I have a new HTPC setup and I am now very confused. Here is what I got:
Vista Ultimate, Avermedia A180, Direct TV H20 HD receiver. I connected my direct TV receiver's SVideo output to the S video input on the Avermedia
A180. When I go to media center setup, Vista looks for over the air channels and does not see the TV signal on the S Video input of the tuner. Why so? I understand, my direct tv box is a tuner, but how can I get the signal out from the satellite box into my media pc box? I even tried getting the signals using RCA connection of the set up box and the tuner card, but even that does not work. I do not see any option to change the TV signal input on Vista Ultimate.
I also understand that I will need IR blaster to change channels on the set up box, but first can some one help me get the tv signal into my media pc box?
