Windows Media Center doesn't always turn on TV tuner card

I am using my Pavilion notebook as a DVR by making use of the TV tuner card provided along with Windows Media Center. Lately, I've had occasions on which the computer starts at the time prescribed by Windows Media Center (I've had I on "hibernate" leading up to this but the TV tuner card doesn't turn on. This doesn't happen all of the time and I haven't been able to detect any commonalities in the times it fails to work. Does anyone know why this is sometimes happening and what I can do about it?

    The are no entries with a red ! anywhere near the time of the failures. The computer successfully wakes from hibernate by the timer in Windows Media Center (the computer wakes up on time but the TV tuner card doesn't switch-on - which is something that I believe should be commanded by Media Center). As a result, I don't think adding another piece of software will do the trick.

Intermittent problems can be difficult to nail down.

See if anything is failing in Event Viewer.

Click Start > go to My Computer , right click on it , go to Manage. Expand Event viewer and click on Applications.

These are sorted chronologically so look to see if there are any red ! around the time it is supposed to be recording.

If a particular app is failing to load or crashing, you can reinstall it and see if that does anything.

If not you can use a program to manually wake up the PC and execute the program. This is freeware program I found that has alot of options in it.

I intalled Tv tuner Card it some time detect channels and can't save automatic


Hey. that's the same card I have! :) The problem is with software, the primary one they provide isn't very good and confusing to use.
You have 3 (good) options for other software:
*Try using Honestech TVR (included in the same CD) *If you are using Windows 7, use the windows media center. It's very easy to setup and use. *You could also try the free AVS TV box software ( http://www.download3000.com/download_14768.html )

Windows Media Center can't detect a TV signal from a Sabrent card


If you have hd card, it might be your cable company not providing hd signal. If you have analog card, and have HD signal that will cause it too.

Xp media center says no ntsc tuner installed


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.

If you want to connect your TV and your desktop.
you need the AGP card or the TV tuner card. If you want the TV programs to be save then use a video capture card also.

Digital Transition


It's analog.  You need to purchase a digital receiver.  I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005.  Search Ebay for "ATSC usb".  There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive.  To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also.  You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.
