Question about Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600 - ATSC HDTV receiver / analog TV tuner / video input ad (1181)

Tuning to pick up sky feed

I was wondering if you could offer me some advice please. I purchased a Professional 4 way Distribution Amplifier and Sky TV Links a couple of years ago, which I used to distribute Television and Satellite signals throughout my home via the outlet on my Sky box. On my old TV (not digital) I tuned channel 6 into my Sky channel which allowed me to watch and change the sky channels via the remote supplied with the Sky TV Link. I have recently purchased a Dell PC with a Hauppage Win TV-HVR-1200 Hybrid Analog/Digital TV Tuner card installed to replace my old TV, I have connected the TV supply cable to the card and set up the TV signal via windows media centre. It picked up the digital channels OK but unfortunately I cannot find a way to add my sky feed, do you know if this can be done and if so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.

You will only be allowed to watch 1 channel at a time if you have one box and use coax cable. If you have WI-FI using a sling box and roku (apple TV) adapters you can change the channel at each location but you still will only be able to watch one channel but you could watch the channels available on Roku. Best solution,and also the most expensive , is to have a cable box at each loaction.
