Hauppauge HVR-1800 vs Win7MC vs Digital TV in Canada

Post#1 » Tue Mar 19, 2013 3:16 am

After installing a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1800 in a Windows 7 64bit Home Premium system, I find that for my location in Canada that Media Center will only offer me the analogue tuner option for an antenna input. It also indicates that it found an incompatible tuner that is not supported in my region - Hauppauge WinTV 885 BDA Tuner/Demod.

Driver-wise, the system reports - Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1800 (Model 78xxx, Combo ATSC/QAM).

When I configure my location for Erie PA, it makes the digital tuner available and I can receive 1 digital TV channel ... great, at least it works!

Question ... how does one configure Windows 7 Media Center for a digital antenna input in Canada with the Hauppauge HVR-1800?

Many thanks (in advance).

Seems the problem is caused by Windows 7 and Media Center ...

Further research brought out the solution at:
