Looking for some help here. Just upgraded a desktop PC from Vista to W7 Home Premium RTM (x64). TV was working fine on Vista Home Premium x64. I've got a SiliconDust HDHomeRun LAN-based tuner.
In W7 x64 Home Premium RTM, I'm getting no sound or picture on any channel via either the QuickTV application or in Media Center. Yikes! On the W7RTM desktop, if I switch the preview application to Windows Media Player, I can watch any channel by clicking View for that channel in the Setup App. It opens WMP and plays fine.
I did apply the 20091024 software and it updated the HDHomeRun firmware, so I'm on the latest software. It's supposedly 7 compatible; even the prior release was working on W7RC x64.
My W7RC x32 computer downstairs is playing TV fine from the same tuners so I don't think the problem is in the HomeRun box; also since I can see TV on the Desktop in WMP that rules out the box. Could it be I'm somehow missing a codec configuration? This is x64 which can be tweaky.
It's just QuickTV and Media player that aren't working. Just blank screens. Any help appreciated.
Sometimes, I see dead pixels...
