Your Tuner might be faulty but before replacing it there's also 1 thing to be checked.
You need to bring your unit to repair to checked the band switch I.C. before replacing the tuner.
Tuner is divided into 3 bands (VL,VH,UHF) since you have no reception on the lower channels, it seems that your VL bands is faulty that might be cause by defective tuner or Band switch I.C. located near your tuner.
You need to connect the ariel to the vcr, then the vcr to the card, using a male/female fly lead. Then I suggest putting an origional film tape into the vcr, press play on the vcr and then scan in the channels on the card. It should pick up the vcr's output of the film that is playing.
first off lets try pluggin in something else into that port to see if it will recognize that. if it does then we know it is not the laptop that is in question but the software or device mangaer properites.
You may check Device Manager first to check if your TV tuner is still properly installed or still detected by your computer. For Windows XP - Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and check if the TV tuner is still there.
If you cannot see the TV tuner under Device Manager , unplug then replug your tuner and see if something will pop up under "Other Devices" (still under Device Manager). If it does, then you need to right click it and reinstall the driver. You can just download the driver/software over the net.
Now, if your computer does not detect it at all try another PC to test if the problem is with your PC or just the tuner.
I also had this problem. I had to go through the menu into the setup and then into tuner settings. There should be an option called tuner area. If you set it to area 1 it should start working. For some reason the sirius only works on area one. Hope that solces your problem
