TV tuner and Cablevision box incompatible

\015 I purchased the gateway LX 6200 desktop computer with media center and built in TV tuner. Cablevision, Gateway, a best-buy store computer guru have no idea how to help me. The media center works but has a terrible blurry picture, but DVD's and Hulu programs have a fine picture. I wish some one could help me figure this out, I don't want to spend hundreds calling Gateway answers, but I will buy a device that can be used to get the signal strength to HD quality. Please help.\015

Answers :

Thanks for your update ertbs500, you may be able to just run an HDMI from that cable box to the PC but I have never done that and I have never done a TV tuner card either.

Low signal strength makes no sense at all seeing as how the coaxiel is plugged DIRECTLY in to the tuner card. Low signal would be from wireless. Maybe it is talking about wireless and somehow the coaxle is not transmitting signal for some reason, or the PC is not seeing it. Sorry I can not be of more help! I would look online for forums or guide on how to set up Media Center for your tuner card.
You need to go through the Setup in Media Center. Open Media Center. Click on "TV and Movies" and then "Set up TV"
Good luck.

When Word documents are attached to an e-mail, most if the time our computer won't let us open them. The box comes up. We click, ''open.'' Then it starts saving it with the green moving line. Once that's done, the box disappears and the e-mail is left as it was originally sent. What's the problem, do you think? And sometimes it opens and there are just little gray empty boxes.
