Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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.
