TV Tuner not working, please help!

  thedogisdead3 15:28 17 Sep 2006

I've got myself a freeview TV tuner and it has worked fine for many months, now, out of the blue, it has given up on me.

When the TV is loaded up, all that will be shown is one single frame of television, and that's it, just a still picture, followed by the obligatory 'Non-responsive programme' message.

I have also found that some of my video files will not play whearas they used to be fine, so I'm supecting this is all to do with my video card, which if I remember rightly is an ATI Radeon 9200... the help files with it are not helpful at all.

Any ideas on this would be much appreciated!!!

Can you uninstall and reinstall the software and drivers for your TV card?

is this a standalone tuner or card integrated?

It's card integrated... I've tried re-installing the software with no joy.

Somebody said it could be a software conflic, but I dont know how to figure out which software is conflicting?!

Try installing the latest version of the Freeview card's drivers, plus DirectX 9.0c.

Right click My Computer - properties - Hardware - device manager - click on the Tuner card (ant symbols against the card?) and select properties again. it should show conflicts if any.
