I just had this same problem. Same mobo. Same vid chip. Same TV card.

I resolved the problem by correcting the AGP apature size (256Mb) in the system board BIOS settings.

You can use any capture card you want as long as you have a slot on the mother board. Media Center works with almost every capture card.
Having said that, i found hauppauge a great capture device what was it you didnt like?

You may not have enough computer power to run it. Try shutting down some running programs to see if that helps, if that doesn't do it you don't have enough computer power. Those takes a lot memory to run.

Okay, Media center does not work with some Wintv HVR's yet it will work with the software it came with and sometimes media center will use the wintv software to make it work but its sketchy. If you want a more media center compatiable card look at www.microsoft.com website they have a list of media center compatable Tv tuner cards, Trust me I am having the same problem with my tuner card now and its not wintv its a RCA and its under windows 7 this is just the thing here not all card work with media center.

be sure you have installed the driver. If you are using windows 7 you still need to install the winTV driver. I know this because I had the same problem. It should work then. Just go to TV setting in the media center setup and it should scan for channels.

How much Ram is there in your machine

If there is only 1gig then the machine will struggle to handle both Windows and video as Windows captures as much as it can when it starts

The more Ram the better

Go to www.crucial.com type in the details of your machine and it will tell you what the maximum amount of Ram it will take.

Go to www.belarc.com and download and run Belarc Advisor , that will tell you how much Ram is in your machine.

I also would look at the video card which has its own Ram built in and that smooths out the graphics as well

You will have to purchase a digital to analog TV recption converter. Here in Canada, they are about $100.00 dollars. I doubt if you want to pay that much, I wouldn't.

Basically what I can see from what I have read one had dual tuner capability and one is set up for PCI Express. Both look like great cards.

I have exactly the same problem with the very same equipment but I may have found a solution. Try scanning for DVB-T channels and you may find some success. I also recommend printing up the WinTV user manual and reading it. I'm not big on reading manuals but this one actually has a lot of useful info. I will try to fix my setup and let you know if it works. Today it is recording all 6 Star War episodes till 2 am plugged in through the set top box (can't interupt)

Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.

This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.

If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.

It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.

Scheduler window is cut off or to big to click on the Save or Cancel buttons? Please double check that your system display DPI settings are not over 96. Open the display properties of your system under control panel. Click on the settings tab and then advance. Look for DPI settings; make sure it's not over ninety-six. If it's over that bring it back to 96 and restart your computer.
