Revision as of 07:10, 11 October 2005

This is the overview for users. If you need more specific technical information take a look at the developers section (Supported DVB cards / DVB cards requiring definition).

DVB-S full-featured Cards

All these so called full-featured cards have the AV711x MPEG2 Decoder onboard. Please be sure to know their limitations before you are going to spend too much money for these cards. You need at least one of them in your VDR System unless you install the VDR Software Decoder Plugin. All other DVB programs don't have this limitation.

The more modern approach are the decoder-less cards listed below, every modern computer is able to decoder MPEG2 in software.

  • 4-5% of the Tuners need a lot of power and get really hot
  • a design-fault in the 5V power supply of the Tuners causes unstable SNR und STR, but there's a mod for that.
  • symbolrates > 8 MBaud can be used
