...we have replaced her with this bag of marbles instead.
So I was gone the last few days because I was at my cousin's wedding. (Congrats Richard and Joyce!) Pretty fun, but also a bit hard when you're single.
To get to the point, I have some bad news to convey. So we got the computer last week and did all the setup (while I was preparing to go away for the weekend.) Then the harsh nature of reality struck, and the tuner hardware just stopped working.
At first we thought it was a bad install or the drivers. But from what I read of the error message, it is more like the hardware itself is either broken, not powered, or the usb cord is bad, or stuck in a busy mode and not accessable from the computer. It's pretty crazy. We even moved it back to the netbook in a desperate attempt to cap something, but it didn't work.
Sorry, I know this isn't what you guys want to hear after the successful drive last week. All I can do is ask people to be patient as we bang our heads together and try to form some solution to this problem.
Because I was gone, I also am behind on answering e-mails. If you sent me anything in the last week, I'll probably be answering them this week.
