I cannot find any qam channels using aver media center or vmc with tv pack. VMC cannot auto find qam tuner and finds no channels after manually setting up qam tuner. Aver media center finds no channels after scan either.


I get all network channels plus a few other random stations with my tv's own qam tuner.


I have:


E7400

Gigabyte GA-E7AUM GeForce 9400

Vista 32


Any ideas?

Does your avermedia tuner have separat coax input for it's analog and for it's digtial tuner or does it have an internal splitter that splits the input to both tuners?

What are some to the QAM channel numbers that your TV's tuner is receiving?

For what it's worth: The AverTV Combo PCIe does have 2 input's -- the "TV" one is the analog tuner, the "Ant" one is for QAM. As Walford is insinuating, you must have signal fed to the "Ant" input for QAM to work. I have successfully tuned QAM in TV Pack 2008, SageTV, and BeyondTV with these cards.

I have the cable connected to "Ant," but no QAM. It's as if the qam tuner is just not working at all. Could I have the wrong drivers?...I am at a loss. Analog cable works fine if I connect the cable to "TV."


By the way, the card came with some kind of adapter, maybe to connect a power supply? Should I be using this?

No adapter needed...


For drivers -- go to ftp://ftp.aver.com/m780 (user=beta; password=betatest) for either .29 in that directory, or .30 in the BSOD_Fix directory. You could also download the QAM tool to test the card.

Thanks for the links.


I installed the drivers and the QAM tool. Scanned for QAM channels with QAM tool but still found no channels. Do I have a bad card? I can't think of anything else to try.

It's not going to find the channels, you need to go onto http://www.silicondust.com/hdhomerun/channels and see what "QAM256" channels are available in your area. Once you do that, you need to go into VMC, go into settings, tv, guide, edit channels and then in there select the ones that are available to you. Then click on each one and then choose "Edit Listings" and then you choose what the actual network name for your channel is and do that for all the ones you have selected.


Once that's done tell VMC to get the latest listings and you'll be golden.

Awesome, that worked. Now I just have to figure out how to get guide data. I name the channels, "ABC," "NBC," and so forth, but after updating the guide I have no guide data for the added channels. Any ideas.
