I recently noticed I can no longer receive Digital TV on my PC. Aerial reception was checked using a portable TV and appears OK. Reinstalled drivers - no difference. Emailed K World (the manufacturer)after finding nothing on their web site but got no reply. The rest of the software relating to DV camcorder use seems OK. I suppose the installed card might have failed but can't see how to check this.

I installed IE7 a few months ago, which gave me a problem with my HP Director (now sorted) and wondered if my DTV problem might have the same cause in IE7?

If it's a PCI TV card, try reinstalling the card to ensure it is securely housed in the socket.

If this fails, try another socket if one is available.

Thanks StuartH but this DTV card operated for 2 years without a problem so I doubt if a connection issue has arisen now.

It's after a few years that connection problems do arise, due to corrosion of contacts.

Hence removing and replacing does sometimes clean the contacts.
