Default Help with TV Tuner!

I'm not sure where to put this but I just got a Pinnacle PCTV Pro USB TV Tuner for my computer but I am having some problems getting it to work. Basically, every time I try to get it to scan for channels it comes up with nothing but internet radio (which I don't care about). Then when I try to start the player, it says "No TV Devices are available for playback" and then "Channel Could not Be Displayed". I installed all of the software (twice now), have restarted my computer, made sure all coax cables involved are working, but still i'm getting nothing. I have a coax cable running from the wall of my dorm to a splitter to the tuner. The TV connected to the splitter works perfectly. What am I doing wrong?
My rig (getting old):

Rosewill black case with 400W PSU (420W Thermaltake on the way)
MSI Nforce4-ultra Neo4 platnium
evga Nvidia 6600gt pci-e
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ winchester
Corsair ValueSelect 1 GB (2x512) RAM
Western Digital 80 GB SATA HDD (200 GB IDE coming soon)
AOpen combo drive
17\" LCD LG Monitor
Cheap Keys, Dell Mouse, no speakers

Gig \'em and God bless
