    Hi, I´m having a problem with a Windows XP Media Center 2005 PC.
    I´ve purchased a ENLTV tuner with Phillips SAA7130HL chip, I´ve plugged in,
    installed the drivers that came in the Tuner CD, and the Utility to watch TV.
    No problems.
    When I started Media Center, went to SETTINGS > TV and successfully
    configured the TV Settings, no problems ´till then. (First issue, when the
    wizard asked for my country, I´ve choose Argentina and I get an error saying
    that the Tuner doesn’t supports the country I’ve chosen. I choose US and the
    wizard goes on and automatically detected “Cable TVâ€, which is right, I have
    cable TV service.
    When the wizard finish I go to LIVE TV and all channels have no signal, and
    MCE gives me the no signal error. Now, two questions, why the Utility that
    came with the Tuner does let me choose Argentina as the default region and
    MCE doesn’t? And second, why I can see TV normaly with the build in Tuner
    utility and MCE doesn’t get any signal?
    Your answer is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    No, honestly I didn´t know I needed to check that when I purchase the Tuner,
    I thinked that if it was compatible with all windows versions including XP,
    it will work with MCE.

  4. While MCE is based on XP Pro, it does require MCE specific drivers for the
    tuner hardware.

    Thank you very much. You were right, it is compatible with all Windows
    versions, but it´s not compatible with MCE.

    Bye! and Thanks again!!
