Windows 7: Media Center and HVR 1300 Tuner

Media Center and HVR 1300 Tuner


I have experiencing problems with my tuner, Windows Media Center reconises it and can scan for channels OK.

When I go to play LiveTV, I get a message saying

"no tuner available to satisfy the current request"

I have searched and search the forums and google, but can not find anything that helps or has quite the same problem as this - unless Im being blind lol.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
