Toshiba Satellite A500 TV Card

Hi there,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A500, which "claims" to have an inbuilt TV card.   It has the hole in the side of it to plug the aerial into, but when I open media center and try to 'set up TV' it says I do not have any TV hardware installed.

I find this remarkable because I am looking right at it.

I have searched around on the toshiba driver website and they conveniently dont have any drivers that have the word "TV" in them.

Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do, besides launching this thing off my balcony.

Thank you.
