    have you tuned the receiver?

    just right click in the tv window... go to setup and then tune... any channels that are being picked up by your receiver will show up... if you don't have cable it will only show terrestrial channels...

    I did something dumb with my new card. It came set to Cable as the source and I was using an Antenna like you. I was only gettng 1 or 2 channels til I figured it out and changed the card to Antenna.

    Check if thats the problem.

    I have 3 connectors... s-video... composite and cable/analog input...

    I basically select the analog input and go ahead and auto-scan for channels and have not had any problems with tuning thus far...

    that thing is designed for dual-monitor support... dual-vga... no dvi...

    to the right of the cd's... the little cable there has the dual vga connectors... it plugs into the custom display output connector and voila... you have your display :D
