Question No Digital TV Stations with my new TV tuner!

hey guys!

I am using Windows Media Center in Vista Ultimate with my new TV tuner. It runs all of my regular cable analog channels fine, and when I run the signal strength thing to test signals of my HD digital channels, it recognizes all of them, however when I try to open them in the actual guide/liveTV,

I get: "no tv signal"... It makes no sense! Like I said, analog works fine

Also, in my other media center software, the HD channels work....

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Most current TV tuners do not support HD or digital channels. This will kill us in '09 when all TV goes digital, we will need analog converters to make our cards still work.

It's this tuner,
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16815116009

It has digital support, I can get HD using the software provided by the CD, but it should work in vista media center
