noob question, autodetect tv tuner+lan post installation?
« on: February 02, 2009, 12:29:38 pm »
hallo, im new to mce and have spent some time reading this forum over the last couple of days. but unable to find information to help me understand some current issues.

i managed to source a tv-card. first question is, is mce very specific on what cards it supports? e.g. i have a PlusTV All-in-one VS-DVBT-P1610, that anygood? I guess I will find out soon enough, hehe.

After reading about the 2nd lan card setup. I have added another Nic. Now my main question is, will mce detect the card and also the tv-card. or am i better off reinstall the whole OS to save myself messing about?

and lastly, as I have 2 nic's, what might be the easiest way to work out which will be eth0.

thanks in advance

Re-install is your best bet, with regards to your 2nd NIC.

It can be done manually, but it is cumbersome, so I suggest a reinstall.

For devices where device template exists, it makes sense to just re-run the Setup Wizard using an onscreen orbiter.
