When i go to windows media center > setup tv > i get a message that says i don't have a tv tuner hardware installed. I tried to reinstall it and redo the setup disc that came with the hardware, but still doesn't work. Not sure what to do next.
In my case, the Service called "Windows Media Center Receiver Service" was not in Local System Account, so I changed that as stated in the instructions and problem resolved !! btw, the instructions say that you have to reboot after the change is made, but you can try to start it manually (in the General tab). That worked for me.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

Try going into uninstall programs and find media center.
Highlight media center and click on repair.
See if this helps.
Your might also look in your device manager thats located in your control panel and see if there are any problems there.
go into the drvice manager
right click and select scan for hardware changes
this should popup the tv tuner and automatically install the drivers..
If that fails
turn off the system
remove the tuner card
boot the system and using the device manager scan for hard ware changes
replace the tvtuner
restatr and in the device manager scan for hard ware changes again
Also in Mce insure you have the correct imaging device and tuner device selected, this will be located in the setup options
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.
