use wintv w/out actual hauppauge 950q usb tuner

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I bought the Hauppauge usb tuner card yesterday. I already have a tuner on my PC that works just the same come to find out. However, I get more channels using the small antenna that came with the Hauppauge tuner. I'm thinking of returning the whole USB tuner, keeping the wintv software installed on my PC, and just using Windows Media Center as my main software for it (and buying another antenna).

I kind of like the WinTV software though. Is it possible to use the tuner that came with my PC (NOT the Hauppauge tuner) WITH the WinTV software. Or do you actually have to use their tuner WITH their software?

Thanks in advance!

I think only the Hauppauge tuners work with WinTV. IMHO WMC blows away WinTV, but to each their own. I'm running WMC7, older versions may not be as good?
Tuner discussions for PC's are better answered in the HTPC forum.
