    i have recently bought a tv turner stick but have found that when trying to
    set up windows media player to tune etc there is no TV option in the menu,
    i'm runnig vista home premiun i cannot understand why the tv part of the
    center is missing, any ideas? is it just a download that i need to add, at
    present i don't appear to have any TV option at all

    There are lots of tuners on the market that do not meet the specs to be
    supported by Media Center.
    What make and model tuner did you get?

    The problem is not with the stick as i know other who have manged to use the
    same stick, the problem is that the tv menus/options in media player are
    completely missing (vista version) i have seen similar problems discussed in
    here but normally xp related and the fix does not work in Vista, basically,
    the menu should have tv+movie but the tv bit is missing, any ideas?

    If you don't want to tell us the make/ model of the stick then we can't help
    you very easily.
    Since you know others that have it working with MC then I suggest you ask
    them how they got it to work.

    windows media player can the stick cause this?

    Make sure you have the latest drivers for your unit from the Hauppauge UK
    site. If they do not resolve the problem see if you can run the Hauppauge
    WinTV application instead of MC using these drivers.
