DVB-T

Some time ago I bought a Freecom USB DVB-T tuner. The software was terrible but it did the job. I've searched on and off for something better but failed. I did, however, find some different drivers for the tuner that supported BDA rather than WDM. I installed these and then went looking for software that supported them (the idea being that I'd have to find some different software if I wanted to carry on using the tuner).
A couple of days ago I was browsing around Sourceforge and stumbled across Media Portal. It completely outstrips the software that came with the tuner. It does everything I want it to do and it's written in C#. This, when I have the time, will allow me to study other people's code—something that's always beneficial when you're learning a new language.
