Sweet i think lots of people are getting happy with this version.
Can't try it here (don't have an analog signal) but will tell our customers that it can be done from now on.

Hi DVBL Team,

I'm have a ASUS P7131 BDA Analog tuner with me which at the moment works nicely with DVBLink AnalogTV beta for all analog channels. Till ATV release, i have tried with TVSource many times to get this working but TVSource doesnt detect the card probably due to it being an analog card.

However this tuner does support Set-top-boxes via certified IR blasters and works beautifully with WMC. Is there any way to get this to work with a set-top-box via Analog TV?

Not at the moment. For the first release version we will not support controlling STB with analog tuner card. But this may change in the future.

Not really, my Terratec H5 tuner doesnt allow me to switch between analog and digital cable, it hangs.

Anyway, the bda.dev is still not fixed in DVBlink 4.5, I still have to use the 4.01 version to watch cable TV.

With DVBlink it is often "new features" with "old bugs". :(

DVBLink AnalogTV is a standalone product and requires its own tuner. It assumes the full control over the tuner and does not share it with anyone else, including tvsource. However you can still use TVSource along the AnalogTV tuners if that was the question.
