Windows 7: Reception Issues

Reception Issues

In the media center when I click on watch live tv, i often get 'poor reception, cannot view' or whatever the error is on every channel, but when I got into settings I see reception to be good (green). At the same time, I can view the same channels on another computer (the tuner is HDHomeRun, so it works on any computer).

Also, the error may have been "Video Error", not poor reception

Any clue on what could be busted?

I could reproduce this in another viewer (that came with HDHomeRun) so this was not a WMC issue.

The issue turned out to have turned up after updating ION drivers, which is apparently a known issue.

The workaround is to rollback the drivers, however, I just downloaded the 'HD Audio Driver' of Nvidia's site, and my issue went away.
