304w ago - The PlayTV use the DiBcom 7070P chipset and an USB interface but Windows don't recognize it, but you can force some Pinnacle Driver to work, you need only to modify the PCTVDIB.INF inside the Archive.

Very nice roberthunt87 and THANKS for sharing it with us. I will mention it in a Site News update tonight, and have also moved you to the PS3 Dev group for your contribution.

I've modded the Beta 64-bit drivers to work with the PlayTV too. I've only tested it on Windows 7 x64 but it should work fine under Vista x64 too.

Windows Media Center detects both tuners and works perfectly under Windows 7 x64 build 7000.

Same procedure as Gringo.

I tried installing the drivers tonight, and I'm able to stream DVB content through PlayTV using VLC ... but whenever I try setting up TV in media center it crashes and reports "Media Center stopped working".

Any one got any ideas on what the problem could be? Or an alternative to media center that might work ... something more usable than VLC?

Yes, it does support them both.
