. But this is after strictest laws illegal and thus forbidden. I would not recommend anybody this illegal service to take up, since one, if one is gotten on very long Freiheitstrafe to count has.

Thus the map buys you to rather publishes and works on from own films. This makes not only for the user (thus me) fun, but also my Omi living in England, which is over-accumulated up for approximately one month with worked on videos.

Hope you thus hereby to have helped

The large battle of the gigabytes

Date: 27.03.2002

I bought I the WINTV DVB s satellite map of Hauppauge. And now three remote maintenance and the suitable devices are not in addition with me any more in enterprise. The television, that
Satellitenreciever (similar) and the video recorder,
everything with a purchase completely redundantly become.
My principal interest long however therein with this
digital Satkarte entlich once some films
from the Fersehen in digital quality instead of up
To store video tape recordings on normal CD blanks.
I must say the quality am real overwhelming.

The good piece I had ersteigert in on-line auction fresh from the factory for approx. 450, DM and I am the opinion more should you in no case spend, because that is already expensively genug.Es is worthwhile oneself really only if one consistently forwards has videos in digital quality to note. Need a map to only far to see give it also cheaper like Skystar and which of Technisat.

Conditions for system:

Midestens PC with Pentium processor 166MHz
Windows 95/98/ME, NT 4,0, 2000
Free PCI 2,1 card location
Sound map
CD ROM drive assembly
DirectDraw compatible PCI/AGP diagram map

Scope of supply:

WinTV DVB s PCI plug-in card Tv-out

Audio cable connection to the sound map
(the audio cable was missing in the packing!)

Infrared remote maintenance with signal receiver

with connection to the TV map.

A/V cable

Installation:

Zuersteinmal of all dead make.
One preferably puts the Pci plug-in card into the first Slot. It can be necessary that a Slotblech are broken out more muss.(Schraubendreher benutzen.)Karte to put and with a screw into the PC fasten. The coaxial cable from your Reciever and on the LN leg course that

Entrance in the audio gain control (task border) activate.
Ready? Computers restart.
The PC should now the hardware find in addition to put you provided CD Rome and their original Windows installation to CD Rome. Select as hardware driver the inf file in the general statement of the drivers CD.Ist the hardware installed can you immediately the Setup of the TV software startist both on their PC up easily should you the PC again start.
You should not have to have installed the software version 2.09 you the current update on www.hauppauge.de to download itself.

Software:

Do not start DVB TV & radio and the application to the Fersehen start are stored now unfortunately here then STILL NO TRANSMITTERS and you must in the menu with the Satschuessel after Ferseh, radio and data transmitters automatically look for let-leave to them that should you also the homepage the current transmitter list download and then with the menu with the file symbol import.
Unfortunately none functions the ORF transmitter, unfortunate for Oestereicher. All other transmitters, which know you from similar programs are also digitally represented. Unfortunately there are no MTV2, but give it to VIVA and VIVA 2. The maximum dissolution amounts to in the frame mode 800x600 of pixels. With the radiosendern I was disappointed something, because there are ONLY approx. 40-50 pieces and some Liebligssender such as n-Joy radio finds one not data services gives it here also, but I found still none, which its data spread free of charge over the satellite do.

In each case to the switched on program one gets the current and the following program angezeicht. The videotex Icon in the menu should to light up be able it the mouse-steered broadcast videotex decoder to the switched on program use that is then sow fast, because all read in videotex sides land in the buffer and can immediately read will-genuinly class!


InterNet by satellite:

I found still no guestigen offerer for InterNet by satellite and will probably never use this function of the TV map.

Digital video recorder:

Mainly I use the TV map for noting digital MPG 2 videofilmen from the television. The films are then stored with a data stream of up to 500 kilobyte per second in the so-called PVA format on non removable disk. Hour are then approx. 1.6 gigabyte you then in small Happen on CD blanks (730 MT) distribute. The quality of the films is me however the complex Portionierung of the films however always worth should one however respect that these films can be played then however only with software a DVD player such as PowerDVD or WinDVD 2000, which folds however also only then this PVA of films into the MPG2 format was if before converted.

http://members.aon.at/cinch/pvas2016.zip

PVAstrumento converts PVA files into the MPEG2-Format and removes transfer errors. Unfortunately there is no break function in the digital video recorder.

The clear advantage is now with me, I has more place in my room (television, video recorder, video cassettes, Reciever are away). Class Bildquaelitaet (no miserable Fischchen more in the picture.) Property now only a remote maintenance.

A disadvantage the higher current consumption and the fact might probably be that with strong non removable disk activity the announcement of the television picture has easily disturbed will up the photographs of video sequences a normal enterprise that
Non removable disks no effect (version 1.23).Bei photographs you should let no programs, which constantly read and write on the non removable disk run however, since the full achievement of the non removable disks is needed for the admission.

With version 2.09 and the hardware driver WinTV NEXUS
do not arise these disturbances. The menu of the version 2.09 is also very many more addressing than the version 1.23. Here also favorite lists can be provided and have on a view all favourite transmitters to the selection, reequip on the software version 2.09 are in any case advisable.
