i bought a philips LS1400 running windows MCE and when i try to access live tv, a blue screen appears. according to the antenna may be loose, but its not. is the pc faulty?

any help would be appreciated thanx

ps i just connected the aerial to the back of the pc, am i missing something obvious here?
also, the manual shows a yellow wire connecting to the pc but doesnt tell me where to plug the other end! and i cant find anywhere that it could plug into

also, i think i dont have any software included for the card, its a Hauupauge but i never got any WinTV software. i just access it in Media Center through My TV, Live TV but i still get just a blue screen. Help!

Have you tuned in the stations?

i thought of that before but hey im a little slow and i have no idea how to tune in so please SPELL IT OUT FOR ME!!!!

This is where you will need some software to access the tv card.
I would have expected the software to be already installed though.

Why not go back to PCWorld and get them to sort it.

Just had a thought are you in an area that can receive freeview signals?
