Acer L5100 and TV Tuner

Following on from other posts, there are no instructions for this PC and setting up the TV tuner in Windows Media Centre is driving me mad.

Starting from Media Centre I am going to TV setup, it prompts me for region (which is UK) and then asks me for signal input, which is satellite set-top box and then ask me if all the remote control stuff is set up properly, which it is (I have tried the cable from the set-top box to the PC and get a signal on a normal TV at around 800mhz).

I then get to the signal detect screen in Media Centre and select start scanning, almost immediately it comes back and says no signal found. And that's where I am stumped, tried everyting. Ned it to scan up beyond 800mhz and then it will find the set-top box input but it doesn't scan long enough to find anything!

Any help would be most appreciated.

    I need help with how to connect my ATT Uverse cable service to my VAIO. I don't have a clue how to actually connect the cable(s?); but I keep getting the message that no reception is detected. I can download the ATT fiber optic TV guide with all of the correct stations listed, but there is only a grey screen whenever I try to bring in any of the 386 channels.



    Any clues for me?

Try normal arial first.
If OK, try freeview box again.
Check what tuner card you have fitted in Device Manager and check specs on google. Can it receive satellite freeview?
May be new drivers - check Tuner card website for driver updates and latest info.
reply back with what card is fitted.

How do I check the CPU cooling fan setting in the BIOS please ? I also understand my PC has a TV tuner - how do I access it please ?


On startup push F2 (or DEL or F12) to enter setup/bios.

As for the tv tuner, you'll need to connect Cable TV to it then use some software such as Windows Media Center, to view the channels.

No tuner error on sony media center


Hi

The problem must be either because of Hardware or software. You are saying that you already tried installing new drivers and softwares for the tuner card and checked, but its bad luck. So it seems the hardware device may be failed. So first ensure the hardware working properly by plugging tuner card into any of your friends system. If it works properly, then it must be surely software problem. We can try installing any other version of device drivers and softwares and make it work.

Goood luck.

Cant copy recorded tv


fixed thank you.when you install dvb-t tuner software DONT let it search for available channels dont set it up just install the operating program. then using windows media centre scan for available channels. i think there is a conflict of interest between the media centre program and the dvb-t stick program. mine is pinnacle studios.the stick needs to be in the usb on boot up to be recognised.this works a treat and thinking about it could be the cause of many windows media crashes when two tuners are competing for the same signal.

Used to watch tv through windows media centre on vista. Then moved my computer to another room, set it up the same way, now says there is no tv tuner?


If the TV tuner is USB, try shifting it to another USB port.

If the tuner is internal, turn off the PC, unplug the power cord from the wall, and open the PC. The card may have popped out of the PCI (or PCI express) slot when in transit. Then try again.
