Comcast little ondemand boxes setup for vista media center

Recommended Posts

Ok here gos saw the free promo for the little ondemad boxes and figured i would set up my computer as a second tv using my tv tuner card

(its a Hauppauge WinTV PVR 150) the only problem is after I activate the ondemand box no picture.  Google a help ? to see how to set it up and the only thing i could find is using a set top box and the media center remote.  I don't have the media center remote so here is the work around.

Run through normal set up for you tv signal when it asks you if you have a set top box check no

then it will search for your cable signal most people will have to signal close to them one will be analog the other digital

select the digital signal let set up do it thing

once set up is finished set your channel to 3 and use the remote that came with your little on demand box

and presto digital signal and media center with the little ondemad box
