AutoTune Method

Summary

Fine tunes the specified channel by scanning for the most precise signal for that channel.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public int AutoTune( 
   int Channel 
) 
Public Function AutoTune( _ 
   ByVal Channel As Integer _ 
) As Integer 
public: 
int AutoTune(  
   int Channel 
)  

Parameters

Channel
Channel number for which to scan.

Return Value

nonzero indicates found, zero indicates not found

Remarks

Fine tunes the specified channel by scanning for the most precise signal for that channel. This method maps the TV channel to a frequency and searches for the most precise frequency for this channel in the area. Calling this method for every channel in a region or country allows you to create a table of channel and frequency information. Once all channels in the region or country have been scanned, use StoreAutoTune to save the channel information. For more detailed information, refer to the Microsoft documentation for IAMTVTuner.AutoTune
