Mercury TV Tuner card not saving channels

by Grant_G / April 11, 2005 4:13 AM PDT

I have just installed the above tv card, and when I run auto scan, none of the channels are saved, although I see them flash up during the scan. I have tried reinstalling the software/ drivers but no luck. Sometimes it will stop on a channel - mostly it just keeps scanning away until I stop it! Anyone help please? There is NO support from the manufacturers at all.

Problem is still not solved. I emailed kobian tech support as they now have a 'kind of' support on their site but they have been no use so far.

Hey - It Worked! Thanks for the advice. Kobian never bothered to get back to me, and the helpfiles were a waste of time! I wouldn't buy any of their products again for this reason.
