ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners for Windows 7 Get New Firmware

For Windows Media Center

Along with the enhancements announced for the Windows Media Center component of Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions, Microsoft has also unveiled that AMD would tailor the ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners to the latest Windows client and its precursor. According to details released by the Redmond-based company at CEDIA EXPO 2009, AMD is cooking a new firmware release for ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners.

Microsoft noted that the firmware update currently in the works would be offered by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to all ATI TV Wonder digital cable tuners integrated with computers running Windows 7 and Windows Vista. The software giant and the CPU maker have worked together in order for the ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners firmware refresh to be made available to customers who can now add digital cable tuners with CableCARD to a Windows 7-based PC with Windows Media Center.

The new ATI TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuners is designed to increase flexibility for end users when it comes down to dealing with digital cable TV content. In this regard, the refresh increases the level of portability available for digital cable TV marked as “copy freely” (CF) for all digital cable tuner with CableCARD customers

“Customers will be able to play CF-marked digital cable recordings, such as those from local channels, on other PCs, devices, and portable media. In addition, the firmware will contain support for SDV. When installed on a Windows 7-based PC with a digital cable tuner with CableCARD and a tuning adapter from a cable provider, it enables access to switched digital channels in locations where SDV has been deployed,” Microsoft informed.

On September 9th, 2009, the Redmond-based company noted that a few enhancements had been added to Windows 7 Windows Media Center including support for switched digital video (SDV). Microsoft will provide Windows 7 users a tool designed to evaluate whether a computer is ready or not for the addition of a digital cable tuner with CableCARD.

No Cable Digital Guide Data
My HTPC using Windows 7 Media Center/QAM tuner sees the digital channels as odd numbers; ABCHD is channel 901, however it shows up as 1008.901. All analog guide data is present, however, no digital guide data showing regardless of what digital channel. Anyone know how to resolve?

Need recommendation for digital cable tuner
Today I made a mistake; I bought a digital tuner which I thought carried digital cable. As I was setting the tuner up the instructions clearly stated that I could not get cable signals through my cable connection, only over the air. I live in the country so this is absolutely worthless to me. ...

Digital Cable on build 7000
Does anyone here have digital cable (DCTs) working with build 7000? I and other have received tuner in use, and video decoder errors. No one at the green button seems to have an answer, so I thought I'd ask here.
