My A 306 Tuner card is bad. I'd like to get a new one. I've had my machine for 3 months but the local store cannot just swap the card. It has to be sent to the Tech Center and this is a minimum three week ordeal. Why can't I just send in my old card and have a new one sent back to me?

Re: AVerMedia A306 TV Tuner Mini-Card
I think some computer store have a policy that they only change the items with included in there policy limitation. For example, if you need to return the item for refund. you need to return the item within 3 days after 3 days they charge you with 5% less on the amount of the item. and sometime for the defected item they only change it if the item is not more than 1 month only. Your computer bought 3 month already that's why they only received that but they send the item to the supplier for repair if repairable but if the item is totally defected that's the time that the supplier change the item. I hope my solution help you to understand the situation you have now.

wipe all tv related software from pc delete tv card entry from device manager and reeboot windows will find card and ask to install software again this should fix it if not card may be faulty should check card in another pc before trashing it.
Google for and use a free program called 'cpuz' to identify your system components. Also try using device manager to determine the manufacturer/serial of your TV tuner chip/card.
Once you have determined the type/serial, have a look on google again to see if there are any links for the specific driver. If not, you could always try http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/VistaDevices/Sony-TV-Tuner-Card-Driver/51593/Drivers.aspx Driver Detective.....even if you can't use it to download the driver (I think you have to pay), at least it will identify the one you need to focus on.
By the way, have you tried the device manager/right click on device/update driver/search online option yet??
Techguru2009: Seems you might have a conflict with your I/O. You need to reset the bios either by loading defaults or just remove the CMOS battery for ten minutes. After start the computer without the pci card. If all is well, then shutdown. insert the card in a different slot on the motherboard. Power up and the bios should recognize the update. Hope this helps.
Depending on the OS and Drivers, DirectX version I presume 9c, check your AverMedia TV card, in other slot PCI, and reinstall drivers, if required. Should work.
but, drivers, too for the Video Card, if Nvidia? download the latest.
This sounds like a poor put together pc.
If the DVD drive does not eject then either the dvd is faulty or the IDE cable and/or IDE1 connector on motherboard is not installed, try ejecting through my computer(right click on drive then Eject), if this works the button is faulty.
The same goes for the TV Tuner card, again possibly a corrupt or non installed driver, try re installing mother board drivers and card drivers.
This really needs to be returned as the pc is not fit for it's use.
