    Pinnacle PCI Card i800

    Does NOT work in by Media Center. Will not receive any channels.

    It only works under win7 64 using the supplied PCTV software, which is quite buggy.
    just was wondering did you install play ready in media center?
    i have a pinnacle card also suppose to be digital and analog
    only picks up digital with the pinnacle buggy software
    but analog is no problem in media center with win 7 64x

    I just found a thread on another site, that was from someone with the same card as you. He installed the optional updates from the Windows Update and managed to get OTA working through WMC, but no QAM.
    There seems to be quite a few others that are having the same problem with your card...
    Here is a direct link to the pinnacle website for the official W7 drivers for your card. If it's still not working, I'd suggest nagging Pinnacle until they have it fixed!

    Glad to hear the drivers worked for you mate :)
    I've updated the list to include your card as working, however, as Pinnacle was taken over by Avid, there doesn't seem to be a product info page available for it anymore so I've instead included the driver download page
    Thanks for your feedback!

    AverMedia Combo works


    I was able to get Win 7, 64 bit Media Center to work with the AverMedia "Combo" tuner. (white box version-OEM) The card uses a PCI-e slot. I'm using it with an analog input signal.

    I use the TV card for purposes of editing content, so I was disappointed to discover Media Center only produced wtv files, which are not very useful outside the MC environment. (I'll try the included editing suite later) I already had Corel VideoStudio for video editing, but it doesn't recognize the AverMedia card. Finally found CyberLink PowerDirector which DOES recognize the Avermedia card AND can produce avi, mpeg, etc files.

    So, finally, I'm back to where I was with XP! (thankfully)

    This might seem like a dumb question, but does the tuner affect the quality of the picture like how the graphic card does? I ask because I have full HD 1080p monitors with a radeon HD4670 graphics card, and my picture is still sub standard; the shows are dark. I have changed resolution up down left right and center, no joy.
