You need to upgrade the firmware of your card, look at the Pinnacle website
for it. From what I understand, there is a small microcontroller for the
infrared remote sensor on the board, the original firmware of which had a
bug which caused it to disturb the I2c-bus at some point. When this
happens, the tuner on the board can no longer be controlled and reception
is impossible.
