Re: WinTV-HVR-1600 Tuner card to DishNetwork receiver
Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.
This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.
If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.

You can use any capture card you want as long as you have a slot on the mother board. Media Center works with almost every capture card.
Having said that, i found hauppauge a great capture device what was it you didnt like?
Okay, Media center does not work with some Wintv HVR's yet it will work with the software it came with and sometimes media center will use the wintv software to make it work but its sketchy. If you want a more media center compatiable card look at www.microsoft.com website they have a list of media center compatable Tv tuner cards, Trust me I am having the same problem with my tuner card now and its not wintv its a RCA and its under windows 7 this is just the thing here not all card work with media center.

I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600. I have a comcast digital box hooked up to my PC. Signal is bad and black and white media. I installed the "current" driver two weeks ago (mid October) Work great! We had to perform a PC recovery. I downloaded the "current" driver. Got weak signal and black and white only.
There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.
Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.
If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.
If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.
And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.
Further update: Have downloaded SageTV, and it works fine with the Hauppage card. Is definitely a software problem. Have also tried total uninstall, reinstall, with same results. Also downloaded GBPVR, and it also worked with the card.
