Another TV Card Installation Problem - Help?

I bought a Medion TV card but the instructions are appalling. I managed to get the radio to work and I have connected the TV cable, which works as I checked it on a TV, but I can't get it to scan for channels.

Anyone any ideas?

did you install power vcr11 that came with the card,

fire up the program and click on the system settings on the power vcr panel(it looks like a hammer and nail, just next to the led type icon that says TV).

in the panel that pops up click on channels, then auto-scan, this then should scan for any tv stations that can be picked up.

or if you bring up the power vcr panel and look on the right hand side, you will see a little arrow, click on this and a new panel should pop out to the right,if you click on the magnification glass icon, this should also scan for any available channels.

Ps it also works if you hook it up to your sky box, plug it into the second ariel out socket, then enable it in the sky box settings,works a treat

I've been trying for the last few weeks but I still can't get this blasted card to work. The scan channel button is not highlighted and I still can't get any TV channels - should I reinstall?

Any help would be appreciated.

I've tried the solution that Bab_5 gave but as I said the card doesn't give the facility for a scan. Could it be because I'm not geting a good enough TV signal from my aeriel? I actually have a TV sitting beside it and the reception there is fine.

Any help woulod be appreciated and I did not the advice on tag1_uk 's reply
