Default Any DVico DTV card owners out there?

Hi there,

I have both the DVico Dual Digital PCI card & the USB DTV units & although they produce great quality I'm not terribly impressed by the stability of the software or its ability in producing reliably working *.mpg files 100% of the time.

I find that the dvico software crashes very often on cleanly installed XPsp1 or sp2 OS's.
And at least 30% of the time the output is completely screwed: ie it either doesn't play at all on windows media player (& only on proper DVD software like PowerDVD), or stupid problems like you can't seek through the file.
Another problem I just recently figured out is that none of them can be converted properly by mpeg4 converters such as FlaskMPEG or others.
The video & audio play the every 2 seconds it slows down then normal speed then slows down, etc, etc.

Anyone else having these problems with their DVico cards also?
Love to hear from ya.
Any suggestions other than buying a different brand unit?

don't have a dvico but dvb-t cards are essentially the same. ensure you're using latest drivers & software. since your card has BDA drivers available, you could try progDVB or Webscheduler and see if you like them better.

doesn't play at all on windows media player
probably using a crappy splitter, consider using media player classic instead, internal mpeg ps/ts splitter should be sufficient. i myself prefer elecard's though.

flaskmpeg is horribly outdated. try something like autogk. for streams that have issues, run them through ProjectX first

also should mention you may have reception/interference issues if you're experiencing frequent breakups/pixellation
