Vista Media Center, using ATSC OTA and composite line in

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View


Hi,

I banged my head on this for a couple hours last night thinking I was
missing something.

I have a home built PC with Vista Media Center, and as of right now one ATI
TVWonder 600USB. (I also have a PCHDTV3000 that couldn't scan).

I have two questions.  I'm trying to hook up my Nintendo Wii to the
TVWonder, as well as get TV ATSC over the air.  There didn't seem to be a way
to configure that in Media Center using the wizards that were available.  Is
there a way to do that?

Also, in Milwaukee we have channel 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 6.1, 10.1, 10.2... How do
I get to the .x stations that aren't .1?  We have a total of 30 stations that
way around here but with MCE I can only get 15.

Thanks,
Matt.

If your planning on using your Wii via MCE forget it, the recording delay
will make it unplayable.

Your tuner card is a hybrid tuner card which means that only one of the
tuners can be used at a time.
Vista MC will not let you configure both tuners on the card since they can
not be used at the same time.   iIn MC you have to choose between the OTA
digital tuner and the Analog/video capture tuner.
Also AFAIK the Vista MC EPG still only provides data for the n-1, digital
channel and you have to manually add the n-2, n-3 digital channels for any
local broadcaster.

The EPG downloads only the n.1 channels. You have to manually add the
others.  Beginning about 2 weeks ago, the program data for them is now
available.
