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.

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.

be sure you have installed the driver. If you are using windows 7 you still need to install the winTV driver. I know this because I had the same problem. It should work then. Just go to TV setting in the media center setup and it should scan for channels.
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.
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.
