I have an XPS 15 (L501X) laptop with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M 2GB graphics with TV Tuner. It includes the AVerMedia H339 Hybrid Analog/ATSC with Driver version 188.8.131.52. The driver appears to be up-to-date. The system has 8GB of RAM and an i7-740QM processor. I've connected the over-the-air digital antenna, that comes with the latop, to the system. I followed the setup guide instructions and Windows Media Center instructions to configure the system to be able to receive over the air live digital TV signals. I cannot receive any TV signal, for any channel. Media Center is configured for the TV Signal Configuration "Digital Antenna (ATSC): Digital Terrestrial Lineup (1 tuner)". I live in proximity to New York City so I would not expect signal strength to be an issues. I'd expect to receive some signal. I've tried reconfiguring several times, but get thhe same results. Can anyone help with any suggestions on how I can get this to work? thanks, Rich
I have more or less the same problem.
Same laptop (L501X) . Driver WAS the same (version 184.108.40.206). It didn't work. I found on UK Dell supportsite a driver 220.127.116.11. It still doesn't work. Windows Media Center says that the DVBT-card is not ready or accessible.
Are there other programs I can use to watch TV ?
Thanx in advance for anyone to help me...
I have the same laptop and problems with the Avermedia TV tuner for german DVB-T. It doesn't find any TV channel. Are there any solutions for this problem? Thank you.
For those of you who "don't expect TV reception to be a problem", try connecting up an antenna to your regular TV.
If you are not able to pick up any channels on your TV, then why would you expect this tuner to pick up signals that your TV tuner can't????
No problems with DVB-T channels and the regular TV, only the TV Tuner Card can't find the digital channels. I think it's a hardware problem of the avermedia card!?
Hello Rich, I have the same problem with the german DVB-T channels. Did you find any solutions in the last time? Thanks, Andy :-)
I have also a XPS 15 with the Avermedia DVB/tuner and in windows media center it don´t work. Driver reinstalled but did give any solution
I heard that the avermedia products have problems with vista and windows 7 with 4GB memory and more!? Why DELL installs these products in XPS laptops?
I have a new XPS L701X AverMedia H339 Hybrid Analog/ATSC/QAM card.
And I am not able to get the TV tuner to display any channels... when I run the Signal strength tool I only get 1 or 2 bars for about 20 digital channels. Not enough to get a picture!
I have also tried to connect to my local cable (Time Warner (Ventura, Ca.))... I am able to get through the setup process al the way though to the final test of which channel to tune to. It picks channel 3 and the small preview window opens ane I am able to change channels for the test. When I click on Finalize I get a message saying that there is no IR conenction.
I checked the Set Top box and there IS an IR port on the back. A call to Time Warner TS and they tell me that the IR port is NOT supported by them.
I feel like I got the royal screw in purchasing the tuner....
I have spend a half day with Dell's TS and he has given up too...
If anyone has a solution then I'd love to hear from you.
