Windows 7: Problem watching TV

Problem watching TV

I have one problem watching TV in Win 7 Media Center. My tunner is a Hauppauge HVR-4000.

At first everything works perfect, but after about 30 min of watching TV, the image begins to "stop and go" repeatedly (sorry I don't know how to call it in english). The same does the movement of the Media Center menus if I brouse throught them. It doesn't happen with the sound, that works correctly. It neither happens if I watch a video instead of TV, even if its long.

Have you some idea of witch is the problem?

Does it happen if you use the WinTv app that came with your tuner?

You can try optimizing Windows Media Center if there are errors. Check this link:

Optimization in Windows Media Center

Also try defraging your drive.

Thanks for the answer,

It's solved.

I had the DVB Sat tunner and a card reader to tune pay channels with DVBLink TVSource and watch them in Media Center. And I tunned DVB T channels with another tuner directly in Media Center.

The problem seemed a bad compatibility with the tunning softwares or the tunners working together. I set the two tunners to work with TVSource and problem solved.
