What tuner are we looking at here? Also, did you install the drivers for it? If you don't have Media Center Edition of XP or Home premium/Ultimate Vista, you will need to use their software to view input from the card.

Where did you pull the card off of? Also, the four pins connect to the motherboard, idk if your mobo supports it or not.

Ok well if you tried putting it into another computer it wont work, because its set-up to be used in the dell computers, and they won't let you use it in another computer. Also, try installing the drivers.

Yeah dell is weird like that. You cannot really use a piece of their hardware on other custom rigs. I tried taking the sound card from one, but that did not work out at all for me.
