Hi - I've been following this forum for quite a while and it has helped me tremendously when upgrading the OS to Win7 and the graphic card.

I never had use for the TV tuner card (no cable, no satellite, no OTA), but I have recently installed an OTA. But it turns out that WMC can't find the turner card. Win 7 says it's working 'properly', but I can't make it work. Has anyone faced this problem and found a solution? Or is my TV tuner card dead? If it is dead, what would be a good replacement card?

What tuner card are you using? Is it a digital tuner? Does it show up in Device Manager?

Definitely need more info.

1. What's the make and model of the tuner card?

2. Do you know if it's compatible with Windows 7 Media Center?

3. Did you install the latest drivers?

4. Did you run the Media Center TV signal setup?

5. If so, was it connected to an antenna when you ran setup?
