HP Media Center 8124n TV PC

To have TV on the computer I need to run the Remote Sensor control cable near the satellite receiver downstairs. The cable is only about 10’. The receiver is about 60’ away.
Is there a wireless sensor on the market that I can use to have reception on the computer?

Code for connect windows media center to tv


Instead of trying to connect this to your TV via 8-digit code, you should try running an HDMI cord from your computer to the back of your TV. Quality of picture is better, and it streams flawlessly.

Tv tuner will ot detect digital signal in windows media center, vista


All US TV signals are now digital, but most TV tuners are like our old TVs - analog. Are you sure your tuner is a DTV tuner? If not, you will need to replace it or get a DTV converter. A DTV converter will not let your computer pick the channel and time though.

But one footnote. Broadcast digital TV is often not the same a cable digital TV. If you get a cable digital signal it is encrypted to the actual serial number of the receiving box. No broadcast DTV converter can do this. This is how the cable company now controls the number of receivers and one has to pay for EVERY set.

Get dish network to work with hp SR5505F COMPAQ PRESARIO COMPUTER


You can not change channels on Satellite with your TV tuner card. The satellite box decodes the sat signal (it is sent encrypted) you can run S-Video/RCA/HDMI depending on the video card input, but you will be required to change the channel on the Dish box. The TV card can only change channels on broadcast (over the air) channels, you can attach an antenna and it will use the NTSC tuner to change analog channels (if they are still available) and the ATSC tuner to change digital/HD broadcast channels. This card (from your description can ONLY deal with broadcast TV, You will need a TV card with a QAM tuner for unscrambled digital cable. There is no solution for directly interfacing with Satellite on a PC or Mac (DirectTV or Dish) the signal from the satellite is encrypted and requires (at least for DirectTV, a fairly complicated decryption setup to function, this is handled by the tuner box/card combination. Sorry your setup will not support changing the channel on the PC, you may be able to find some kind of software that can utilize an IR transmitter to change the channels on your satellite box, similar to the way a Tivo or other DVR can talk to cable boxes, but that is the best you will be able to do as far as channel changing.

I recently connected cable tv to my media center, but the remote doesnt work anymore. Do I have to reset it to make it work if I havent used it in a while. I changed the batteries first but it didnt help


if you have a camera mobile phone just place the remote transmitter(front side) before the lens switch on the camera and press anything in the remote if you could see any colored light flashing in it then the remote is working fine.If not try replacing the remote.
If your system comes withe separate drivers for the tuner then try reinstalling them it will help

Hi, Azrul here, from Malaysia. You can disable the sleep function for your HP Media Center m7250n before connecting to tv.

Go to control panel

then set your power options to never go to sleep at any settings.
