I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and a Pinnacle USB (80e) USB TV Adapter. Which works fine with the Software provided by Pinnacle, (TV Center Pro) using QAM Clear. However, I want to use the USB TV adapter with Windows 7 Media Center. When I go into the WMC TV signal options, it doesn't show QAM Clear as an option. Can some one please tell me how to display the QAM option? And why is it hidden to begin with?

That being said, I am going to try and load the 32-bit drivers and on Windows 7 64-bit and see what happens.

Best of luck!
