View Full Version : wintv probs

12-08-2009, 07:28 PM
Just installed a Hauppauge HVR-2200 card. Connected it from the sky decoder and set it up with windows media centre. No problems (well one - lost my 5.1 sound setup) but got all channels, sky etc...

However, when I started up wintv I get nothing? it scanned all regions for NZ and didn't find one single channel??

I just found an install guide that says:

External audio/video sources
You can bring video into the WinTV from an external audio/video source
such as a cable TV or satellite set top box.
In the Device Setup Wizard, select External Inputs and click Next.

But, I don't get any option to select external inputs, only an option for DVB-T or 2 analogue options...???

Downloaded a different version of WinTV. It now allows me to select the external source and finds 9 composite or S-video channels but no signal on each.

It can't really be this hard? Of course I don't want to use windows media files (dvr-ms) as i want to edit the files...

Did you connect the outside aerial to it? It shouldnt have to go through the decoder (if this is what you did)
