Unable to detect some local DTV channels

I have the hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600, and have been through DTV channel selection setup, more than once. I get good reception on many over-the-air channels (I have only antenna), but the tuner seems able to detect only the first DTV channels in a "family". For example, our local PBS station broadcasts multiple channels, but tis tuner recognizes only the first one (i.e., "9.1") but not the others (9.2, 9.3, etc). These other channels work fine on our HDTV and another PC tuner (by ATI) using exactly the same coax connection. What's wrong?

    I have been through the settings menu several times. There is nothing that seems to affect the outcome of the channel search/detection for the DTV channels, and no way to manually select the station.

Cannot change channel on my Dynex DX-L26-10a TV

Try checking the signal strength then run the scan again.
Checking the DTV signal strength
You can check the DTV signal strength to determine if you need to adjust your antenna or digital cable input. The higher the signal strength, the less likely you are to experience picture degradation.To check the DTV signal strength:
1.Press MENU. The on-screen menu opens.

2.Press < or > to highlight Channel, then press v. The Channel menu opens. The DTV signal strength is shown at the bottom of the menu.

3.Press EXIT to close the menu.

TV station 29-2 is not selectable on my HP IQ770

To solve the problem, Microsoft will have to update Windows VISA Media Player to scan for Digital TV Sub-channels. This may not happen now that Windows 7 is about to be released.

Vin tv-hvr-950 stream Dshow error unspecified error 0x80004005

I just bought a wintv hvr 1800 and when I started to record a program I would get the Dshow error unspecified error 0x80004005. I came across a forum that said to clean your system registry so that there are no errors/problems. I used the free trial of WinASO (which only lets you fix 10 errors at a time--I had 120 or so errors when I ran the first scan) and now I don't get the Dshow error any more. Hope this helps
