Finally got around to upgrading my machine, and I'm having no luck with my HVR-1600 card. Here's the specs:
WinTV v7 2.6d
Time Warner Cable (I have verified the signal on both coax lines going into the card with a portable CRT TV)
After setting the WinTV software up, it finds no Analog cable channels, though it does find quite a few Clear QAM channels. Several of those channels play perfectly in HD, and the ones that have some "blocky" issues might just be TW's fault.
If I program an analog channel manually and tune to it, I actually get good sound but the video is unwatchable. Its just a little bit off, like it needs to be fine-tuned. On Channel 12 (public access) you can actually see a picture but it is skewed at the top and the color is off. But that one channel is closes to being right.
How do I fix this? I'd have to assume that the board is supposed to fine-tune the channels on its own. I'm hoping it isn't shot; don't want to buy another board right now.
Appreciate any help.
