TV Tuner Card reception loss

Initially when the house switched over to TW digital cable, my PC's cable tv tuner was able to recieve both the standard and HD channels, but in recent months the HD channels have vanished.  Any advice on how troubleshoot to find the possible cause?

For clarity's sake, my system is a desktop with a Hauppauge WinTV HVR 2250 tuner installed, and I've been using Windows Media Center to watch live TV with it.  I do recall that not every HD channel accessible via the cable box was available on my PC, but I was able to get the HD versions of 6, 8, 10, 11, and 13 until recently.

Re: TV Tuner Card reception loss

Where are you?

there was qam ch's by zip code lookups.

But,They're probably gone as TWC is switching over everything to encrypted QAM.

 Do you still get them on the NTSC analog channels from ch 2-50?

 

 

They may be moved onto  new qam channels. Try doing a rescan, I don't like their interface to media center, some doesn't transfer.
