Media Center help

  lazanda 13:36 09 Dec 2006

Can anyone tell me how to set up the TV signal in Media Center? I mean actually searching for the channels (1-5 etc).

Everytime I run the wizard it just takes me through the guide etc and then says finish and skips this part!

Thanks a lot,

you have to have a tv tuning car then plug u r ariel into the card and then use setup wizzard to get eh channels or use the software provided with the tv card.

I've tuned in the channels once. I just want to do it again as i have got a new ariel and I want to try and get channel 5 which at the moment is blank.

Every time I run the wizard in media center it skips the bit where I have to tune the channels in.

Thanks for your help,

I found the only way I could force MCE to retune the channels was to remove the tuner, under control panel, system, hardware, device manger, sound etc...Properties, remove.
Reboot, the tuner is found and installed, then open MCE and retune the channels.
