    So there are these STB TV Tuner Cards - model 6000704 - that were used a lot in the late 90s. I have one lying around, and I'm trying to make it work with an Windows XP machine. The only driver that makes the hardware work on XP is a generic driver, which seems to work fine(I got it from driverguide.com), as the hardware shows up in device manager correctly. But since STB was bought out, you can no longer download their TV Tuner Software. So I downloaded a third-party TV Tuner application, and tried using it with my TV Tuner card. I plugged a cable line into the tuner card, fired up the application, it didn't seem to have a problem initializing the card and stuff, but the tv image was just blue. No channels showed up, even though the cable was plugged into the TV tuner card.

    Has anyone dealt with this stuff before? Is there any way of making it work in XP?
