    Is there anybody out there who could help me with an issue I am experiencing
    with an ATI TV Wonder DIgital Cable Tuner? I am trying to setup the Tuner to
    run live TV using Windows Media Center via a DirecTv Satellite Set-Top Box.
    I know that the Tuner supports this functionality. I can sometimes get the
    channels running, but often they cut out (especially if I go to movie
    channels that I know I get) with a message indicating a Decoder error and
    that the playback does not support, etc. etc. Often times when I try to
    reconfigure the tv signal, WMC tells me that it can't find the tuner or can't
    locate a signal. After a reboot or two I can reconfigure and get it running
    again, but I still have the problem with the Decoder error. I have tried
    calling AMD, Dell (who I purchased it through), etc. and they all seem out to
    lunch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. I'm not sure - but the Green Button website has forums with people who
    almost certainly have the same hardware and probably the same issues

    I'd ask there : http://thegreenbutton.com/default.aspx for media
    center stuff.
