    okay, is the card definetly getting power to it, as your power supply might not be supplying enough power to the mobo but i would of thought it would, maybe its a defect card, try it in another pc and see what happens

    Do you mean a PVR ? Are you useing cable TV "in"
    My Winfast PCI card works ok with cable TV in to my monitor.
    Tell me more about Philips 713x.I shouldn't have to search to find out.
    Do you mean PC to TV ?

    Wrong Forum i think !

    BTW i think this is the wrong forum to attract replys.
    I'd use Audio and Video.
    CPU's,Chipsets and Mobos have no connection to this problem.
    ;)

    Name the device brand and model

    I have been watching Cable TV on my computer for over 2 years.
    It works fine.I have Rogers Cable.
    My PVR is a Winfast PCI TV Card , TV2000 XP Series Model 3.
    It records TV but not games,i doubt if any do.
    What type of TV connection do you have ?
