    Hey, I just installed the Windows 7 RTM build from Technet. I also just
    purchased an AverTV Combo M780 Tuner (for the analog and OTA). I already
    had a HDHomeRun which gave me 2 ATSC Digital signals.

    But I'm having trouble configuring all the tuners in Media Center... I
    can get the Analog working fine, and the 2 HDHomeRun tuners.... Although
    the MCE only detects HD signals from HDHomeRun if I AUTOMATICALLY setup
    the TV Signal. But if I select automatic, it doesn't configure my
    Digital tuner from my AverTV M780 (says AverTV Tuner 2 detected, but
    will not be configured.. why?). If I manually configure my TV signal, it
    uses all 3 tuners, but only finds analog channels. No digital channels
    can be found.

    Whats the best way to add all my tuners? Can I just do automatic, and
    manually add OTA channels even though it didn't configure the ota
    tuner?

    Summary:
    If I select automatic TV Tuner Configuration:
    -Finds Analog Channels
    -Finds 4/30 Digital Channels
    -DOESN'T CONFIGURE MY OTA DIGITAL TUNER FROM MY AVERTV M780 (ONLY USES
    1 ANALOG, 2 HDHOMERUN ATSC TUNERS)

    If I select manual TV Tuner ConfigutatioN:
    -Finds Analog Channels
    -DOESN'T FIND DIGITAL CHANNELS
    -Says it uses all 4 tuners (1 analog, 2 HDHomeRun Tuners, 1 AverTV ATSC
    Tuner)

    I don't understand what you think you are getting when you configure
    manually since the HDHR and the Aver ATSC tuner only receive digital
    channels.
    What are the Analog channel numbers that you believe you are receiving using
    the manual configuration from the HDHR and ATSC tuner?
    Are you using an antenna or cable to receive the digital channels?
