O.K.

Time to test your grey-matter again.

SkyStar 2, Radeon 9600 XT with PAL TV out, SVHS (S-video) cable and 3.5mm jack to 2 x Phono (for the audio) all into my Sony TV (SVHS) input.

I can play back recorded .mpg files from my HDD with any app, but cannot watch 'live' satellite streams (just get black screen...)

Any ideas?

Played around with all the settings I can find, but get the same result with DVBViewer, MyTheater 2.76 and DVBMagic.

Tried switching off timeshift buffer, but it's just not having it.

... and I really wanted to watch the live footy lying on my bed too!!!

I remember having the same problems, could see the MyTheatre outer screen, but no picture. Unfortunately it was a while ago and cannot remember what I did to rectify the problem. Think i used the clone monitor in the Radeon menu to get it to work.
