Digital TV is broadcast over the airwaves. To receive Digital TV, a rooftop antenna is recommended in most areas of the U.S. In cities, a bowtie antenna can often be used if positioned
near a window facing the Digital TV broadcaster.
To position the Digital TV antenna, do the following:

be enabled.
Step 8: The new WinTV2000 application
Scanning for channels
When running WinTV2000 for the first time, you
will need to scan for your TV channels. The
WinTV-D board has two coax video connectors:
a Digital TV antenna connector and a
cable TV connector. You will need to scan
for TV channels on each connector.
Use the supplied list of Digital TV stations to find a Digital TV channel which you know
broadcasts in your area. For example, in Cleveland,
WKYC broadcasts Digital TV on channel 2.
Open the Channel Suite Manager. To do this,
click on the Suite button on WinTV2000, or click
on Configure/Channels/SuiteManager on the
WinTV32 application. Then double click on Input
Sources. Click on Tuner to see the Digital TV
antenna configuration.
Then click Add. Enter the Digital TV Channel
Number (for example: 2 for WKYC in Cleveland)
and the Channel Name. Make sure Broadcast
is set to Antenna, and that Tuner Format is set
to DTV-ATSC. Click Add and then OK.
Now, to get the diagnostics menu to help orient your Digital TV antenna, hold the CTRL
button on your keyboard down while clicking the right

antenna is pointed to the DTV transmitter.
When scanning the Digital TV antenna, set

the Broadcast entry is set to Antenna.
When scanning the cable TV connector, set
the Tuner Format to MN. Make sure the
Broadcast entry is set to CableTV.

Quick Troubleshooting Guide
Note: Our web site has information on installing the WinTV and software updates.
Find installation tips at:
WinTV software updates can be found at:
- Incompatible motherboards
We recommend the use of a motherboard with an Intel chipset because some older motherboards do not fully support the WinTV .We have software updates on our web site which
will fix incompatibilities found with several VIA and SIS-based motherboards. Please see in the Tips section.
- Poor image when running WinTV in 256-color mode
Many VGA’s cannot run WinTV in 256-color mode. Instead, run in 16-bit or 24-bit color mode.
- No TV audio from your PC’s Left and Right speaker
Be sure your PC’s audio mixer LineIn setting is not muted, and at a reasonable volume level.
If the LineIn setting is not muted, you can verify that the WinTV card is working by connecting self-amplified speakers directly to the A/V cable’s 1/8” miniplug. Use the supplied
Adapter if necessary.
Basic audio setup
To configure the WinTV-D audio
for your speaker configuration,
click on Configure / Audio.
Setting up the channels
After you have scanned for channels, you
can add the channel names. To do this,
click on the Suite button on WinTV2000,
or click on Configure/Channels/SuiteManager on the WinTV32 application.
Set Audio Mixer Inputs to
WinTV Volume. You should
hear sound from a TV channel. If
you do not hear audio, refer to
the next section: “Quick Troubleshooting Guide.”
Then double click on Input Sources.
- System lockups or error messages when running WinTV2000
Some VGA cards have memory conflicts with WinTV. To fix this, try switching PCI slots.
Also, you can increase the memory range used by the WinTV board in Device
Manager. To do this, look under Sound, video and game controllers, double click
on the Hauppauge video section, click on Resources, unclick Use Automatic
settings and double click on Memory range. In the Edit memory range dialog box,
there are small up/down arrows next to Value. Click the little up arrow a couple of times.
Make sure there are no conflicts. Then click OK and then OK again. When it says Created a forced configuration, click Yes. Then reboot your PC.
Then click Advanced Audio.
Chose Tuner for the Digital TV antenna, or Tuner2 for cable TV. Click on the
desired channel, then click on Edit.
Change the ChannelName to the
name of the station. Then click OK.

Since Digital TV is broadcast over the air, it is necessary to position the antenna to point at
the Digital TV transmitter. We have included a utility in the WinTV application to help position
the TV antenna.
Step 7: WinTV Software installation
Configuring Surround sound
- Poor TV Reception or Not detecting all channels:
Poor TV reception is generally the result of an insufficiently strong TV signal. When using a
'roof-top' antenna, an aerial booster may be required. If you find that some or all of the channels have not been detected, you can insert channels manually.
