Default Re: Can't get Hauppauge HVR-1600 to get QAM MediaCenter?

Did you apply the install of the driver?

Using device manager doesn't work you need to use the Wintv installer not installing wintv but only driver set and getting the complete succesful message at the end with a pc restart needed.

Make sure your QAM section of the tuner is connected with a signal that carries the channels desired by MCE.

Also make sure playready and the hotfixes are installed too with TVpack.

Also make sure to have the latest chipset and display drivers also installed.

Been running what i need for ever with my tuner and MCE with tvpack 2008 for months now no issues at all.

Also make sure you have windows firewall turned off when aquiring guide data and setup info so i can get region settings for tuner or it will not work right.

Usually their are 2 posts on Hauppauge cards with NTSC and ATSC signals so use ATSC as default first to force the signal and than connect other NTSC and rerun setup again to pick up other tuner.

Good luck
