tv on my pc?

Another problem my mates having with his Dell,
The pc has windows media edition and a Haupauge winTV pvr pci 2 card in it and it has an arial socket so we thought that plugging in tv arial would make him be able to watch tv on his pc,

But when it tunes in theses no channels, well what i mean is it finds the channels but theres no picture or sound, just static.

So how do we fix this?

Has he tuned in the channel correctly. Has he checked the settings. Some time in the settings you have the choice of cable or aerial. Cable is useually the default setting it needs to be changed to aerial to get a signal. Also has he checked that the aerial cable he is using is OK.

Yep done all that, still no picture :(

From the Hauppauge mamual a weak signal could be a problem. If the signal from the aerial is being split between tvs this can cause a weak signal.

You could also check for driver updates click here if Dell use their own drives you will need to go to the Dell web site.

I fixed the problem by rescanning the channels.
