Purchased HP Pavillion dv7-3188cl laptop because I believed it would allow me to record TV programs. That was 3 weeks ago. Then ordered the TV Tuner which arrived about 2 weks ago. Had much trouble during tuner setup/install process which MAY have messed up some things on the PC. Anyway I was advised by HP to try tuner on a different computer and it worked OK on a Windows 7 desktop using both the TV antenna and also a coax feed from WOW using ATSC digital.
I tried setup again on the target PC and am getting messages like "No Tuner Available" "Resource being used by Another Program" or words to that effect. Also, during one of the software setups I tried, one message said that if I continued "Playback would stop" and I did not know what playback I had asked for. Finally, when I ask Windows to safely remove hardware, the Tuner shows up, but then it cannot be released because another program has it. Could my many installations of the driver, setups on Media Center and HP Media Smart, etc. be all tangled up?
I want to be able to setup a analog cable feed, but I am also having the same problems if I try a digital cable connection.
