Recommended Posts

I am building new HTPC and installed Hauppuage WinTV QuadHD  Pci-E Tv tuner. I got Elisa Cable TV. However when I tried tune channels, it found none. It stays like until end of channel scan and find nothing

I tried add <entry name="SRx1000">1</entry> to hardware.xml but it did not change thing. I attached support.zip

 

Anyone else had issues with this tuner?

Is there a web site listing the channels provided by Elisa Cable TV, plus the frequencies and maybe other reception parameters (like symbol rate and modulation)?

  • MUX = Kanavanippu
  • modulation: QAM256 (MUX 2 JA 3 QAM128)

Did you used the latest driver from their website? It must be an exe file. I had problems using an older driver which was an inf. driver.

I used one named driver85_1_59_36248.exe that i downloaded from Hauppauge website. I assume that is latest driver

I tried that one and still no luck. I also updated to latest version of DVBViewer but it made no different. When I am using USB tuner it starts pick up channels almost instantly and indicators wont stay red, but on this wont. I upgraded my tuner and hardware to record more stuff at the same time. And I did clean Windows install with clean DVBViewer install. I attached my hardware.xml if there is some differences there

Thanks for investigation. I've created a corresponding transponder list with TransEdit (a Scanner and Transponder List Editor software, see DVBViewer download area). Select Help -> Configuration Folder in DVBViewer (opens an Explorer window), store the attached INI file in the Transponders subdirectory of the configuration folder and restart DVBViewer. After that the Reception Settings page of the Channel Editor will offer "Elisa Kaapeli-TV" in the "Transponder Lists" box for DVB-C as reception type. Using it for the channel search should accelerate it considerably.

that doesn't sound very promising, as far as it concerns your Hauppauge WinTV QuadHD. Though the "Cable All" transponder list is not tailored for your cable network, a channel search should at least find some channels.

 

Zero results suggest that DVBViewer gets no data from the driver, either because the card is damaged or the driver doesn't work as it should. After trying the new transponder list, I would check if the QuadHD works with the Hauppauge WinTV software. Please note that WinTV installs a background process that accesses the tuners, thus probably preventing DVBViewer from using them successfully.

Sorry for delay. I had very busy weekend. I ended up testing trying install WinTV and during install it prompted for driver update. After that I decided abort setup (when it prompted for key) and see if that driver would work. Well it did find channels without any issues and I am getting perfect reception. Thanks for the help and Elisa cable tv trasnponder list, it will save lot of time when I need retune channels.

I kinda think I remember this bug...

I always had issues with Hauppauge tuners on DVBViewer, but DVB-C or even DVB-T tuner market is super niche these days and Happauge is only decent option unless go for no name tuners without any warranty. Even more niche is software. Before I found and bought DVBViewer I had tried Windows Media center which lacked EPG reception over cable and could not even tune for European Cable TV, Happauge Wintv support it but otherwise it is absolute trash for anything expect to get IRremote.dll file in order to use remote control. DVBViewer is only software that works properly for watching and recording tv without all type of tweaking required. Sure it got compatibility issues with some tuners, but that is since it was meant to be universal software and not for single tuner and atleast it got helpful community that tries solve these problems and any found bugs with tuners are patched on next version.

 

Thanks for all help, I finally got my new card to work and can start finish my new HTPC build. I hope someone else finds this thread helpful on fixing issue with this card

Nice, this one is even newer than mine. So I have to install their software? I thought the don't use BDA-Drivers and if I remember correct you have to validate the install with something I might not have anymore...

All you need to do is run installer from their website and let it update drivers and when this activation prompt comes just close setup program, it installs most up to date driver and wont leave wintv to your system. Not sure why cant they bundle these drivers are standalone

@Mr.Scienceman2000Thanks. I tried it but also blocked the app in my Firewall, so it did nothing. Maybe the old driver must be uninstalled before?

first page had option "do not update driver", make sure that is not checked. For me it was upgrade over existing driver.
