Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G PC Desktop
I have the Sony VAIO VGC-RB42 and recently installed the BFG 9800GTX+. This card covers my middle PCI slot so I had to move my TV tuner card to the lower PCI slot. Everything seemed to run fine until I tried to record/ watch TV. The computer doesnt even recognise that the TV tuner card is installed. I have removed and replaced the card several times, I removed the video card and replaced it with the old one, leaving the tuner in the same bottom slot and still nothing works. Is there a reason why the bottom slot will not run the tuner? Is there a workaround?
I am not an expert, but have lots of experience with my own media center. by moving the tuner card you changed the address of it which if the os does not recognize new hardware, it will not install the drivers for it. i believe you will have to use the device manager to reinstall the drivers for the tuner card. also will have to redo the setup for the tuner in media center. another problem with the softare change is you have to update the security components to be able to view certain channels.
you can find the best information for all these subjects at your computer manufacturers support website and of course microsoft for the security components. good luck, it should not be too difficult to solve your delemna with a little research and searching there.
