Installation of a codec pack might help.

All you have to do is to download the file here, start it and click through the series of install/next buttons. Program will do everything automatically (search and uninstall old codecs and install new).

If there is an option suggested settings use it. Just make sure to unclick crapware like ASK TOOLbar.

what are you using for a source? Antenna/aerial? Sounds like you may have weak signal.

Are you talking about Live TV or video playback? If its about video playback, I assume you might have problems with Codecs and yes, try installing Shark Codecs. If its about live TV, I assume your system specs (like that 1.8GHz processor) are not fit enough to handle live TV.
