Question about ATI TV Wonder HD 600 PCI PC TV Tuner (TVW600PCI)

1 Answer

Media Center can't find digital TV channels for TV Wonder HD 600

I have a Power Spec Media Center Edition (XP 2005) computer with the MC Update Rollup 2 and SP3. I bought the ATI TV Wonder HD 600 PCI card to receive HD channels. Install seemed to go normally and the drivers appear in Device Manager as working properly. However, when Media Center tries to set up the HDTV channels (through an antenna), it first gets the Guide info, then scans the channels listed in the Guide, finds varying signal strengths from 1 to 4, but then doesn't stop, and instead goes back over the list and zeroes out all the signal strengths, and goes into an endless scan of the channels and never finds anything, even when I quit and restart Media Center or the computer. So I get no TV. By the way, I'm in Chicago and I'm using powered rabbit ears which work fine on our HDTV receiver.

Just to make sure, you do have analog tuners setup right?  Media Center 2005 requires analog tuners be working before digital tuners are allowed.

My windows media center 2005, can't install media?


if you have the OS installed then that tells me you need the sound card drivers. Go to this page:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Choose your operating system, then go underneath where it says audio and choose the one that says driver.

Download it and then install it and you should have sound then.

Many issues few solutions


Sounds like you have a real mess there that you can lose a lot of time trying to solve. I'd suggest saving all your files to another drive, and then reinstall the OS and only allow the system to update through the Windows update manager/web site, which should be able to match up the right update files. Do all this patching of the OS without installing any other hardware devices to keep it clear where things go wrong. Once the OS is patched completely, install new hardware and patch it separately watching for the tell-tale incompatibilities with XP/MCE2005. Especially watch for legacy devices that might not have modern drivers.

Hope this helps - good luck...
