I recently got a splitter to my OTA antenna and was told I needed 5-1000 Mhz, I assume you are using cable so I believe the splitter need to be 5-2400MHz.
Have you considered the HDHomeRUn Prime as an alternative to the internal card?

Awesome signature!

No I havn't the reason is i'm the main user and internal card fits my needs also $150.00 cheaper I also thought about talking to my cable company for one of there DVR'S

I seen the HomerunHD but would rather have a personal connection wired to the pc

That way don't have network stream headaches if it goes out

I feel your pain, and that's a reality! DVR dude! I have directTV and I have added a 1tb external hdd to the sat box. No more TV issues in my house.

I'm just getting into the world of online TV, I had no idea there has so much available for free. Now that i have a 27" high def monitor it's enjoyable to watch vid's online. It was OK with my old 21" 1080i but I normally watch a 65" so I'm spoiled rotten.

Yeah I was watching tv yesterday on my monitor but im running into issues with it crashing after 10 to 15 min of play

I had time to ponder if it is the PCI-E slot it is in or the Video Acceleration ? I remember turning it on I am going to a do a search on it kinda sucks though picture is real clean and I got all into the Squidbillies and then I froze up it started turning green then the crash comes with the program stop responding then whole Pc lock up have to hard reset

Looking into hardware manager there are no issues think my Video card is conflicting with the tuner?


Now I have to back track that statement the picture in CCC I just clicked it right now im wondering when I turned it on from the tv card I have to turn it on from here too

I will check back in with results of fail or pass

Solar, I'm sorry but I will be no help at all. I have been thinking of getting one but have not yet so have no experience with them at all. I am sure you have read the documentation that came with the card. From everything I have read, they will run on X1, X4 or even X16 slots. So, that should not be a problem unless you board's pcie slot is malfunctioning.

I'm not familar with the brand of card you are using, but I've read that some of the card makers have excellent technical support. I may persue that avenue. There may also be some help in user reviews for the card. Also, posting in the Media Center section of the forums is where some of the more knowledgable people about this hang out.

Sorry I can't be of any help.

Fair enough what I am going to do is try a different Gage spliter to the pc and see if that has anything to do with it for some odd reason I think I need to check the cables again the above picture was fine then I got this I was afraid a crash or freeze was coming so I turned it off and took a shot off color out of no where also this did get 5 stars
