Trouble is, the Digital Cable Advisor will not run. When I click on its icon in the Extras Gallery, I get an error message that says:
Code: Select all
INVALID APPLICATION Unable to launch ""
I've managed to get most of the channels to play except HBO; even other pay channels run OK.
Tried downloading the DCA from Microsoft directly and ran the installer -- no luck.
When I go to Settings --> TV --> TV Signal --> Activate Digital Cable, WMC claims that "Your computer is not digital cable ready. You will not be able to set it up for use with a CableCARD." However, the CableCARD did activate successfully online with Verizon and the Ceton Diagnostics can tune just fine to any channel number I enter, but we can't watch HBO.
The PC is from 2009 and was last used in 2016, but it was brought back into service last week for this purpose, and it's up to date with Windows patches. It sports a brand-new Nvidia GTX 1050; I did all the hardware upgrading before installing the Ceton and CableCARD or launching WMC.
What else can I try? Have I missed a step somewhere?
