Default HTPC OTA Recording Issues

Hi everyone,

New to the forums, looks like a great community.

I've been trying to build a basic HTPC that will act as an access point for internet video and also as a DVR for my over-the-air digital signal I get in Toronto.

I have built a machine with:
-Core i3-540 @ 3.06GHz
-MSI H55M-ED55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
-Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Tuner
-an old 80GB hard drive for the time being
-4GB DDR3 RAM
-Windows 7 Ultimate

I have tried Windows Media Center and even purchased SageTV (months ago, before they were bought by Google). Both programs say that it cannot find a signal, though when I connect my antenna directly to my TV I get 10 channels crystal clear. I then thought the problem was with my tuner card, spoke with the manufacturer and ended up returning it for a replacement. Got the new one and had no change.

By this point I feel I've tried so many options that I'm feeling it's almost not worth it anymore. ALMOST.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
