I installed the MSI DigiVox ATSC w QAM USB stick. Live TV setup and channel scanning worked fine. But then when I try to use the tuner in Windows Media Center, and play live TV, I get stuttering video and audio for a few moments before this message is displayed:

"Files needed to display video are not installed or not working correctly. Please restart Windows Media Center or restart the computer." I have of course tried both.

WMC plays back movie files from my HDD without any problems.

One symptom is when I go through guided setup, and choose 5.1, the Test button does not result in any audio output. Even though WMC's system sounds and file playback audio works fine.

I have Win 7 64 bit, all updates. Intel i5 2500K integrated video (HD Graphics 3000) - latest drivers installed. Connecting via HDMI.

I tried the exact same tuner on a Shuttle based x86 Win7 Ultimate 32-bit system, with a discrete ATI video cards, and everything worked fine.

1) Is there a problem with the 64-bit drivers, or
2) Is there a problem with MSI Digi Vox and Intel HD 3000 graphics?
3) Something else?

Thanks!

If I connect the HTPC directly to my Samsung DLP, it works fine.

There must be a problem with the combination Intel HD3000, Onkyo TX-SR605 and Windows Media Center that I probably will never be able to solve  :biggthumbsdown:

EDIT: So I tried a discrete ATI video card, and had the same problem. Ergo, it must be that WMC cannot handshake or communicate with my Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver.

EDIT2: Also, my old 32-bit HTPC connecting via the same receiver, there is no problem. This is so frustrating. I think I will re-install Windows 7 64-bit + all drivers, and try WMC7 audio + Live TV before installing anything else.

Finally!

Did a clean install, windows update, made sure all low level and chipset
drivers were installed. Verified Audio and Video. Went through the WMC
guide scanning channels etc and now, finally it works.

Must have been some windows odddity installation order driver problem..

Whew!  :rolleyes_anim:
