No channels after scanning analog cable on Hauppauge 1600
I don't have a cable box. The cable goes directly into a cable-ready TV. So there's no need to use channel 3 or 4 as an RF source on my Hauppauge 1600, right? I've scanned in both cable & Cable HRC modes with no results. I've tested the cable line & it's OK. I've checked to see if I plugged into the correct input on the PCI board, that's OK--So what goes??? is there a setting I've missed?
Athlon 64 3200+, windows xp Service Pack 2 Thanks in advance!
Re: no channels after scanning analog cable on Hauppauge...
I have exactly the same problem with the very same equipment but I may have found a solution. Try scanning for DVB-T channels and you may find some success. I also recommend printing up the WinTV user manual and reading it. I'm not big on reading manuals but this one actually has a lot of useful info. I will try to fix my setup and let you know if it works. Today it is recording all 6 Star War episodes till 2 am plugged in through the set top box (can't interupt)

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.
Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.
This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.
If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.
I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600. I have a comcast digital box hooked up to my PC. Signal is bad and black and white media. I installed the "current" driver two weeks ago (mid October) Work great! We had to perform a PC recovery. I downloaded the "current" driver. Got weak signal and black and white only.
Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.
you are not going to get anything once you disconnected from the provider. It is the same thing as just pull the cable from the wall.
you can get TV signal (normal basic-brocasted) by using the roof top antenna, I don't know what kind of antenna will be require after 2/09. when the TV broadcast change to digital signal. but in the mean time, you need a converter box from analog to digital for the TV.
Nobody want to pay the monthly fee. if you have the equipment, you can set up the receiving station from the satellite. then you don't have to pay anything. As far as I know, no body have such equipment. cable company spend millions of dollars to set them up, so you have to pay for it.
Further update: Have downloaded SageTV, and it works fine with the Hauppage card. Is definitely a software problem. Have also tried total uninstall, reinstall, with same results. Also downloaded GBPVR, and it also worked with the card.
First check to make sure your coax cable is in the correct slot, (Make sure it is plugged into the outside port). The other port on there is the ATSC antenna which would only be useful for over the air broadcasts if your area has them (I believe Omaha, NE would be able to get KETV over the air)and if you have an applicable antenna.
You are using the proper format (NTSC_M), if you are using the WinTV application, on the upper left side of the screen you will see your channel up/down buttons, in-between them is an addition button for video source, try changing this to see if you are able to scan more channels. My initial reaction is that you are using the ATSC tuner for scanning the channels.
I will check back frequently to check for more information for you.
