What exactly is MediaPortal? Did you download it from a site, or was it commercial software? Show me their site, and I'll look into it.

It's an Open Source Media Center Alike for PC's that don't have Media Center, just google it.

Do you have the Updated Version? (Download Page )

I've also taken a peek at the requirements:

Minimum System Requirements:

* CPU: 1.4 GHz or higher / 2.8 Ghz for analog software tv-cards
* Memory: 256MB RAM
* Harddisk: ~200 MB for MediaPortal
* VGA: DX9 compatible videocard with at least 64MB of video memory
* TV-Cards: See the following page for the latest supported TV cards

* Notes: Media Portal currently records live Tv to a DVR-MS file which generates a file size of approximately 3GB (3072MB) per hour. So a typical 2 hour movie will create a file which is about 6GB (6144MB) in size. For that reason, a 100GB Hard Disk would give you enough space to record multiple shows over 2 weeks without having to delete or compress them. See this page for an accurate supported TV card listing

----------------------------------

What OS are you on? There's quite a few computers that can't run that, heck, I can't run that!

EDIT: Do you have all of this?

# Windows XP SP2: With WindowsXP you are able to use MediaPortal with one DVB TVCard or multiple Analog TVCards.
# Windows MCE 2005 RU2: With Windows MCE you are able to use MediaPortal with more than 1 DVB TV Card!
# Install SP2 and all WindowsUpdates
# Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 with SP1 and Microsoft .NET Framework 2
# DirectX 9.0c
# Windows Media Player 10
# WindowsXP SP2 Hotfix for DVB
# Windows SP2 Hotfix for 1394 (Firewire)

------------------------

If you do, and you meet the requirements, you may have an outdated DirectX or too old a Media Player without knowing it. Both can be downloaded at Microsoft's Website.

Likewise, the updates can be downloaded from microsoft.com. If you have a Graphics Card that can support that, it most likely has the TV-Card ability. Is there an S-Video output from the card?
