I do believe so. Mike was testing it and posted that it was working last night.

Mike what software program are you running? And did you need to add any codecs or is it basically using the ones in the program. And if so what video rendering are you using. Thank you !

I use Dvddream that you download on their website. I dont really understand the other stuff you are asking. I feed the dvddream from my laptop by hdmi to my TV.
When it records programs, it plays on VLC so I had to download that too. 4:2:2 doesn't play on my laptop when the tv is connected. It plays on the tv but not the laptop at the same time unless I disconnect the tv.
TBS Card, good laptop and dvddream has you all set.
16apsk feeds can play on the card too.
ABC works great. I watch CBS all the time and there are no problems with 4:2:2/MPEG 4.
You have to download the 5520SE drivers too from the TBS website.
Download the drivers, dvddream, and VLC.

In my experience its preferable to have LAV Codecs and you can render the video through VLC or MPC, I prefer MPC

Since the switch to 4:2:2 HEVC my old dual core 2.66Ghz is dropping frames.  My HTPC is quad core 2Ghz and it plays fine so that should give a bit of an idea what you'll need for CPU power.  I think the quad 2Ghz would be pretty close to the minimum required.  Any heavy action scenes and I'm seeing some cores hitting 90% or so.  Normally 60 - 70%.

I bought a used PC at a yard sale, it is a 3.3Ghz i3 intel CPU with 8 GB ram, windows 10, using DVB dream I have not had any issues playing the new HEVC 4.2.2 feeds.  My computer is not fast by today's standards, so if you even get a little faster used computer, you should be okay.

My tv computer plays it fine.  If I had not read about the change to HEVC here I probably would have not even noticed the difference. Just posting some reference info so people thinking of going to computer card set up have an idea of what will work. The more who post their success stories the better idea people will have about whether the computer they plan to use will have the power to get the job done.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
