Windows Media Center on Win7 Ultimate not finding TV Channels

Hi, I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 Ultimate. This was fresh install. I purchased a Kaiser Baas usb hd tvstick tuner as it explicitly states it is compatible with Windows 7 Media Center. When I use the included TotalMedia TV software from Kaiser Bass it successfully finds all 38 channels and works correctly.

However in Media Center although it correctly picks up the USB DVB-T TV Stick and goes through the process of scanning for channels it returns no channels.

I am in Sydney, Australia

If you have any advice as to known problems with scanning channels in Australia using Win 7 Media Center or any other advice that would be appreciated.

Which version of Win 7 did you install? Australian TV channels are differently coded, so you have to install the Australian version of Win 7 Ultimate. If you installed any other one, that would cause your issue.

Thanks. I actually found the solution. I had installed IceTV EPG before running the scan in MediaCenter. This meant an empty default DB was created which caused issues with the scanning of channels.
