Hi all, let me preface my question with the following information.
I have a Sony VAIO PC with a built in tuner. Originally, I had DirecTV hooked in through the s-video connection on my tuner and Media Center would control channel changing (IR blaster) and guide features. DirecTV set it up for us, so I do not know how it was done.
Recently, I had FIOS put in, and using the same connections, the WMC worked just fine. However, I just installed Windows 7, so my previous configuration has been erased.
I am trying to set up WMC to receive its signal from the Verizon FIOS box over s-video, but I can't find any TV setting control other than setting up a digital tuner.
How do I configure WMC to work with the Verizon FIOS box?
You should be able to choose the cable box from the tuner setup page. According to a setup page from Microsoft:
On the start screen, scroll to Tasks, click settings, click TV, and then click Set Up TV Signal. Follow the steps to connect a TV signal, depending on the type of tuner or tuners that the cable is connected to, as well as the type of programming to which you subscribe.
