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.

Windows Media Center can't detect a TV signal from a Sabrent card


If you have hd card, it might be your cable company not providing hd signal. If you have analog card, and have HD signal that will cause it too.

Xp media center says no ntsc tuner installed


Okay, Media center does not work with some Wintv HVR's yet it will work with the software it came with and sometimes media center will use the wintv software to make it work but its sketchy. If you want a more media center compatiable card look at www.microsoft.com website they have a list of media center compatable Tv tuner cards, Trust me I am having the same problem with my tuner card now and its not wintv its a RCA and its under windows 7 this is just the thing here not all card work with media center.

It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.

Do you have tv tuners installed and setup properly? Media Center 2005 is just the software, the computer needs to have hardware tuners in it and hooked up to external antenna or cable.

TV Tuner for my HP


Hello Matt,

WISH YOU HAPPY MERRY CHIRSTMAS!!!!!!!!

I am Vikram Kumar Thumu from India- Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to the Tv Tuner card. Since, I work with HP as Technical Support I would like to suggest you on this issue.

Well, the "HP ExpressCard TV Tuner for Windows Vista
(RM436AA#ABA)" supports only for Windows Vista.... and it will not work with Windows XP.

If you are lookng for Windows XP Tv Tuner Card, I recommend you to purchase Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2 (EC557AA#ABA). As this one supports for Windows XP but needs Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 .

These are available solution for you at this moment . I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

If you need any other information please do mail me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com. I'll be glad to help you.

Once again WISH YOU HAPPY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks,
Bye...

KWorld ATSC 310U on Windows Vista 32bit Problems


Hi, the real problem here is VISTA, despite Microsofts hoopla this program is not as good as faithful old XP. The driver base is almost empty and a whole host of software and hardware just will not work with it. I reccomend you go back to XP until Microsoft releases a service pack with driver updates and then upgrade to VISTA. Regards mistyman

I am having problem with tv tuner card


i think your tv tuner is defective even if it is new, still factory defects can happen. try to install it in another computer, if you experience the same problem then it is defective. but have you checked your device status at device manager under sound, video and game controller. if you see a yellow apostrophe or a question mark it indicates that your tv tuner is havent been installed yet. try to double click the device and you'll see update driver then try to intall it by choosing automatically driver, be sure that the cd driver is inside your cd rom.
