Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

HP pc with built-in tv tuner

\015 I live in Oklahoma City. I bought a HP pc with a built-in tv tuner last year. I use indoor antenna and the tv tuner worked perfect until the television stations started changing to digital. I am still able to scan some of the tv signals but three of the channels (9, 5, 13) tv signal were missing. Please let me know what I do to improve the problem? I don't have cable or outdoor antenna. Thank you very much.\015\012\015\012Jack Johnson\015

Answers :

Have 9, 5 and 13 turned entirely digital as yet, so as to leave you without their signal?

From what you say, the tv tuner in your HP receives analog signals better than or instead of digital signals the stations you can receive may be analog while 9, 5, and 13 may have dispensed with their analog transmitters.

They don't have to until June, since the changeover was delayed from the original February cutoff date by Act of Congress. It is actually easier to receive a digital signal than an equally powered analog equivalent so the fact that your system worked so well with analog signals bodes well for the efficiency of your indoor antenna arrangement, though you may have to replace the possibly analog receiver in your pc with a usb digital thumbdrive like model to continue after the changeover is final.

Here's a tip...if the receiver in your pc resembles a square aluminum tin can, mounted on a PCI card in one of your slots, it is very likely analog and not digital.

Usually these receivers (or actually TUNERS) are heavily sheilded while digital receivers do not require the same amount of sheilding to avoid interference with other components, which is the concept of the big square tin can, that a digital tuner does not require.
