I have Windows 7 and have been using WMC for live TV. After about 2 months of smooth operation my channels stopped coming in all of the sudden. I opened the HomeRun prime software and rescanned for channels and only 20 random channels came in as opposed to about 150 (extended cable and HD channels through COX). The HomeRun software says 95% signals strength and 100% quality. The tuners are all recognized by Windows and WMC. I went and got a new CableCard and activated it, and I still have the same problem. The HD channels start at 1000 and the software scan stopped before it even reached 1000.
-Tuner stopped finding channels after 2 months
-Device and tuners recognized by Windows and WMC
-Strong signal (95%)
-Replace CableCard to no avail
-Channel scan doesnt even go to 1000 (where HD channels start)
I haven't reinstalled the tuner drivers yet. Any suggestions on where the breakdown is occurring? Thanks
By chance have you re-run the setup within WMC to see if you get the channels back? Even though the channels appear in the HD homerun setup/gui they may not match what shows up on WMC. Also within WMC there is an option to force channels to appear in the Settings-> TV -> Guide -> Edit Channels.
