Hi All

After a lot of hours, and a reinstall of windows, and trying a known good card, I've got no where, so I hope someone has a simple answer for me!

I have a clean Windows 7 Machine, with nothing additional installed.  I have installed the latest version of the drivers from the Hauppauge UK Website, and then I open Media Center...

I'm wanting to setup a Satellite Tuner, so I select Satellite, and Media Center takes me directly to the Prepare for Set-top Box Setup...  weird!

So I go back again, and this time select Antenna, this time I get asked, do you want to use a Set-top box, No, then it assumes I want to use the Analog Tuner (vs the DVB-T Tuner).

In vain, I also tried the driver that Microsoft have on the Windows Update site, and the driver that came on the CD....  all had the same results.

Any ideas please!

Cheers
D

I had exactly the same issue with that card under win7,  for me making sure it was using the hauppauge drivers solved it (I was using DVB-T). So I would check and make sure it is using the hauppauge version of the drivers in device manager (even change driver and force it to use the hauppauge one).  T

The built in windows ones do not seem to work properly (Media center sees analog only).

Hi Mike

Thanks for the reply.  I was using the Hauppauge driver from there website, however I have just done as you suggested, and ensured that the machine is using that driver, which I can confirm (from what Windows wants to tell me) that it is.

However, still no Digital Tuners :(

Cheers
David
