    Good Evening

    Is there a tuner emulator or other way to emulate one so I could mess with stuff that requires a tuner to be installed like the guide without having to install a physical tuner?




    Thanks for help

    You need a tv tuner to decode the television signal, this cannot be emulated.

    I have never come across one (a emulator) in the years I have been recording tv on my computers, as it would have saved me a shipload of money.

    There are television guides freely available on the web if you want to mess with them...

    I have found it a lot quicker and also cheaper to go and buy a hardware device, than ponder on the lack of similar hardware emulators...

    But are you really sure there is no software for Ubuntu or Suselinux?

    99% of the questions you have asked at PCHF have been with regard to virtual/simulation software.

    Can I ask why you want to run a setup in this manner please?

    As I said before, it's quicker and cheaper to buy a hardware tuner card than waste my time and / or other peoples loking for a option that is not going to work.

    Your question is in a Windows forum and not a Linux one, the same answer applies to that operating system.

    These are the TV Tuner Cards I have installed at the moment in two computers:

    I three PCI Compro T300's in one computer that record any thing up to 3 TS Mux streams (anything up to six channels)

    In the other computer I have a PCIe E650, and a PCI Compro T100 that catch anything else I need to record.

    This cannot be done with software emulation, even if it was possible...

    ...and Santa will also say "That it is quicker and cheaper for him to give the OP a hardware tv tuner, than waste the elves time looking for the impossible." :mrgreen:

    All I can suggest if you want to persist in this time wasting project, is to post this question in that thread...
