My guess is i bought a crap tv tuner card from #bay..

A dbox has no RF modulator on board.
You need a scart to cinch adapter or a scart to svidio adapter depending which inputs you pc card has.
Its maybe easier to watch via a network connection.

If the card has a s-video input use the TV scart socket at the box and set the video settings to svideo. You have also to select the svideo input inside the software for the card.
You should unplug your box before you start playing with the scart plug.
