I've been using Me-TV for a while now on a DTV2000H Card, and recently
set up the 3200H card as well, with a lot (and I mean a lot) of help
from Stephen. In my experience, you only really get this message when
the card is getting no reception. Other similar errors which relate to
accessing the card itself happen when another TV programme, such as Myth
is already loaded and locked onto the card.

I'm not sure radio works on these cards without a lot of effort and
stuffing around each and every time you want to use it. I've never
gotten the 2000H to work on radio, so didn't even bother with the 3200H
though.

As Stephen said, this card is a bit sensitive to firmware and drivers,
as the patch to allow this card is relatively new (days old).

cheers
