I've had the same problem with two other unrelated HP input products in this area myself so I understand the pain. Media Center is not really well geared for nor is very friendly in the end user component input area. I'm assuming you've already tried playing a video file from your camcorder while setting up the Media Center input settings? Try a different software that will recognize your input card. Ideally, you should use any input software that came with the card itself from the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer for a link to the original software bundle if you can't find it from their website or you may need to research your own replacement software solution for this product.

It's analog. You need to purchase a digital receiver. I personally have a USB external digital tuner running in Media Center 2005. Search Ebay for "ATSC usb". There's a lot of different options and most of them are pretty inexpensive. To use a digital tuner in Media Center 2005, you have to leave the analog tuner / tuners in also. You should still be able to use your current remote control with the new digital tuner.
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.
