Hope someone can offer some help on this.

I purchased a new HVR 900.  My current setup is an analogue aieriel and a sky aerial (not dish) joining at some kind of box on the roof, and a single cable going into the house.  This coax is currently in the back of my HTPC, running a Haupaggue 150MCE.  It tunes the analogue OTA stations just fine, but NOT prime.

I plugged the HVR900 into my laptop, with PDVD8, and the latest Hauppague drivers, and Win TV 4.4.  I tried to tune digital (DVB-t) but no dice.  Then I tried analogue.  I could see the channels flash by in a fuzzy way, but no lock.  Similar for DVB viewer and mediaportal.  Now I can undrstand no digital, as for all I know the UHF is pointing the wrong way, or not working as I have never had prime (which is UHF I think).  But why Cant I tune analogue when the 150 MCE does it fine?

WinTV won't work well. You need something like GB-PVR, Media Portal or dvbviewer (which I use). There's a free tool from dvbviewer that will scan the channels so you know they are there.

I use the HVR-900 on my setup and I get all DVB-T channels (of course I have line of sight to Mt Kaukau).

Check the sticky post guide in this forum for correct configuration.

Thanks for the reply.  As you can see from my post, i tried those options (dvbviewer and media portal) but I can't get analogue even with those.

Oh, for analogue you can use pretty much any tv tuning program, assuming you have the signal. Where abouts do you live?
