So Cox in Phoenix has added a "Plus Package" that contains a handful of new HD channels. Apparently it is some sort of trial for MPEG-4/H.264 delivery, and you either need special hardware from them ("Trio"), or a capable CableCARD tuner to receive the channels.
Whenever I tune to one of these channels on my main HTPC (w/PCIe Ceton + Intel Video 2000) I get a black screen, but I can hear the audio of the program.
If I tune to these channels using an XBOX 360 extender they work fine (after installing a free "optional media pack" from Xbox Marketplace).
Any thoughts on how I can get them to work on my PC ? I assume the issue is with the Intel drivers, but I don't know for a fact. I'm also finding that registration isn't currently working for Intel's support forum to ask there ...
I've tried their latest driver (.2559) and the one prior (.2509 I believe) with the same results. I know one option would be to add a video card, but I'd like to avoid if possible.
The PC is a new build as follows:
DZ68DB (latest BIOS + chipset drivers)
Corsair XMS3 4x4gb
Ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe (latest firmware)
I also have a secondary PC in my office that has a Ceton (USB) attached and an NVidia GT430 with latest beta drivers installed. It tunes these channels with no problem.
Finally, and most people here probably already knew this, the Linksys extenders (e.g. DMA2200) cannot tune these at all.
