I've been using Windows Media Center on Windows Home Premium for some time now with a single PCTV nanostick T2 and it works great to receive both standard and high def shows.

I've just bought another stick so I can watch and record simultaneously but I'm struggling to get it working.

If I let Windows detect my tuners it takes an age and eventually only finds the DVB-T part of the tuners and consequently only the SD channels.

If I tell Windows to use the two DVB-T tuners and two ClearQAM parts of the tuners it doesn't find any channels at all.

What am I doing wrong? Microsoft say it should support two tuners so what gives?

Check Device Manager for status that both tuners are properly recognized and installed. –  sawdust Sep 18 '13 at 0:48

Just going back to one tuner (the new one), when I ask the tuner to detect TV signals, it finds Digital Antenna (DVB-T) and that other tuners are available but no TV signals were detected for 'PCTV 80e/290e/460e BDA 2875 TVTuner C`. Could that be it? –  Jon Cage Sep 18 '13 at 7:29
