Got a new Dell Studio 17 laptop with TV Tuner, but TV wont go

Dell 17" Studio laptop TV Tuner includes was an AVerTV Hybrid Nanoexpress DVBT, which the card simply slots into the 54mm Express card slot. The I connected the RF cable to the Express card, the galvanic isolater to the RF cable, then by coax to the outside TV aerial. I am in New Zealand. The system scans the available TV, but
keeps coming up with nothing found. What am I doing wrong?

    Is there an option for setting your location? Because different locations also have different frequency allocations for television.

If it is not finding channels, it could be a physical connection problem from the antenna or the antenna lead on the device.

I do not have windows 7, so can I still use the avertv hybrid volar max tv tuner kit for windows on a regular computer?


You can use this on a regular computer with a usb port. The product says its works with Windows 7 and my question would be, You have 7 installed on the computer right?

AS long as it has a usb port it can be used on a PC, I hope you find this very helpful

I have an avertv hybrid volar max for window7. I want to receive free tv on my pc. What other equipment i need?

You will require software for playing the TV through from your TV dongle. Try ArcSoft, they provide quite a few different programmes but normally the dongles come with software on a disc.

I have received what looks like to be everything required to get the builtin TV tuner operational. But it wont go. I am in NZ. Can you help me with a list of things to check?

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!
