Windows 7 Media Center Compatible TV Tuner

I need some help

I recently purchased a new HP PC running Windows 7 64 bit

I also purchased a USB TV Tuner from Sabrent that said it was Windows 7 compatible. While the TV Tuner is Windows 7 compatible, it is not Media Center compatible.

Help me with a USB TV Tuner stick that is both Windows & and Media Center compatible
