Hi I have my computer with windows 7 installed on it. I also have a ati hdtv wonder card installed. I bought a 23" monitor and now would like to run the video from my satellite receiver to my computer. I don't need anything fancy like guides or pvr or anything like that I just want to get the video and possibly audio. I tried to set it up through media center in windows 7 but not seeing anything just saying no video found then I tried a program called watch hdtv but same thing set up the card but still no video. Do I need a different card or am I going about this the wrong way?

Well, I see others are using that card with Windows 7 and no problems. They did not even have to install drivers, Win7 recognized it. But that was 32-bit Win 7. What version are you using?

Well, then my guess would be the card. Do you see the device in Device Manager?

Well, I am afraid I am at a loss. If you are 100% certain you have a signal going into the card, then it seems like it should be working.
