Windows 7: Media Center cannot find TV Tuner

Media Center cannot find TV Tuner

I installed a USB DVB-T TV stick together with the supplied software and driver. On loading the software it found the tuner and scanned and found all the channels and the TV appears on the screen. However, when I try to use MC it says there is no tuner available. Devices & Printers lists an Unspecified Device but names it as a TV stick and says the driver is fine and everything is working normally. Troubleshooter says there is no problem to troubleshoot. I have unplugged and replugged the device several times and have also rebooted several times with no avail.

Any advice would be appreciated as the supplied software is rather crude compared to Media Center and I would prefere to use MC.

Problem solved. Despite continuing to say that there was no tuner (even while watching TV on the screen) I moved to Settings/Tasks/Set up TV and it found the tuner, scanned for all the channels and is now working as it should.

Microsoft continue to work in mysterious ways!
