Windows 7: Several Media Center problems

Several Media Center problems

Ok running Windows 7 on an intel MB and dual core proc. Have been using a single ATI HD 600 USB tuner card. Has been up and running since March.

A little background on me. I'm a systems engineer for a large corporation. I run the Phones, Network, server, helpdesk etc.

Problem 1

I bought and installed an ATI HD600 PCI express tuner card. I cannot for the life of me get media center to see this card. I want to be able to watch live tv and record or record 2 shows at one time. Any suggestions here? I bought these because i'm extremely poor and Woot had a good deal on them.

Problem 2
How the hell do you get another windows 7 box to view recorded TV? I have a netbook and laptop that's I'd like to use to view recorded TV. I cannot find anything on the net that tells me how to do so.

Any help is much appreciated!

T.C.

Did you install the drivers for the TV Card?
