Does anyone have analog TV (DBV-T) working on Windows media center 7? If so was there anything in particular that you had to do?

I have just added a analog tuner to my setup (its a hybrid, analog and digital) but it is not picking up any analog channels.

I added the analog to enable the recording of sky via the analog signal.

Any idea's?

Edit: To add, WMC sees the tuner under digital (but i cannot test the channels since it is not freeview compatable). Under analog it just adds "analog tuner" and does not ask me to select which tuner, this might be normal however, i do not know.

Well to start off, DVB-T is digital video broadcast using terrestrial equipment (hence the name, DVB-T).
You say your going to record sky via analog. Sky UHF (the analog service) was shut down a few months ago, so you can only record sky via satellite.

If you post exactly what tuner(s) you have, thats a good starting point

Sorry yeah, meant to put in just the Terrestrial part, got a bit slack.

I am recording sky via analog through the digital receiver. The receiver still has a analog out.

All fixed now anyway, a reboot did the trick apparently.
