I just got a tuner card a few days ago, and I've been trying to get it to work.
The software that came with it doesn't seem to want to tune, so I'm using something else. It seems to display black no matter what I input.
At the moment, I'm just trying to record games console footage onto the computer. I've got my console connected via composite to the video, which is connected from scart->adapter->composite->computer, and also from a TV Output on the video also to the card. I'm new to TV Tuners so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
The tuner doesn't appear to have a name, it seems to be a generic card (eBay bought), Philips chipset (can't give you a number right now). TV, composite and S-video input (only the former two I'm familiar with). At the moment I've ditched the software it came with for ChrisTV, a little tuner software I found online that seems to know what it's doing (the other software didn't seem to respond to most interaction).
I don't know if this is a PC problem or electronic in general but hopefully someone can help me out.
Two things for it appear under Sound, Video and Game Controllers: OEM 7130AM WDM TVTUNER OEM 7130AM WDM Video Capture
The TV itself doesn't actually recieve broadcasted TV (I haven't watched TV in a number of years), I only use it for the games console, so that may explain why, when connected directly to the TV's aerial, it picks up nothing.
It sounds rediculous, but the tuner's box has absolutely no signs of manufacturer's details. The only sort of title is 'PCI TV CARD'. There was a small disc with it that contained the software and driver.
Here is a link to the auction in which I won it, if its any help in identifying the thing. click here
