Hi All,
In WMC win7 x64, I can only get the Tv1, Tv1+1, Tv2, Tv3 , Tv3+1 and 4 . I don't mind not having Maori channel, Parliament tv and all the other Asian channels (sounds a bit racist when I read this back to myself, but I'm not LOL) , but I'd like to get Prime Tv. 
I know my UHF aerial is ok, because I can get all the channels on my other HTPC using a HVR 2210. 
BTW the card is 2nd hand, off Trademe. 

Has anyone had this issue?
Thanks

You are missing an entire MUX (Kordia). usually this is a reception issue.
If you move the PC to the location where the one that is picking them all up is, do you get the channels? (You should also get Choice and Shopping - yay!)

Your Nova T is probably less sensitive than the other tuner and needs more signal strength.

Yes it is a reception issue.
trig42 I was testing it in the same location as my other htpc, which received all the channels, even swapped cards to no avail.
B1GGLZ you were right the Nova T is less sensitive, I would never have guessed this, I just assumed since the 2210 picked up all the channels the nova would do the same.
I tested it at my brothers place, who has a bigger aerial with more elements and it picked up all the channels.
Thank you both for your help, glad I didn't buy a dud, just need to get a better aerial.
