Windows 7: Live TV Fine tune?

Live TV Fine tune?

Hello all, this is my first post here hope i get an answer.
I have a PlayTV USB 415 Analog TV Device, and I have a analog TV Cable attached to it.
The problem is that the windows media center does not have Channel lists for our area. So it had to manually tune them all. After the tuning was complete it detected 125 Channels which is spot on. But when I went to look at those channels most of them have really really bad signals. So I searched for them again, but its the same problem. Now I want to know if there is a way in Windows Media Center to Fine tune my channels. The program that comes with the device has this feature and all the channels are working perfectly on that.
PS. I have checked the cable and its working fine. So its only a matter of fine tuning the channels.

I don't know any way Windows Media Center can fine tune the channels. It simply receives the channel's best reception it can get but that depends on the signal. My advise for you is to make sure that the TV cable is tightly attached to your TV tuner or perhaps this PlayTV USB 415 Analog TV Device should be tightly fitted in place as well..

I have attached my TV cable tightly in place to my TV tuner and the reception is noticeably better than when I simply attached it without fitting it in the best possible way.
