Hi all, I have a Packard bell SmartTV media centre that has 1.5gb memory, Ati X600 PCI-E graphics card, 320gb hard drive and twin Asus hybrid pci tv cards.
For some reason despite scanning time and time again, Win Media Centre 7 can find channels but no signal. I have a dvb-t ariel (not the usual tiny one supplied) but it still cant get any freeview, though it can find analogue which is terrible to view.
What am I doing wrong, be greatful for any ideas out there
Have you tried with your roof aerial? I would try a TV first on your PC aerial socket to ensure you really do have a good signal. I have my PC upstairs and put in a dedicated loft aerial above the room where the PC is.I also have TV dongle with a laptop and I keep a short aerial lead with it and use a roof aerial socket when possible.
Can you get a good picture on a digital TV in your room? It is unlikely without a higher aerial as BRINIT says. Cant you run a coax on the outside to a higher point? To establish it one way or the other , could a top floor tennant allow you to try upstairs?
