Windows Media Center "Tuner not available" error message

lannie1234 asked on
My TV tuner was working great then all of a sudden it's not.  Whenever I try to watch TV, I get "tuner not available.  The tuner in currently in use by another application or is not working".  There are no other programs running. 
Not sure what is going on.

Hello, Lannie1234

Check your Device Manager for any problems. Go to Start, type “device manager” in the search box and press enter. Check if any item is unknown or has a yellow Exclamation /!\ next to it.

If so, what is the error?

We look forward to hearing back from you.

If you can't fix it with duct tape, you haven't used enough.
