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!

Hi krishna kumar,

Did you recive any Insatllation disk which says TV tuner card?
To the best of my knowledge Tv tuner Card is inbuilt but not by Default,However in your case it is by Default offerd by Lenovo B300 Series .

Assuming that your Operating system is Windows 7,
Click on start in the search box type TV Tuner,you would see the setup file double click on it and click on Run.
Connect the cable and you would be ready to use it.

Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

How is the best way to be able to watch free to air television on my laptop?


The best way to watch live tvs on laptop requires the following.

1. Fast broadband connection.
2. Good configuration of laptop with a display good card.
This is in case you wish to watch live tv through internet.

Second option available to you is via tv tuner card. but that will make your laptop stuck to one location as through tv tuner card you cannot receive frequency via wifi.

The link below tells about watching television on laptop in deep alongwith mechanism involved.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Normally, a TV tuner device (card/USB) is required to be able to receive and therefore watch TV program(s) on any computer. What TV/Capture card is being used? Additionally, on what Operating System and is it cable TV or aerial antenna.

that IS NOT CORRECT! any tuner will save the images with the proper software most tuners will act just like a vcr but look around find a decent priced one and look at the features also consider getting a digital receiver! 2009 they pull the plug and stop tx of analog signals!

TV Turner Problem


The US uses a different broadcast standard than elsewhere in the world, and it is unlikely the tuner hardware will be able to receive signals properly outside of the USA. The tuner should work when plugged into a cable or satellite feed, though, I bet.

I doubt software can help this problem unless the tuner is using software defined tuning hardware, which is very rare.
