Help troubleshooting HTPC antenna signal for HD channels - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I dont think its your antenna if you can time shift and it blue screens when you hit the record then there is a problem with WMC. It could be the Card but I dount that since its only when you record and the card doesn't control that. Do you have another machine to test the card in temporarily. If it works in another PC then I would reload your PC.

Sorry to necro this thread but I have the same exact issue. I agree with most of the other responses. OP, if you're still here by any chance, I'm betting that your antenna signal strength is fine and I believe this is a WMC channel settings issue. I found this solution online somewhere but have not been able to try it out yet for myself. I realize this is an old thread but hopefully this helps the OP or anyone else having this issue.

(Or, if anyone reads this and knows of a different solution, please post. Thanks!)

From the post:
**********************************************************************************************************************************************************
"The issue appears to be the Win7MCE will hold onto MULTIPLE digital frequencies of the same channel and in many cases will prioritize the LAST channel frequency found as the highest priority, regardless of signal strenght.

In my case frequencies 15 and 44 were both channel 5. By default frequency 44 was stored as the highest priority while it only had a 55% signal strength, but frequency 15 at 100% signal strength. This is the channel that MCE will display in the Signal Strength screen as well as the channel frequency it will use if you are pressing record and are able to view the channel. BUT it is using frequency 44 in my example to watch Live TV, which of course resulted in a No Signal or No Tuner error.

Do not bother with registry hacks and such. They are uneeded.

Here is how to solve it.

Go to Tasks > Settings > TV > Guide > Edit Channels and select the Name of the channel that you are having issues with, you will be provided with the
Edit Channel function from where you can choose
Edit Source.

It is at this location that you can easily and quickly de-select the frequencies that are poor and move the higher quality channels to the top of the priority. You can use your mouse or arrow over the different channels with your remote and can see the Signal Strength of each frequencie.

Disable the low frequency channels and move the high frequency channels to the top.

This fixed my problem and now I am golden."
