Windows 7: I can't figure out what tuner card I have

I can't figure out what tuner card I have

I have a tuner card, and have made sure it is properly installed, but I don't have drivers for it, and I don't know how to tell what tuner card it is so that I can look for the proper drivers.

I believe it plugs into an x1 or an x4 PCI express slot, but I'm not sure which one it is.

All I need is a way to figure out what tuner card it is.

if there is no manufacturers name on the card,look for the FCC number and do a google search,did you look under device manager to see if the card is listed there?

Pull the card out and check the stickers on it, there should be one with a FCC number on it. If there is write it down and go here,

OET -- FCC ID Search

and you should be able to find who made it.

Also check any and all other labels on it, one of them should have the model number at least.

I think I found the drivers I need. Now I just need to figure out what program will work with my tuner card. Windows Media center should probably work. If id doesn't end up working, I'll make another post asking what to use.

By the way, it was a Combo-210e.
