Hello,
I just bought a Medion MD 8800 with a NVidia Geforce 6700XL video card and a built in TV function: 4 TV connections (2x DVB-2 and 2x Analog)
According to the system info it is the famous Philips SAA7131.
Tried all setting as suggested in several topics. The sound does work.
During scanning flashes of channels are visible, not one is picked up though.
Since Chris TV is so much better then the standard TV program (fassst channel switching, resizing, etc.) I hope you can help me soon.

The log:

Same problem... tried every possible combination of settings.... with me there are no images at all in an always black scan screen.
As a satisfied customer, I've never had problems with this and previous versions of ChrisTV software on my old 2002 Medion machine.

Here are my driver settings at the new Medion MD8800:
Video capture source: 713x BDA Analog Capture
TV Tuner: 713x BDA Analog TV Tuner (grayed)
Tv Audio: 713x BDA Analog TV Audio (grayed)
TV Crossbar: 713x BDA Analog Xbar (grayed)
MPEG HWencoder: blank
Audio capture source: Realtek HD Audio Input

The log of the last trial seems more or less the same as Helen's :-)

Some TV Card drivers are using different TV Frequency tunning, in this case you should try to Enable in Program Settings->Driver Settings->Advanced :

1. Use alternative channel frequency setting ( for some TV Cards)
2. Use special frequency tunning (for some TV Cards - MSI TV@nywhere)

Restart ChrisTV.

One of this settings or both enabled could fix your problem.

Hello Chris,

Tried your suggestions and many other settings again.
The best result I get is when VMR-9 is activated and one or both of the settings you suggested are activated. When I use scanning UPC channel list, the last found channel is visible (channel 183250), without sound. Every time I start ChrisTV the sound is muted.

Regards,
Helen

Unfortunately, none of the advised settings worked for me...

I tried to add a couple of channels manually for testing: add new channel worked correctly... : also the channel list displays the newly added channels, but selecting one results again in the black screen where the channel name is displayed for a few seconds... then disapears; leaving the screen dead (black). There is no sound either

So, I tried several settings in the Video Rendering and Improvement section, also tried to copy every setting from my "ChrisTV-working" old Medion... no result... there is still the black screen without any picture or sound..

Chris, what more can I do?

Hello Chris,

First: thank you for your fast replies, that's very nice.

I tried more or less the same as Trilobite. No results, except for the one channel.
In Germany there are some discussions about the Medion MD 8800. Hopefully your German is better than mine. See http://www.sceneo.de/phpBB2/viewtopic.p ... 19cbf433e5
The card has a switch and when I understand the discussion well that might be the solution (for analog connection).

Looking forward to hear from you.
Regards,
Helen.

In Main Menu->Driver Settings->TV Tuner device, try to change the channels.

Have you tried to add 2 channels manually ? or when you try to change tv frequency or finetune a channel, do you see any TV image changing ?

Does the TV card software work correctly ?
Have you tried other 3rd party softwares ? Did any of them work ?

Please provide a download link for the tv card driver.
