Hello...

I really watch Golf Channel on my PC using TV Tuner Card.

and I have AVerTV Combo PCIe & Win TV HVR-1800 with

Time Warner Cable w/Golf Channel.


When I scan channel it doesn't show Golf Channel w/both Tuner cards.


Is this cable matter? or I did something wrong?


When I live in LA w/same cable & same tuner card, I watched it, but

after moved Downey City and ordered new time warner cable, I can't.


Does anyone help with this matter? please teach me~~~


Thanks advanced

You can't tune encrypted digital cable channels with that tuner.


You were able to watch it before because it was in analog. Now that it is encrypted digital, you cannot. You'll need a STB/DVR from the cable company, a TivoHD, or a new $1200-$1500 CableCard PC.

No, as bfdtv pointed out, you'd need to get a CableCARD-enabled PC, if you want a computer for this; you can buy the UDCR receiver boxes on places like eBay, but unless you have the specially signed BIOS, you won't be able to use 'em (along with the right version of Vista, and the necessary OEM-only software). That's an expensive proposition.

If it has IEEE-1394/FireWire ports, you *may* be able to, depending on if the show in question was flagged with CCI 0x02 (copy once), and if the provider has enabled the port (there's a mandate that they're supposed to, but a fair number still don't anyway). There are threads in the HDTV Recorders forum about this sort of thing, including the software you'll need to actually make your machine appear to the set-top to be a D-VHS VCR so you can capture the stream.


If the above doesn't work, unfortunately you are out of luck. Sorry.
