Hi

TV tuner cards allow you to view programming on a computer system. Although desktop computers allow you to install internal TV tuner cards, laptop systems do not have the available space for internal cards. Because of this, laptop computers have PCI express card slots. This slot allows you to install and remove (at your will) additional hardware, such as TV tuner cards.

  • TV tuner card
  • Driver installation CD
  • Software installation


  1. Locate the PCI express card slot (located on the side of your computer opposite the disc drive). Push in on the protective cover on the slot to unlock it from the case. It pops out slightly, allowing you to remove the card.
  2. Slide in the TV tuner into the PCI express card slot. The card clicks into place and a light blinks on when the card has connected successfully to the laptop computer.
  3. Insert the driver installation CD into the disc drive of the computer. Momentarily a driver installation wizard appears on the screen. Click "Next" on the welcome page, then accept the given license agreement. Choose "Next" two more times, then select "Install" and the drivers from the driver installation CD install onto the computer.
  4. Eject the driver installation CD and insert the software installation CD. This is the program you use to view the connected receiver. As with the driver installation CD, wait for the installation wizard to load up onto the screen. Accept the license agreement, leave the installation name and location blank, then click "Install" to install the software.
  5. Restart the computer. Upon restart the laptop is ready to begin using the TV tuner card.

Hi krishna kumar,

Did you recive any Insatllation disk which says TV tuner card?
To the best of my knowledge Tv tuner Card is inbuilt but not by Default,However in your case it is by Default offerd by Lenovo B300 Series .

Assuming that your Operating system is Windows 7,
Click on start in the search box type TV Tuner,you would see the setup file double click on it and click on Run.
Connect the cable and you would be ready to use it.

Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

MY TV TUNER IS NOT WORKING.EVERY TIME I CLICK MYGIC TV LOGO ON MY LAPTOP SCREEN.A PROMPT APPEARS 'INITIALIZED TV CARD FAILED'. WHAT DO I DO?PLZ HELP ME.I M SO STUCK.


Unplug the tuner and then uninstal the software using control panel add/remove. Then reboot a couple of times to make sure all is cleaned out. Then reinstall the software drivers and try the tuner.

Unfortunetly you only have a couple of things that go wrong here one is the drivers becomign corrupted or changed or the hardware itself has failed.

Hard disk crashed


Who made the laptop? Go to their site, navigate to their support pages and use the serial number of your laptop to find the original configuration. Run down the list to find the tv tuner and download the driver and save it to your desktop. Install it and you should be fine. Alternately, use the driver/application cd that came with the machine. That is unless it was on a partition of the old hard drive.

TV Tuner express card 54 DVB-T Medion


Hi,
you need to install/re-install the drivers for the expresscard, should be downloadable from medion. Also check in control-panel that the device is there. If you look in My Computer/control Panel/System/Device Manager and the device is listed, with a yellow exclamation mark. try removing/uninstalling. or physically remove from the computer, re-install and go through the new hardware wizard to set it up.

Problem with media direct in dell laptop


Hi,

Please note that your system does not have a Tv tuner. Tv tuner is not an inbuilt device that comes with the laptop by default. It is an external device. I have never heard of any company shipping out systems with inbuilt Tv tuner. Most of the Tv tuners use USB port. So, you can purchase a Tv tuner and use it with your system. To check the price etc, you can simply search in google.

Please do not forget to rate the solution.

Regards,
Musheer.

that IS NOT CORRECT! any tuner will save the images with the proper software most tuners will act just like a vcr but look around find a decent priced one and look at the features also consider getting a digital receiver! 2009 they pull the plug and stop tx of analog signals!
