How can I watch TV on my Medion MD8000 PC? It has a tuner card, but the installed Power Cinema doesn't work.

Graham - your "click here" doesn't go anywhere!

Yes it does. Have a look at your Taskbar, it may be lurking there.

I have the same model which is now quite old. I had to get in touch with Medion who pointed me to a Power Cinema driver update,afraid the details are long gone.

Have you tried the Medion site they do give updates new drivers etc.

You dont necessarily need a roof top aerial,I use a portable one but have to move it to pick up the analogue channels, it cannot do digital.

medion site is click here you will need the pc's serial number to check on available updates.

Just checked the Medion site a patch for Power Cinema version 1 was issued in Nov 2003 and a driver update for the TV tuner at about the same time.

Sorry, Graham: it had come up on an invisible tab! The problem appears to be the tuner card. Power Cinema loads up OK but when I try to search for channels I can't select "antenna".

You have probably cracked the problem by now, but just in case I have just been reminded that I re-installed Power Cinema after having the same problem that you identify.
