I just reinstalled Windows, and all of a sudden, I can't get a picture - I use he Diamond pvr550 and Snapstream 3.5 (latest ver.) I do get a bad pic. on channel 5.

Just for fun, I hooked the cable from my comp. right into the place where the cable normally goes from the cable box to the TV (so istead of going to the TV, it's going to my comp.) - perfect picture.

Unfortunately, I don't want it like that. In my normal settup, I lose the ability to watch premium channels, etc, but at least I can record one thing and watch another. I use a y splitter, so I'm getting cable before it goes through the box.

Any thoughts?

It's as if something changed and all of a sudden I need the box to get the picture.....
