Windows 7: HD TV Tuner Issues

HD TV Tuner Issues

My set up:

Dell Studio XPS 8100
46 inch Samsung LED TV
Ceton infiniTV 4
ATI Radeon HD 5670

(Adding Bowers&Wilkins speakers and reciever)

The problem:

Recently, Media Center only sometimes recognizes the TV tuner and cable card, often won't display a signal, wants me to reset everything up (I've done this twice). Any ideas on what could be happening? The only change I made around the time of the problems was linking my Xbox as a Media center extender through and Ethernet cable to my computer.

Now it fails to work 100% of the time.

Adding more details and pictures...

Check to see if the following update is installed from the "View update history" page.
If not, try to install it.

Every now and then it does that with me. The work around for me was to close media center then End the Processes in 'Task Manager'. Then restart Media Center. However since doing a clean install with SP1 integrated, it has not done it yet

Here are the Processes to kill in Task Manager:
