Windows 7: Suddenly no channels found using Volar HD Pro

Suddenly no channels found using Volar HD Pro

Hi, I have Aver Volar HD Pro USB tuner and I have been using it with WMC on W7 x64 for some time without any problem. But suddenly, low signal message appeared and when I tried to rescan channels, no channels were found. Sometimes (not very often) it actually finds 2 or 4 channels, but it still can't play them.

One might suggest, that I really have weak signal, but when I connect it to different computer, it works really well on the same home antenne. I have tried newest drivers, clearing WMC configuration, different USB ports,... but without any success

I really can't see where the problem might be. Does anyone do better?

Vista Home Premium & Windows 7

I had the same thing happen a few days ago, using 2 different tuners, a Compro E800F and a Tiny Twin.
The tuners worked with their own software (which is crap) but Windows couldn't find any channels. After pulling what's left of my hair out, I decided on a different aproach.
I found a restore point for 11 Jan and ran the restore. Everything working again.

Not Getting All Channels on WMC
Hi - Upfront, I'm a newbie to WMC TV. So that said.... I set it up this afternoon and scanned for analog and digital QAM stations. It only brought in channels 1-100, plus some "subchannels" which I don't understand: e.g., 15, 15.3 & 15.4; 11 channel 16s, some of which look the same. We...

RAM channels
What exactly is "triple channel" RAM? Is it just RAM that comes in a set of 3 or is the RAM different to dual channel? The reason I'm asking is that I was wondering if I could buy 3 sticks of "dual channel" RAM, and put them together, to make it triple channel on a new computer.

When I'm setting up WMC and the program is scanning for channels, how come it only comes up with 7 of them? I have Time Warner Cable of Queens.
