My System Specs


The tuner card will not be able to change channels on the Bell box.

I don't have Bell Expressvue, but you will need to make sure that you have something called an IR Blaster that transmits signals from your computer to the box (basically, the computer needs to act as a remote control, and transmit signals from the IR Blaster to the Bell box). Problem is, IR Blasters seem to be a PITA to setup.

I have bought one of these, that has not shown up yet: USB-UIRT Home This will allow me to control the channels on the digital box properly and reliably.

Next question is how does the Bell box display the video signal to the computer? In this case, you need to use coax or use a connector that is an output on the Bell box, and the same input on the tv tuner. I am not sure what options you have on your Bell box.
