I hope I make sense in this post, it's been a long night of working on an upgrade install (Vista 32 to Windows 7 Beta)... now I have discovered that the whole point I did it (to get QAM working in MCE) was a waste.
In Vista 32 MCE, the 801e stick is detected (after installing MCE drivers
as well as Vista drivers), and the analog portion works in MCE (but no digital, QAM, clearQAM, etc).
After reading up, I found that supposedly, Windows 7 MCE would support QAM straight away, however this is simply not the case.
I performed an upgrade install to Windows 7... got the ATI card to work (finally)...
Then after uninstalling/unplugging the 801e and plugging it back in, Windows 7 did find it again, and did install some sort of driver
automatically from Windows Update. However in MCE, it does nothing. Even starting from scratch in MCE Setup, it goes through the motions but finds no tuners...
Ultimately the whole reason I decided to experiment with Windows 7 was to tune in to (and record) QAM and clearQAM HD channels over cable... now I can't even get MCE to do analog. It doesn't detect ANY tuner, even though the driver is installed via Windows Update.
Has anyone else run into this problem, or better yet, solved it?... thanks in advance
