Question about Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600 - ATSC HDTV receiver / analog TV tuner / video input ad (1181)

1 Answer

No Channels I recently bought this product and I am very unclear how to use it. I've installed the device and the drivers and everything seems to be working alright. Then I had to scan for channels. I scanned using the format NTSC_M and it only found 2 channels. I live in Omaha, NE and I am using Cox Cable and just have the basic cable package and digital internet service. I know this device does not accept digital cable. So basically what I'm asking is does anybody know why I would only be getting two channels? If you need more information, I will do my best to provide it. Thanks.

Re: 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.

I just purchased a ge amplifier antenna for my magnavox tv and i am only receiving 1 channel and its very fuzzy

Your television has generally several receiving modes...such as video 1/2, cable, dvd , satellite, ext antennae. So make sure that it is set on external antennae. Then you will probably need to program in the stations that it is receiving again.. Meaning that ..before bought and installed this product your tv only recognized the channels with you need to run a new channel scan.. One last thing make sure vcr/dvd/tv button on any other devices you have is in the TV position..or if it is not make sure the signal amp is going into the input plug in the back of that device...rather than directly into the back of your tv... I think the combination of these things will solve your problem. good luck

No signal from Diamond VC500 Capture Device

I have a similar problem. Sometimes it works fine, but it will often have sound but no picture in the box. Other times, there is no input signal showing when I click on the gear wheel to adjust settings. There is no rhyme or reason to the missing picture. Whe I play it back, I do have the picture - usually.

Can not install the CameraMate ProPix EVE...

Here's an email address for tech support. I think you need to install the driver for the Cameramate.  I can send it to you if you like. From: "Techhelp4" <> Date: June 15, 2006 5:16:45 PM EDT To: <> Subject: CameraMate Drivers and Software Link
Hello Clay,   1) Please download and install the attached drivers for the device you have.   2) Double click on the attached file and extract it to a folder on your computer. It is important that you 
know where you are extracting the files to so that you can access them later.
3) Now connect the device to the computer.   4) Right click on My Computer and then go to properties.   5) Go to the device manager tab, if you are running Windows 2000 or XP then click on the hardware tab and then choose device manager.   6) Here you will find the Cameramate video device with a yellow ! or ? next to it, the device will appear as a odd symbol such as a "b" with a pi symbol next to it.   7) Double click on that device and go to the driver tab.   8) Click on the update driver button. This will open the hardware update wizard.   9) Make sure you select "no, not at this time" when the wizard asks if you want to 'connect to the internet to search for software'.  

10) Click Next. Now, choose 'install from a list or specific location'.   11) Click Next. Check 'search for the best drivers in these locations.   12) Uncheck 'search removable media'. Check 'include this location in the search'.   13) Now, browse to the folder to where you extracted the files to. Click next, and proceed with the installation.
14) To confirm just open device manager again and see if there are any more devices with yellow ! or? next to them. If there are then repeat the above process.     Part 2   We have recently released and posted the latest version of the software on our website. You may download the latest version  by clicking on the link below.  IF YOU CHOOSE TO UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE, DO NOT USE THE CD THAT CAME WITH YOUR PRODUCT.  IT WILL NO LONGER WORK. Thank you.  Either cut and paste to your browser or click on the link.   PPW-F543-8D28-F731-3446 for ProPix DVD

The TV picture is flashing

The problem seems to be due to Cyberlink PowerDirector. Most people suggests to remove it from the computer and use other capture programs. This, of course, does not explain the stuttering display of the TV channels on a Plug-and-Play LCD monitor.

1934 installation problem

I have no magic solutions for this problem, and I?m guessing you?ve already tried what I?m going to suggest, but if not maybe you should try that: 1. are you using a laptop? The card you?re using might be a Cardbus, which usually isn?t supported by laptops because of BIOS settings. 2. It might also be a driver problem. Disconnect the card, remove it, remove the drivers. Restart the computer and reinstall the drivers. Turn the computer off. Reconnect the card and only then turn the computer on again. Wait a few minutes (sometimes it takes a few minutes for the computer to recognize new software). I don?t know if it would work, but it?s worth giving a shot.
