Hauppauge Hvr-2200 - No Channel 7
Posted 27 February 2012 - 09:03 AM
This is a new PC build with fresh Windows 7 64-bit. Neither WMC or WinTV can receive any of the ch 7 channels. They are picked up in the scan but no signal is received. Our main TV in the lounge picks up ch 7 no problems and prior to getting the tuner card, I had an analogue TV with set-top box that could also receive ch 7 that used this antennae point. So I don't think it's signal related.

I am about to test the signal strength now with a Hauppauge utility from their support team. Apparently as it's dual tuner, the signal is split between the 2 tuners.

Yes, it is an Antec P280 ... why? :S PSU is Corsair though...
I've seen a similar problem previously, caused by interference from the pulse count on the Antec case fan... completely knocking out the channel 6 (7 digital) frequency.
This was checked with several Antec fans, in different computers.
The fix was to alter the fan speed.
If you can select a different fan speed, try it.
If you can't alter the fan speed, try disconnecting it to see if your Ch7 reception returns.
If it does, but you can't adjust the fan speed.... replace the fan (but not with another Antec fan).

Thanks MTV, I'll check that and see if it's the culprit. Not sure if it's something that can be edited in the BIOS or I have to open the hood. I'll check BIOS first...
Some of the fans have a selector switch on them... usually high, medium and low.
