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.

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?

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).

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.

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.

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.

No Device Drivers Found

I'm trying to install windows 7, and have wasted multiple discs in the process, trying different speeds, different softwares, even different types of discs. My problem is i'm getting stuck with the "no device drivers found. " I've seen a few threads but i cannot find an answer that will work.

The last thing i thought i would mention is that i'm currently on windows xp x32 and i'm wanting to go to windows 7 x64. Can this be done? Do i need to fully uninstall windows xp with the windows xp disc before even using the windows 7 disc?

Outlook.ost Cannot Be Found

I have a new windows 7 install that keeps having user rights issues. The user is a domain user with administrative rights and has a roaming profile set up from a previous xp system.

We have enabled the hidden admin and given full permission to the folders to the domain login, given specifically administrative rights to the login from the user accounts screen, moved uac all the way down to never notify, but still have the same issue. Can someone help us out, because this is driving me up the wall!

Operating System Not Found

We were running window server 2008, yesterday when we shut down the server everything was working find, the shut down was normal and nothing unusual happened. This morning when we start the server, the screen was black and only "operating system not found" appeared on the screen. When we reboot, entered bios setup, the disk at sata 0 was reset to "none", we tried to select "auto" and the system not able to read the disk info. We tried using system repair (setup disk) to recover but unsuccessful.

There was no way we can access to the system disk? What is happening to the disk? We did not perform anything on the disk and it was working properly yesterday. We have important data inside, hope anybody can help let us know how to resolve the operating system problem or at least recover the data from the disk. We are worried that the hard disk was permanently damaged.

Error - Item Not Found

Item not found, could not find this item. This is no longer located in c:users. Desktop. Verify the item's location and try again. The file is called "visual " - no extension, and a space at the end of the word. The only thing i can think of is that windows is trying to locate an item called "visual" when the real file name is "visual ".could the space be causing the item not found error, when i try to delete or rename the file? If so, how can i fix this?

Operating System Can Not Be Found

I have a sony vaio laptop (less than 2 years old) with a windows vista operating system. Every night i put it in sleep mode and leave it for the night. So, i did so last night, and this afternoon, after getting out of school, i pressed the space bar to bring it out of sleep mode. The back-light came on, but the screen stayed dark, and it started making a tapping-like sound for about 10 seconds.

After that, it went into dos mode with the message, "operating system can not be found". So i held down the power button to completely shut it off, left it off for 10 seconds or so then turned it back on. It did the same "tapping thing" then the same message appeared.

I then assumed it had crashed and i'd have to get a new operating system or something equally expensive. But about 20 minutes later, just to see, i turned it off one more time and turned it back on, and incredibly, it gave me the system recovery screen or whatever, with the different options to start it up again, then started up as usual. I have no idea what would cause it to do this and definitely don't want it to happen again. Is there anything i can/should do to prevent this?

No Device Drivers Found Issue

I downloaded the student edition of windows 7 home premium, i am currently running vista ultimate so cannot do an update and have to do a custom install. I downloaded it fine, ran it, it opens up fine with the blue windows 7 opening screen, i select install, then select custom install. In the next window i have an empty white box which i presume is supposed to list my hd's allowing me to select where i want to install windows 7. None of my hd's are showing up, i'm given the option to browse or scan, when i select this it gives me the message.

No device were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok. Any suggestions?
