Laptop doesn't recognize tv tuner anymore

Is there a way to check and see if the tv tuner is still functional? i quit using it for a month or two then when i tried to use it again just now the computer won't recognize the tv tuner. i used to go into quickplay, click the second option (camera, reel, musical note) then click the fifth option (composite i think, which is no longer there) since the option is no longer there it makes me wonder if it's just broken and its not getting recognized because of it. i would try to reinstall with the cd but im in iraq and i didn't bring it with me. so if theres a way to tell if its broken or if theres some other way to access it or just something im overlooking please reply, thank you.

Hi!

You may check Device Manager first to check if your TV tuner is still properly installed or still detected by your computer. For Windows XP - Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and check if the TV tuner is still there.

If you cannot see the TV tuner under Device Manager , unplug then replug your tuner and see if something will pop up under "Other Devices" (still under Device Manager). If it does, then you need to right click it and reinstall the driver. You can just download the driver/software over the net.

Now, if your computer does not detect it at all try another PC to test if the problem is with your PC or just the tuner.

Good luck and have a nice day!

I need installation cd for philips saa7130 tv tuner. where do i go get one?


This particular device is tricky as Philips does not have drivers on their website, however there is a way to get this up and running.
First thing you are going to do is download two zipped folders, each containing the software that you will need. The first driver package is located here (unzip but do not install).
Second you will download the software package, located here (but do not unzip or install yet install).

Third, uninstall the TV tuner card if is showing up in Device Manager. You can get to Device manager by right clicking on My Computer and selecting Manage. In the left side click Device Manager. When all the devices are shown, right-click on the TV tuner card and click uninstall. Also, because the TV tuner card may be hooked up and no drivers are installed, you may see an "unknown device". Uninstall the "unknown device". Now run the installation/setup program from the first download and follow the step by step instructions.
After setup has finished installing the drivers, go ahead and restart your computer. After you have logged back into your computer, your operating system will recognize the TV tuner and may prompt you for the driver files via the Found New Hardware wizard. When prompted for a driver, browse to the first folder that you downloaded and select the driver file. Now that your computer has recognized and successfully installed the hardware, you will unzip and run the setup file from the second folder you downloaded. This is the software application that will use to interact with your new tuner card.

I just purchased a laptop and I can't watch TV on it


Yes, you cannot watch TV without one! They are easy to set up and produce both digital and analog. some of the more expensive ones even allow HDMI. cost anywhere from $50-$300

The cheap ones work quite well.

Play & Record VHS through TV Tuner Card


You need to connect the ariel to the vcr, then the vcr to the card, using a male/female fly lead. Then I suggest putting an origional film tape into the vcr, press play on the vcr and then scan in the channels on the card. It should pick up the vcr's output of the film that is playing.
