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. Kworld-global.com/main/support_down.aspx?Mnuid=1338&modid=22, 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.

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.

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.

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.

How To Determine Dpi Of Png Image In Explorer?

In windows xp and vista, to determine the dpi of a png image, i could right-click, go to properties, then the summary tab, and there were entries for horizontal resolution and vertical resolution of the png along with the width, height, and bit depth.

However, in windows 7, when i go to the properties, i only see width, height, and bit depth. For jpg's i also see the dpi, but not for png's.

Is there an additional setting i need to turn on? Is there somewhere else i should be looking to find the dpi information?

Would a file delete be in order?

Monitor Loses Signal In Media Center

Running windows 7 rc on a dell dimension e521. Runs great, except for the odd thing that has been happening lately. Randomly, while watching tv through windows media center, i'll hear the sound that usually plays when a usb cable is unplugged, and then my monitor will lose its signal. There is no way to get the signal back, as i've tried unplugging and replugging the monitor in, both power and dvi. Ive tried ctrl+alt+del. I usually have to hard restart, and then my monitor comes back on when the bios screen comes on. I want to say its a driver issue, but it happens so randomly, i just cant tell what it is. Any guesses?

I have an intel desktop board g33fb that supports :

Four 240-pin ddr2 sdram dual inline memory module (dimm) sockets
Channel a slot 0 and slot 1
Channel b slot 0 and slot 1
Support for ddr2 800 mhz, or ddr2 667 mhz dimms

I have two 2 gb ram sticks
Transcend 2 gb ddr2 667 mhz
Kingston 2 gb ddr2 800 mhz

I have plugged the 667mhz ram stick on channel a slot 0 and 800mhz ram stick on channel b slot 1. Would it make a difference in the performance of the computer if i use 2 ram sticks on different channels or shall i get ram sticks with similar speed.

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?

Configuration Parser Error

I have an error that wont allow a new game to open. The error states: error parsing c:windowsmicrosoft.netframeworkv2. 0. 50727config. Machine.config parser returned error 0xc00ce556.

The only option is to select ok and another window pops up and displays: launcher has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. I have a hp dv7-1245dx on vista. I contacted hp and there only suggestion was to perform a system restore which i did but the problem still continues. Any suggestions to correct this error is greatly appreciated.

Raid Configuration Failed

Raid configuration (which is something that is recommended by microsoft) failed>>>> be carefeul - they hung up the phone on him b/c it was after business hours.

We had a redundant hard drive on my husbands computer so we could make sure we didn't loose any files on our computers. Well, within our home network we could not see each others computers which happened just recently and so we decided to do a system restore. My computer has windows 7 and my husbands does too. My system restore performed flawlessly . My husbands. Not so much - he cant even boot his computer let alone get to safe mode. We had been on the phone with microsoft for 3 hours, and i guess they wanted to send us to a different department - well they hung up on him and closed! I personally work for a customer service department and we try our hardest to get things done for our customers.

If there is a problem where we know we cannot fix before our "shift" is over, we make sure we transfer the situation to someone like a manager/expert to make sure the customer gets taken care of. Thats what customer service is all about. I am severely disappointed. By the way, the system restore erased both hard drives in the computer and now we have none of our files or programs.

No System Protection Configuration

My computer (only a few months old) has been acting kind of glitchy, and i wanted to perform a system restore to try and solve the problem. When i got to my sytem properties, and click the system protection tab, it tells me that system restore has been disabled by my system administrator. Problem is, i am my system administrator. My user accounts tells me so. To boot, i created another user account with administrator privileges, yet still cannot configure my system protection, and therefore can't perform a system restore.

I am at a loss. Nd just btw, in case someone can help me out with this without system restore (though i still want that situation remedied), some of the issues i have been having are: normal run-of-the-mill programs (ie, solitaire) not opening, despite my system resources being otherwise unoccupied; weird restarts where i'll manually restart, it crashes in the process, and then re-restarts and everything seems dandy; regular browsing links causing unwanted windows to open, but only to google analytics something or other, and then redirecting to yahoo, as well as certain websites lagging unendingly (in mozilla firefox only) due again to some sort of conflict with google analytics.

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.

Halo 2 Pc Keyboard Configuration Problem

I just purchased halo 2 for the pc and the game refuses to allow me to re-assign my keys. For example, if i try to re-assign forward to e, the game tells me: "that key has already been assigned to another action. Please clear that action and try again. " However, i cannot clear the action. The only actions i can clear are the secondary actions in the right-most column (by pressing delete when the action is selected, or x on my controller).

Also, entering the product key that came with my halo 2 pc in the ms support site doesn't work - it only tells me that there is a problem with the key, which i have confirmed and had another set of eyes confirm, is the correct key. The key worked when i installed and activated halo 2 pc, it just doesn't work at the support site i reached via the links in the halo 2 readme file.

If there's no fix for the keyboard configuration, i want a refund. Maybe i'm doing something wrong, but i've tried everything i can think of to clear the default keys without success and via google i've found others reporting the same problem. There's simply no excuse to release a pc fps with a broken keyboard configuration.

Update: i managed to re-assign almost all of the keys by simply re-assigning them to other keys first instead of trying to delete them first. However, i cannot re-assign forward to e. Attempting to assign any key to e always results in the same message about it already being assigned, even though e shows up nowhere in the list of key assignments. Kinda makes the whole thing pointless.

Configuration Issue With Family Safety

I have recently installed a mail server and created new email addresses and new live id's for my family. I went to family safety (running on windows 7 ultimate - 64 bit)and linked my new live id as a parent and deleted the original id. Now whenever family safety is invoked it requests the old original parent id to logon. Of course logging on with that id fails. What can i do to repair this situation? During my desperate attempts to find a solution to this problem i have come across the warnings not to do what i have done - but of course it's too late now.

Problem Installing Win 7 With Raid Configuration

I'm trying to dual boot windows 7 and windows xp on a system using raid. I have the windows 7 dvd and a cd with the raid drivers for my motherboard for w7 (i got the drivers from here:http://www.Gigabyte. Us/support/motherboard/driver_model.aspx?Productid=2424&ost=windows+7+32bit#anchor_os).

When i start up the windows 7 installation dvd, i make it to the screen where i choose a location to install w7. My hard drive does not show up, so i click the button that says something to the effect of "install drivers", and insert the cd with raid drivers for windows 7.

I then browse to the location where my drivers should be, and i get an error message telling me that no signed drivers can be found. I got the drivers from the official motherboard website, so i assume they're the right ones, but w7 doesn't seem to like them. Can anyone tell me what might be going wrong?

Ie8 Browser Configuration Error 102

Just upgraded to ie-8 on 3/19. One banking site could no longer log-in. I tried everything within the tools, internet options under security and privacy settings to get cookies enabled. It showed cookies to be enabled?  Ie-7 was not causing this problem and this is only on one site. I even tried deleting the temporary internet files that had built up but did not help. I even listed the web site under trusted sites to allow all cookies but also did not word. The following is the error message: browser configuration error  #102

The browser that you are using is not properly configured for using this site your browser is not accepting cookies. Please first enable cookies in your browser settings and then try logging in again. If the problem persists, please contact your financial institution's customer service for assistance with browser configuration.

I've never seen this type of error code. I downloaded the mozilla firefox browser and had no problem logging into banking site. Other than this one problem with ie-8 so far it appears to run faster than the ie-7. From what i can see, browser cookies are working ok on the other web sites. This is my first attempt at contacting someone, anyone that may have an answer or point me in the right direction. Additional details can be given.

Bios Boot Configuration Changes After Installing Win 7

I installed windows 7 ultimate 64-bit and every since then. My bios boot configuration changes. I have a1tb hd and an external western digital book. The change will often change swap the wd book to the 1st configuration. This does not work because it does not have the operating system on it. Once it changed the 1st boot to be the cd-rom drive.

The first time, i called dell and they told me that windows 7 changes it and to press the f2-setup key and go into the bios and there is a f9 key to restore to defaults. I did that and f10 to save it. It worked great for a couple of days and then something changes it back after the computer is shut off overnight and i reboot the next day.

One thing i did notice is that when i go into the system configuration under tools in windows 7 . Under the "general" tab. The use "original boot configuration is checked. I don't know how that got checked off but it will not let me uncheck it. The other setting under this tab are "load selected items" and load system services. Those are checked. The load startup items shows blue but not checked. I don't know what that means.

I am trying to figure this out. All the post tests on the system pass. And it is a new system (less than 1 year old). It is a dell xps 435t. Dell did recommend that i update the bios with their file. And actually did that before upgrading to windows 7. I have the newest updates on the system in total.

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.
