On friday we had a thunder storm between where I live and the transmitter tower at yatpool in northwest victoria. I was watching cricket on the computer using DNTV Live!Pro card, when the signal from the transmitter droped out.. "the analog tv in other room dropped out same time." I shut the comuter down ,when rebooted later DNTV Llive could only get all of the ABC channels nothing else, the FM radio was still working ok. I decieded to rescan no good., then reinstalled card and software but now wont lock on to any signal or FM either now..have I cooked my "goose" rolleyes.gif miss the digital cricket coverage. sad.gif

It sure can. I would remove the card and install it in a different PCI slots and see what happens, if it odes not work, then surely it has been damaged. You may be able to claim on insurance, if covered smile.gif

I've accidentally allowed another PCI card touch the tuner whilst it was in use and blue sparks came out... the card still works perfectly fine though
