Hi All, I just got my dvb-t tuner card setup and am having some problems getting the channels to work in windows 7 media center.

I did the scan, and it completed just fine. WMC found all the channels (from tvnz, mediaworks, and kordia muxes).

Now the problem is I can only view channels 1,2,3 (which look great!)

The rest of the channels (c4, prime, maori, tv3+1, tvnz6 etc...) are just a black screen. I can't hear any audio on these channels either.

I have tried installing shark007 windows 7 codecs which aren't helping either...

Do you guys have any ideas?


PS: incase it matters, my system specs:
Win7 RC, 9500gt, 2GB ram, 3500+ amd, asus mycinema u3100 usb tuner

now c4 is working, but tv1 is not.

So all I can watch now is tv2, 3 and c4...

does this sound like a signal strength related issue? If so, how can I check the strength?

this is sorted. I installed newer drivers for the tuner.
