Question about Hauppauge WinTV Nova-t (909) Video Capture

WinTV-T-500 Pixelated screen.

When I start up my WinTV all is well until I go to view a channel. All the channels are pixelated and you can't make out anything. The sound is fine. This is a recent problem. I have disconnected everything to do with WinTV and reconnected/reinstaled WinTV from the disc and still it comes back pixelated. It all worked fine until last night. Can anyone help please

    I have the same problem. It was fine on Friday, when I last used it, and then this morning it was pixelated. Anyone have any idea?

Could be a Ram or Cpu issue. I had a similar problem with ocsasional pixelated picture & discovered my Ram was faulty ( due to overclocking). I replaced the Ram & that fixed the problem.
After another overclock attempt I started getting the same issue as before & realised this time that It was my Cpu causing the issue. By adding a little more voltage to my Cpu the problem was fixed.
This is just to illustrate that the Problem is likely to be a Ram or a Cpu issue, if all else fails. The tuners are heavilly reliant on Ram & Cpu, so any short falls in either can result in an imperfect picture.
Hope that helps...

Windows media center can not find ir receiver


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.

Tuning to pick up sky feed


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.

Capture of the Composite Video Channel


You won't like this solution but it's the best.
Wipe off Vista and install XP with all the MS updates.
Vista is a nightmare due to a lack of a well overdue service pack.
Also it works with mostly just newer software and T.V PCI cards will soon be a thing of the past. If you want to keep Vista, I suggest you go and buy yourself a USB digital receiver for around £40.
If you want to edit analog video try visiting http://www.pinnaclesys.com

Wintv stuttering when watch channel, but is fine when record 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.

No Channels


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.
