Hi all

I am running windows xp up to date
Windows xp media center edition 2005 version 5.1.2715.2773
update rollup 2

I have a HDHomerun Dual tuner that is working with the software that is installed in the Homerun set up (quicktv).

When I go to use the set up in windows media center it says "tuner not available, please restart the computer".

I have goggled potential fixes and can't seem to find anything that will work.

Any help would be appreciated,

My System

MCE 2005 requires an Analog/NTSC TV tuner adapter to be present before it will allow a digital tuner to be detected. Check that a Analog/NTSC TV tuner is installed and working.
The “MCE Rollup 2” update is required:
Microsoft Download Center
According to their Setup Guide Quickstart Guide – HDHomeRun DUAL MCE required that there is a analog TV tuner installed on the computer before it will recognize the Digital Tuner. Try updating the MCE Rollup and see if that helps. Or post in Siliconsdust's Forum

Thank you for the reply.

I spoke to tech support at SiliconDust and they didn't mention anything about needing to install an analogue tuner first. I am told it has something to do with Microsoft .NET framework 4 not working with 2005 WMC. I a going to try and install an older version of the HDHomerun software and delete Microsoft .NET framework 4 and see how that goes.
