wiizkid: Thanks for the help. I have followed your instructions and sent zip of logs in just now. Please note, I am using a Hauppauge 1800 PCIe dual tuner. I also tried recording with the Hauppauge WinTV 7 Program that comes with the Win-TV card and it records in .ts fomat (MPEG-2 TS video) and it records fine and plays back the video using Media Player with working video and audio. I also tried converting a video recorded with Win 7 Media Center (.wtv) by right clicking and converting (via WTV converter) to .ms-dvr. THat video then plays fine audion and video with media player. I then see in Orb forum that Orb installs and uses Dscaler5 for MPEG-2 files (dvr-ms, mpg mpeg, etc.). http://support.orb.com/kb/print/321/
So it seems the Dscaler5 is not working from my Hauupauge 1800 card. WHat other OrbSupported codec works will with Orb that will work with Hauppauge 1800 audio (if that is the problem). Also, how do you change the Orb used codec? See below for Orb Default Dscaler5 for MPEG2:
The Dscaler5 FAQ states
Which capture card can I use ?
Almost any card (and that means A LOT) based of former Brooktree (now Conexant) chips including bt848/878/879 will work for video only. Why those ? These chips are easy to program (there has been A LOT of software based on those) and are very cheap. This means many manufacturers have (and are still) produced cards based on those chips.
Sound from the tuner is not always supported and adding this for a lot of cards is not a developement priority.
While we can't (and won't) claim "this card is the one you need", here are a few that have been sucessfully used by some users.
Zoltrix Genie TV http://www.zoltrix-int.com/products/vid ... XGENIE.htm
The WinTV series from Hauppage http://www.hauppage.com/html/products.htm

Take a look at the card list. This will never be complete so feel free to drop us an email reporting your experience with DScaler and your card. Also note that just because a card is on the list does not mean that it will work properly. Some features especially sound may not work correctly.
