Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Xbox and laptop

Hello,

I have a HP dv9334 (Vista Ultimate) with a Hauppauge Digital/Analoge TV tuner. Works great with my cable box and Media Center plus have to have a remote IR hooked up but still works great.

But, I'm stuck in a hotel room and want to play my Xbox 360 but the TV is locked down.

Is there a way to use the tuner card to input the Xbox signal? And, what software would present the signal in video form? The tuner card has both S and Composite cable capabilites.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

    Sorry, should have been clearer. I want the Xbox signal to play on my laptop screen. Is there a way? I was thinking about using a HDMI (from the Xbox) to DVI connector (the laptop) to input the signal. But, would rather use the tuner card if possible. Thanks.

    Well, the question is, how do I get the tv tuner card to recognize the xbox signal? Physically I can cable it to the card but how do I get it to recognize the signal and turn on? (since all I have to do with a tv signal is plug it in and it recognizeses it.) Thanks.

    RGB or comosite are your only other options provided that the Xbox supports the connections

I have a HP Media Center PC 470n. Is there another card just for that PC. I have the wintv- hvr 1600,not as happy as I thought I would be.


You can use any capture card you want as long as you have a slot on the mother board. Media Center works with almost every capture card.
Having said that, i found hauppauge a great capture device what was it you didnt like?

Adaptec AVC-3610 dual tuner only showing as single tuner in vista


To diagnose, try to make it work with a different computer. If it does not work, the problem is with your AVC-3610, else try uninstalling and reinstalling all the drivers and software that came with it.

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.

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...
