Media Center no longer sees PEAK tuner card
I've been using a PEAK 221544AGPK DVB-T card under windows 7 pro 32-bit for recording tv programmes. All was working fine for 6 months until I changed one of the registered media folders to a network drive that happened to be offline at the time. It now refuses to work. I have:
reinstalled the tuner driver
checked for tuner driver updates
removed the card completely, restarted the pc and then reinstalled the card again
re-installed windows 7 (using the "update" option)
The card is working fine because if I install the free (but otherwise useless!) "hypermedia center" media application that came with the card, I can receive and record tv ok but when I uninstall the hypermedia centre again (leaving just the driver installed) and then try again to set-up the tuner in WMC, it says there's no tuner card. Continued attempts to set-up results in an assortment of error boxes including the following:
1) TUNER NOT FOUND - THE TV SIGNAL CANNOT BE CONFIGURED BECAUSE A TV TUNER WAS NOT DETECTED......
2)TV SETUP CANNOT CONTINUE - SOME MEDIA CENTER SERVICES ARE NOT WORKING.......
3)INVALID APPLICATION - UNABLE TO LAUNCH
4)WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER HAS STOPPPED WORKING - WINDOWS IS CHECKING FOR A SOLUTION
5)WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER HAS STOPPPED WORKING - A PROBLEM CAUSED THE PROGRAMME TO STOP WORKING PROPERLY
The only thing that I can think of now is to do a complete re-install of windows which seems very excessive for this comparatively trivial problem. Thanks in advance for help from anyone a lot cleverer than me.
