Question about Computers & Internet

I recently started using the new Comcast DTA and my desktop PC (Windows Media Center on Vista) to watch TV...media center recognizes Channel 3 as the tv signal but doesn't complete the configuration due to missing IR cables...any idea what's going on? My comcast cable worked fined with the PC...had no issues.

How to use in built TV tuner in lenovo y560 laptop


In windows 7 - Windows Media Center will use it (NOT media PLAYER, media CENTER)
media center is actually wicked cool for watching TV because if you have cable, no more waiting for the listings channel...it pulls up to 2 weeks of listings from your provider, so you can schedule shows to be recorded, record series etc...very cool!
