MSI PC-TV Mega Sky 580 USB2 MSI Terrestrial DVB-T Windows XP Works fine, but unable to lock; when in use by app1 and app2 scans for free dev, both crashes

* "I have the same problem being unable to stream directly from my Hauppauge PVR 150 to the network. It looks like VLC tries to connect to a wrong output-pin of the "Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II Capture" filter called "Capture" (see log "trying pin Capture" ...). When building a filter graph using graphedit I use the output pin "656" and connect it to a filter called "Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II Encoder" which has an input pin called "656" and and MPEG output pin. This works fine in graphedit - I get MPEG video and audio this way."
