Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Is DVBViewer compatible with the Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD TV Tuner?

 

Can DVBViewer handle up to 4 different signals provided by Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD TV Tuner?

 

Many thanks,

 

Enrico

DVBViewer is compatible with Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD TV Tuner, but I did not understand what about handle up to 4 different signals provided by Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD TV Tuner.

 

Assuming that it might be possible to manage these 4 signals with a multiple installation of DVBViewer, can a multiple DVBViewer installation actually handle the signals coming from 4 different tuners of a single Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD TV Tuner card, as different DVBViewer instances "must not use the same device at one time" ?

 

Any other way to manage the 4 signals provided by the card with DVBViewer ?

 

Many thanks,

 

Enrico

A single DVBViewer instance can handle 4 (or even more) signal sources simultaneously, e.g. for TV in the main window, TV as picture in picture plus two recordings.

 

Performing Options -> Hardware -> Scan Devices will add four Hauppauge WinTV-quad HD tuners to the device list, that can be used for receiving channels on four different frequencies at the same time.

 

Channels on the same frequency only require one tuner. So you may even receive more than four channels at the same time, if some are located on the same frequency.

Would it be also possible to use 2 instances of DVBViewer in order to handle these 4 different signals for watching 4 different channels as well as watching 3 different channels and recording 1 channel?

 

I mean:

first DVBViewer instance : 2 channels using picture in picture feature

second DVBViewer instance : 2 channels using picture in picture feature

 

I ask just because I've read that different DVBViewer instances "must not use the same device at one time".

 

Thank you very much,

 

Enrico

I think so, but I'm not 100% sure because I don't know how the WinTV-quad HD  works in practice. It may depend on the driver.
