  • sstgwt1 Aug 12, 2008

    digial....I am getting maybe 4 of the listed 15. Shouldn't I be able to get all that Verizon is putting in the house?

  • sstgwt1 Aug 12, 2008

    I am sooo confused. The laptop is in a room that does not have a cable tuner box. I thought the tuner with antenna was stand alone that's why I bought the expresscard. :(

  • sstgwt1 Aug 13, 2008

    Thanks. I think I have it. I bought this thinking I would get all the channels my other tv's get.....but it will only pick up air channels, which appears to be only 5.

    Is this the Digital/Analog model or just the analog model?

If this is the same one I have, you should be getting all of your cable channels.

    If you have a cable plugged into it from the coax of your Verizon, you should be. Make sure that the splitter you are using is approved for digital cable use. Radio Shack carries some that will.

    You shoul have one line split into your cable tuner box and the other should be plugged into the Expresscard.

    It is a standalone unit as long as you have an antenna plugged into it. You will only get over the air channels that way.

    If your using Verizon as your cable provider and you want to connect your computer to the cable tv system, you will have to get a splitter into the cable connection in your wall, take a line from the splitter and plug it into the tuner card using the coax adaptor. Make sure the Express card is set in analog mode when you plug it in. You can probably get the first 150 channels that way.

    There is a setting on the card to switch between analog and digital channels. Depending on what mode the card is in, you can get more or less channels that way.

Play & Record VHS through TV Tuner Card

You need to connect the ariel to the vcr, then the vcr to the card, using a male/female fly lead. Then I suggest putting an origional film tape into the vcr, press play on the vcr and then scan in the channels on the card. It should pick up the vcr's output of the film that is playing.

Wireless internet and tuner

You need to have a tv tuner to be able to watch tv. If the express card you have is a tv tuner, you'll have to run a cable from the laptop to your cable tv connection or set top box. You can't do it over the internet.

When you watch TV with a Cable Box or a Dish Network Box you are using a tuner inside that box. The signal that comes out of that box only contains one channel, the one you're tuned to. So you can take the output of the Dish Box and send it into your ATI tuner card, but you cannot change the channel to anything other than what the DIsh Box is set to. I'm sorry, but that's just the way it is. I use a Hauppague tuner card that has what's called an "IR Blaster". By hooking this device up to my Cable Box and I can used my computer to change the channel on the Cable Box itself.

If you had cable, you could run the cable into the TV tuner and watch the analog channels. I have Time Warner in my area and they still broadcast about 50 channels in analog. I cannot use the tuner card to watch any of the digital channels. This probably does not help you, but I thought you might like to know.

I want you to know that I don't get paid to offer these suggestions. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like to help when I can. Even though I cannot solve your problem I hope I provided helpful information and you will give this solution a positive rating. I've noticed that many times this type of question goes unanswered because nobody wants to get a bad rating when a problem has no solution. Thanks and good luck.
