Well, I know from experience, there are 2 things you need for tv tuner cards. the first thing, of course is a driver. the driver tells your computer how top operate the hardware (the card itself). The NEXT part is the APPLICATION. The App gives you the TV buttons and screens and functions to operate the tuner. If you have the driver installed, but no application, you wont be able to operate the card functions (the computer will SEE the card and say its ready, but youd have no access to it). If you have the APP but no driver, then Windows wont even know what the device IS, so it will not be operational. Make sure you have both the DRIVER and APP installed. Once you do, start the app, look for channel search, auto-add the channels, and you should be all set. Good Luck!

POWER ON LIGHT--OFF, TV SHOWS A NO SIGNAL WINDOW, POWER SUPPLY CONVERTER HAVING 5.3VOLTS AT THE EXIT


Hi Wiison,
Rain at all channels. I hope you must already have gone through the channel search process. Despite that if you do not get TV programmes, there is some problem with the tuner section. Either it is not getting proper operating voltage or the tuning voltage. May be the tuner itself has gone bad. For the tuner to select and receive channels there are certain requirements which must be fulfilled. Please check that area properly.
Good Luck.

Can a toshiba 28z07b be digitally tuned


Hi,
Your TV set has a 181 Channel Tuner and 100 Programme Positions..
Over the air signals (analog and digital) are free but require an special antennas for Digital reception and reception depends on your where you live and other factors.
Additionally Cable and satellite signals require you to connect a cable to your
TV tuner and a subscription and cable box for premium channels including Digital channels..
While all l TV tuners have the ability to receive over the air TV signals,
not all tuners can receive high definition (HD) signals. In North America, all
over-the-air TV is now broadcast in digital quality (ATSC).
ATSC is the over the air HDTV standard for North America and is currently available
in over 200 cities in the United States.

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

I would like to know if the Hitachi 51UWX20B television can be connected to the internet.


Your Hitachi 51UWX20B is an HDTV-Ready TV. No Digital Tuner. HDTV-Ready means that your TV set is capable of displaying analog and high-definition digital pictures, but without a digital tuner, it cannot receive the digital signal. An HDTV-Ready requires an external high-definition TV receiver (digital tuner) in order to receive HDTV signals. These external receivers can be called an HDTV Tuner, set-top-box, decoder or DTV Converter Box . So you will be required to purchase a converter box to receive over the air programming from an external antenna.

PC Sound Card Connection to Denon AVR-2805 or Samsung 40B610


  • Should I be connecting my pc sound card directly to the receiver or to the tv then to my receiver to get the best sound output? To your reciver
  • When I get the HD Digital Tuner, does that make any difference for the pc connection?
  • Try to connect everything that is sound onto your reciver then
  • connect all your video to your your TV for now
  • When you get your digital tuner connect all your inputs for video to(in order >reciever>HD Tuner>TV
  • Basicly everything goes to your tuner first.

Cannot swtich on the tv


I think you mean ' switch ' and ' only the red light ' ( power ) comes on.
It could be an internal trip on your tv set that needs looking at by a tv engineer ( normally parts required ) or if you have a tv with a ' factory settings button ' on it ( normally on the side or top if it's a flat screen tv ) press and hold for 10 seconds then the intial ' tv setup ' will appear on the screen ; after that, just follow the guide.
Hope this helps.

Windows Xp wont acknowledge Philips saa713xhl tv tuner card


The tv tuner card is either damaged or not connected properly if the pci slot was not used for a long time use blower to remove dirt from the board and try again
Some times the shops may have accidentally exchanged the cd so look at the card and try to find any related words number (version ) and then search in google it may work

Check the setup menu on your TV. Many models require that you choose between using the internal speakers and using the speaker outputs. Sometimes the TV menu choices are "FIXED" (audio output) or "VARIABLE" (internal speakers).

When TV warms up, the sound is scratchy and the image turns snowy, but everything works fine with the DVD player even when warm. the TV works fine when you just turn it on it just happens when it warms up...


You have already diagnosed the tuner as the problem,the first thing to check is the conections at the tuner specially the ground conections,the shell of the tuner is the ground and it conects to the chassis by being solder to it,if all conections check ok look for overheated areas.After that is taken care you still have the possibility of having a bad tuner.If you are familiar with tv service this information will help but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
