Hi everyone, been reading these forums for the last couple of months and been impressed with your wealth of knowledge. Decided to call on your knowledge for the first time today regarding my new computer and tv tuner. I'm currently running Windows Vista and i've been trying to configure my Twinhan tv tuner (3056 hybrid tuner model) to work with Media center. When i scan for digital channels I'm only receiving 7 channels. This is despite using the same outside ariel i use for my freeview box, which recieves 60 channels. I'm in an area of Wales where, technically, I shouldn't recieve digital terrestrial, but as i said my freeview box has no problem recieving the channels (ariel is quite high up). My Tv tuner driver is the latest specific Vista driver too. I'm therefore running out of ideas to get it working properly. Do you think an ariel booster might help, or do you guys have any other ideas???
Thanks for your suggestions. Isn't driver version 126.96.36.199 newer than driver 188.8.131.52? To clarify i have 184.108.40.206 installed with Vista. I've just spent another hour "tinkering" with not much luck. The situation at the moment is I have BBC channels playing perfectly. ITV and Channel 4 have been found but aren't playing, i think due to poor signal. Is there any way to check signal strength in Media center? As i said earlier the signal strength is fine for my freeview tuner, using the same ariel. I'm definately scanning digital terrestrial channels by the way, I do have The Hits channel for instance. I'm scratching my head in frustration.
I think i might try a signal booster before i consider getting a better outside aerial. The rest of the house tv's get a good signal via freeview boxes. Thanks for all your replies folks, keep messaging if you have any further suggestions, all welcome.
