Hauppauge Usb Tv Tuner Driver Issue

Default driver has poor video quality for usb 950/980 hauppauge analog tv tuner, manual install has great quality. Windows 7 does not install the better quality or updated driver for my usb tv tuner even when i use device manager to check for updated driver. It says "the best driver software for your device is already installed". I downloaded software from hauppauge and manually updated the driver using device manager and having it search the drivers folders from the download, and a newer driver was installed.

I can imagine that many users of this particular usb tv tuner might not be aware that there is a better driver available for their device and the video quality can be vastly improved with an update. But the update will not happen without manually downloading and installing the drivers as i have done. I myself had 3 tv tuners, 2 of which plugged into the motherboard and the third being the usb version.

Any recording i did that used the usb tuner had poor video quality (noticeable jaggies - a technical term :-) ), the other tuners had good quality video recordings. So i stopped using the usb tuner, but discovered the new driver many months later and started using it again. Fter switching to the 64 bit version of windows, the internal tv tuners no longer worked unless i set the ram to less than 4 gb of memory. Nyway, i had been using the rc version of windows 7 and only a few days ago have started using windows 7, the retail version.

I was surprised that the video quality was terrible, the jaggies were back, and windows 7 was telling me i had the best drivers already installed. I would think that windows 7 should have offered the better drivers automatically, and until it does, some users may be missing out on better quality tv recording.

Hauppauge Wintv Pvr Pci Ii Driver Compatibility

I have a fairly old computer that i would like to upgrade to windows 7 (i already have the windows 7 ultimate software) and i ran the win 7 compatibility test and received a "check" for all my devices/system except a warning stating that the "current graphics adapter won't support windows aero user interface". From my understanding, this is just a "visual" effect. Can win 7 still run with my current graphics board (hauppage wintv pvr pci ii) but not use the windows aero interface?

Sabrent Usb 2.0 Tv Tuner Problem In Media Center

The tv tuner (hardware) is recognized by windows 7 os 64bits but its driver is registered as not digitally signed (i downloaded it from its manufacturer web site) and the included software installs fine and acknowledges the tuner. It works fine with the software provided but the problem comes when i try to get it to work with the media center. When i go to set up the tv signal, i receive this message:tuner not foundthe tv signal cannot be configured because a tv tuner was not detected. If you have a tuner, ensure it is installed correctly.

Kworld Usb Tv Tuner - Unable To Determine Tv Signal Configuration

Kworld 399u usb tv tuner "unable to determine tv signal configuration" windows 7 media center (64 bit) i have just upgraded my 64 bit vista machine to windows 7 and am no longer able to use my kworld 399u usb tv tuner in media center.

It worked fine under vista, however after upgrading i was asked to set up my tv signals again. After media center runs "examining tv signals" for several minutes, it displays the message "windows media center is unable to determine your tv signal configuration".

I have tried downloading and installing the latest windows 7 drivers from http://uk., but this does not make a difference.

I rolled my machine back to windows vista and the tuner works perfectly again, even after installing the latest drivers.

Conflict Using Hauppauge And Nvidia

I recently installed hauppauge hvr in my new computer which uses a nvidia graphics card. Everything seems to work except the video input (using s-video) from a digital video camera (mounted on a microscope). The picture trough my win tv 7 is split, with the bottom half at the top of the screen and the top half at the bottom, separated by 3 colour bars across the screen. The picture is otherwise in black and white but should be in coulour. A second feed going directly to a tv is fine. Everything works as it should using usb live and windows xp. I am using windows 7 ultimate. We really need this to work as our business depends on it.

Tuner Not Available

In windows 7 media center, i occasionally get the message "tuner not available". The problem goes away after restarting the computer. It can be recording a show, and when the next show comes up, it give me the error message. The device does not have an exclamation mark in device manager, and it has the latest driver as well. It may not be related, but i also get a "low data rate" message sometimes when watching television as well, although this goes away when changing channels. Are there any solutions?

No Tv Tuner Found

I have a new computer running windows 7. My video card is an ati radeon hd 5770 1024mb gddr5.
I neglected to order a tv tuner when i placed the order for the computer, consequently, i've purchased a tv tuner - ati tv wonder hd 650 pci digital & analog tv tuner. The bad news is the tv tuner is for windows vista.

I've downloaded from ati a driver but i am still unable to get the tv to work in my computer. The computer is unable to find the necessary tuner(s). Any suggestions ?

Thanks for the input. I've got the problem fixed. I gave up and removed the tuner card from the computer, re-plugged in everything to the computer and when i turned it on, it showed "tuner driver installed successfully". So, i put the tuner back in and everything is working fine now.

Tv Tuner Problem With Media Center

I upgraded to windows 7 ultimate recently. Media center worked before with vista. Now windows 7 has compatibility problems with my existing conexant 23880 dual input tv tuner. So, a little peeved, i went out and purchased an msi ntsc/atsc digi@nywhere a/d plus tv tuner that is compatible with windows 7. Then, when i try to get windows media center to run the tv setup, i get a message: " tv setup has encountered a serious problem. Select finish to exit, then try again.

If the problem exists, restart windows media center or the computer. " I did both and neither worked. I even had to run mcupdate.exe before i could get as far as the tuner. What a disaster. How can microsoft say a tv tuner is compatible with windows 7, yet it doesn't work in media center. Is there a guru out there who can help me? The tuner works in msi's program.

Media Center No Tuner Error

Windows media center does not see my ati avstream analog cature (tv) card. My system is up to date with respect to drivers. My nero 8. 0. 4. 0 software can see this tv card and play every channel i select. (Nb. : There is no software conflict here). All of a sudden (three days ago) i get a 'no tuner' error from 'windows media center" and i followed the instructions to 'restart tv setup'. - No success; i still have the 'no tuner' error.

Yesterday i re-installed windows 7 - no change; i can't get wmc to grab a tv channel - 'no tuner'. - The tv guide is there but no tuner. Again i have to mention that my tuner does work with nero, so why does it not work with wmc. Both worked well together for many months now(until feb. 19, 2010).

Will A Pcie Tv Tuner Card That Works With Vista Work With Win 7 ?

I have just recently gotten a new windows seven 64-bit home premium acer computer, and i would like to use windows media center to its fullest. I wanted to get a tv and fm radio tuner. I have been looking all over amazon and only found one that actually says that it will work with windows seven. Most of the cards that i did find didn't mention windows seven at all, but said that it would work with windows vista all that i need to know is if an internal pci or pcie tv/fm tuner would work with windows seven though it was made for windows vista.

Usb Driver Issues

When i attempt to plug in a usb storage device, be it an external hard drive, an ipod, or a usb memory stick, windows tells me it's trying to install the driver, but then quickly shifts to saying "device driver software was not successfully installed. " When i click on this balloon, it says that the device driver couldn't be installed. After a bit of research, i went to my device manager, which had the name of the thing i was trying to get working (in this case, a freeagent xtreme external hard drive), but the little usb symbol next to it had a yellow caution symbol.

Right clicking on it, i tried to update the software by having windows search automatically for the driver software. Soon, it came back telling me that "the best driver software for your device is already installed", and showed the driver as the usb mass storage device. Only, the hard drive is still not working, and any attempts to update the driver only serve to tell me that the mass storage device is up-to-date. Looking at the properties for the device, the device status box says to "reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18). "

Doing so goes back again to tell me that the mass storage device driver is already installed. My keyboard and mouse are both usb, and they work fine, no matter what usb port i connect them to. Yet, these problems persist for any storage device i try, on any usb port i try. Any help is appreciated!

Usb Driver Malfunction

Usb driver malfunction (win 7 problem) - ? Randomly renewing itself? A usb device will disconnect and connect momentarily (within about 3-10 min of use ) with out any physical changes happening. It only happens to all my windows 7 computers. It is more common with usb printers, usb mass storage devices, and usb mice so far. It doesn't happen to all the devices connected, just one of them, for example: on computer.

I have - usb printer, usb mouse, usb flash drive, usb hdd (the only one affected is the usb hdd); computer b - usb mouse, usb printer, usb keyboard, usb flash drive (the only one affected is the usb mouse); computer c - "same setup" (only the usb printer is affected). I have determined it is not a hardware issue, it is something with windows 7 i can't explain.

Usb Driver Not Recognized

I keep getting error message "usb driver not recognized" every three seconds? And it does not identify which one has malfunctioned! Normally, the only one attached is my mouse. Printer (canon mx100 series) won't work! Everything is hooked up, driver downloaded (from canon) and it still just won't work. I had a canon sent to me with this laptop. (Which worked, finally) i am not a novice either, been working with and on others computers for over 25 years!

Running windows vista home premium program and trying to use outlook express. Being told windows live has taken over as the new outlook, however, keep being told to sign up for hotmail. When you do? You keep being told to sign up for hotmail? Then it'll tell you that you have no inbox (and you never get to your email even though its telling you you have many emails sent to you already).

This is so awesome (or is it awful?) Think its time for a mac rather than a pc.

Problem With Usb Driver From Ms

On two different (brand new) computers, with fresh installs of ms win7 (x64 enterprise ed. ), The usb drivers (from microsoft) somehow. Unsigned themselves. Thus making it impossible to use a usb based keyboard and mouse w/ a regular boot. I must have my users press f8 to disable the digital driver signing check (which i would rather not make them do for several reasons).

Is there any way to re-sign the drivers, or re-download them or something?  I've tried taking the system back to previous states and downloading drivers from windows update with no success.

Cannot Uninstall A Usb Device Driver

I tried to install a usb dual serial port on this window 7 computer and it corrupted an exsisting usb driver. I can see the device i when i look in the device manager and in "programs and features" but i can't uninstall it. The uninstall function asks for an update file which i don't have (the iar development tool is a single install). If i could uninstall this "driverx for msp-fet430if" then i could uninstall / re install the complete program. How can i get window 7 to just uninstall this driver?

Fuji Finepix F31fd Usb Driver

Currently running win7 pro x64 (via ieee membership) and installed a gamut of programs and devices (and so far everything works) except for my digital camera. I can install the program (fiji finepix viewer) but the usb driver it uses to recognize the camera does not install/will not work. I've tried fuji's site and came up fruitless. Fuji's line of cameras do not just plug in and come up as a removable drive like others; it requires their exif program, usually running in the taskbar, before plugging it in (and turning it on). Is anyone aware of a compatible driver or of a procedure to remedy this?

Alfa Rt3070 Usb Driver Disabled

I have an alfa networks usb wifi card model awus036nh using a ralink rt3070 chipset inside. I've tried to install my card using the included cd in windows 7 ultimate 32bits. I've also tried downloading drivers from alfa web page and ralink webpage for my usb card. Ll is installed but the card is disabled in windows "lan conections". When i click on enable it, it continues disabled. If i click on diagnose it sais that there's a problem with the driver that is incompatible.

I don't know what else to do because i've also change my usb cable but the problem continues. I installed in a windows vista ultimate 64 bits and the same problem with my card. There's a thing i consider: the blue light in the usb card is blinking or is active, i think that means that the card is working but i can't use it. Please help me to resolve this.

Cannot Update Usb Print Driver Without Error

I am trying to get an hp 4100 laserjet printer to work on my new windows 7 ultimate 64 bit laptop. When i plug in the printer through a usb adapter cable, windows 7 finds and loads a compatible driver hp4100 pcl6. The printer works most of the time, but i get errors when i try to print many images. According to the hp forums, the pcl6 driver has issues just like this, and they suggest using either a pcl5 or ps driver instead. I explored using add printer and found that there is a windows 7 64 compatible driver hp4100 ps available if i select to use windows update to find all the latest printer drivers.

Since i could not find any way to get windows 7 to let me select the driver (it always installs hp4100 pcl6 without asking or letting me intervene), i tried going to printer properties > advanced on the printer screen. I selected new driver, chose the hp4100 ps driver from the list, and it seemed to install it. However, as soon as i went back to printer properties, i got an error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed and asking if i want to install it.

When i look under print server properties, the hp4100 ps driver is listed. It also appears on the printer properties > advanced screen for the driver. However, every time i select printer properties i get the error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed. It seems to be a problem of the error message, not the driver.

The other strange thing is, if i select properties for the printer, and look at at hardware, it shows hp4100 pcl6 (the one i removed) along with usb printer services. What can i do to get windows to recognize this new driver? Or, alternately, if i delete the printer, what can i do to keep windows from reinstalling the default hp4100 pcl6 automatically when i next plug in the printer and let me select the driver i want. I could find no way to override the install.
