ASUS P7131 TvTuner Problem HELP!!

  1. Hello!!
    I have got an ASUS P7131 Hybrid Tv Tuner with the latest drivers from the ASUS site and PowerCinema 5. When I watch TV with the Analog antenna, everything is ok. But when I use the Digital antenna the channels run extremely slowly with the pixels crashing all the time. I have also used the ASUS TSSI without any difference.
    Can anyone help me please?

    My computer is: Mobo: ASUS P5N-E SLI, CPU: P4 3,2 GHz, RAM: 2GB Corsair XMS2 800 MHz, Video Card: nVIDIA 8600GT 256 MB

    Thanks in advance!

    You might need a larger power supply. What are you running?

    Replace the Q-Tec with something better... Maybe a 12v dual rail model other than the Q-Tec brand. My web searches turned up nothing except that Q-Tec is junk. Are you located in Europe or the US?

    Ok bobo1704,
    PC power supplies in Europe and the US are different. A good brand in Europe, may not be good in the US and vice versa. I still think that a power supply change would be helpful in this matter

    ok my friend.I am going to search it more, because from what I have also heard, Q-Tec is one of the worst PSU available. Thanks for your help!!
