Default trouble with dell angel tv tuner

i don't know if this should be here or the hardware section, but we'll see how it goes...

i decided to hook up my usb tv tuner again and record some shows, but i got a decoder error when i tried to watch TV in MCE2005

i read some on the dell forums and they said to install powerdvd.

i installed it, and now it works just fine. i am confused why the dell drivers don't work for the device, and why i have to install a third party program to get the thing to work.

i was wondering if there were any free alternatives to powerdvd, so i can keep it working after the 30 trial is up?


EDIT- I found the full version for free on the dell support page. This thread can be deleted.
