Question about Linksys DMA 2100 Media Center Extender (DMA2100)

1 Answer

No Tuner hardware !

I've been trying to set this 2100 up for a couple of days now. I can get the computers to sync up with it and the TV that its hooked up to shows media center too. But when I try to use "LIVE TV" on either the computer (via wifi) or the TV (hardwire) its says "no tuner hardware"

I have HDMI cable and a "Red,White,Yellow" cable. I tried both, and either one seperately...nothing..can you help?

Everything else works...getting online with the media extender works with internet TV...but watching our Cable TV from the Media Center does not work.

    There are a number of reasons why you might receive the "no tuner hardware" message from Windows Vista Media Center. First, you must have one or more TV Tuners installed on your Windows Vista Media Center computer and each tuner must appear in the Device Manager window as a working device. Second, the television setup must be completed inside of the Media Center software on your computer. Third, the various Windows Media Center services must be running in the background.

    If I understand your post correctly, you are unable to view "Live TV" on your Windows Vista Media Center computer or the Linksys Media Center Extender. The Linksys Media Center Extender will not work until you can view "Live TV" on your Windows Vista Media Center computer as the Media Center Extender receives its signal from your Windows Vista Media Center computer. This leads me to believe that you have not met each of the three requirements listed above. Please reply with the specific make and model of the TV Tuner which is installed on your Windows Vista Media Center computer.

The PC must have a cable tuner card installed and connected to be able to record and show TV.
The extender uses the PC for showing the (recorded) TV.

Using Roku 3 with HDMI cable to stream to TV, is there a way to get an audio out signal (either from the TV or Roku box) to connect to an analog stereo receiver

Your tv should have a couple different audio out options, but you can not just plug in a wire and make it work. You will have to use your remote to go into your settings on the tv and select an external speaker before it will actually send the signals out.

you need to select the screen you can use because most of laptops don't support to use both screens(laptop screen & monitor / plasma tvs that have VGA port) at once.. you can select your screen by check on F function buttons on your keyboard can identify that button easily because it shows two screens on it just press that button you will choose the screen you can use.
