For example, over-the-air 7-day programme data is available in the UK for DVB-T services (Freeview, TopUp TV etc; DVB-T2 listings for Freeview HD are encrypted) and Freesat (DVB-S/S2).[f 8]
  4. ^ Elgato's contract with TitanTV for the US market expired in 2010. When it expired, TV Guide became the sole EPG provider for EyeTV in the United States. There, one year of TV Guide EPG service costs $19.95.[11][12]

  10. ^ Version 1.5.0 or higher required - only 'Copy Freely' support - No Encrypted 'Copy Once' support[13]
  11. ^ a b via aMPdroid app; requires WifiRemote and MpExtended plugins[14]

  13. ^ Support is limited to content broadcast as 'copy freely' (DRM Free)
  14. ^ Supports hardware-based CAMs supported by LinuxTV framework.
  15. ^ External third-party plug-in required, e.g. "tvwish", "MythMiner"; not supported.
  16. ^ Supports any tuner card supported by LinuxTV framework.
  17. ^ a b The official MythTV plugin MythWeb allows users to browse the programme guide, schedule recordings, manage media and playback video via a Flash-based player, which works on Android phones and tablets.[16]

  19. ^ Supported by 3rd party plugins: ComSkip and ShowAnalyzer
  20. ^ Windows Media Center supports two NTSC (Analog) tuners and two ATSC (Digital) tuners out of the box. Using additional tuners requires registry modifications. Windows 7 Media Center supports up to 4 tuners of each type out of the box, DVB-T, DVB-S, NTSC/PAL.
  21. ^ Windows Media Center supports CableCard when used on CableLabs certified OEM Hardware.[18] Windows 7 Media Center supports CableCard on any hardware that passes the Digital Cable Advisor tool in MCE.[19]
