Default USB TV tuner port usage - 06-07-2010, 03:31 PM


So I upgrade the Mini 9 to a Runcore 16GB ssd and a full install of Windows 7. All is well and it is much nicer than XP. Added a usb tuner, a generic one from ebay and it works perfectly in Media center but only on the right USB port. On other laptops I can be watching TV and unplug the tuner hot and move to any other port and it warns you no tuner then reconnects and goes back to tv. On the 9 the left ports seem different. The tuner is recognized in device manager but no go in media center, tuner not found. If I try to reconfigure on the left ports it hangs up media center. Can someone confirm for me these ports are not all the same? Yes, the left ports work fine to read from external CD, flash drives etc.
