Windows 7: ATI TV Wonder 650PCIe

ATI TV Wonder 650PCIe

Hey Sevenforums,

I just got and installed a new ATI TV Wonder 650PCIe. I've also installed the latest drivers from the ATI website. I ran the WMedia Center live tv configuration and everything went smoothly.

When I try to watch TV, I can only get the channels that are not in HD. When I go to the main FOX or NBC or ABC or PBS channels, I get a message saying that the channel is unavailable, or off the air, or something.

The antenna that I'm using is not an "amplified" or specifically "digital" antenna. But it always worked for fetching HD channels when it was hooked directly into my TV. Could the antenna be the problem? Or do I need to configure something else?

I'm a little bumbed that I didn't get any feedback on this issue but I'm happy to report that it is solved.

Solution: I ordered a legit DTV antenna, installed it and that did the trick.
