When I try to run the software to view the tv, it will ask to connect the hardware device. My computer can see the hardware and I can even use other video software to access the hardware device, ie. msn messenger or Skype video. I installed it on another computer and it seem to work fine. I am running it on usb 2.0. I have reinstalled both the drivers and the software to no avial.
Please follow the below steps and this should provide a resolution.
1. Unplug the USB2TVTUNER from the PC 2. Uninstall the following from Add/Remove Programs a) USB Video/Audio Device Driver b) Windows Media Tools 4.0 c) XTV2.0 Extract the file downloaded to your Desktop, make sure you remove any cds from your drive. 3. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged) 4. Install USB2TVTUNER\Windows.32bit\AP Software\setup.exe from the folder you downloaded. This will install three separate programs, please install all of them. 5. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged) 6. Install USB2TVTUNER\Windows.32bit\Driver\Setup.exe from the folder you downloaded. 7. Restart the computer (leave the USB2TVTUNER unplugged) 8. After the computer is 100% loaded into Windows, plug the USB2TVTUNER in. It should self install itself.

You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.
Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.
So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.
When this happens, click Start and Control Panel. If you are in Category View, click Performance And Maintenance and then System. If you are using Classical View, double-click the System icon.
In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab and the Device Manager button. Next, look through the list of devices until you see Universal Serial Bus Controllers and click the plus (+) sign next to it. Double-click one of the USB Root Hub lines and click the Power Management tab in the USB Root Hub Properties dialog box. Click the Allow The Computer To Turn Off This Device To Save Power checkbox so it is unchecked. Click OK and restart your computer.
While installing the printer just switch off the printer and try to install the printer driver completely, When the software will ask you to connect the printer then only switch on the printer. If this way still you are getting the same problem then connect the printer in other usb port or use different USB cable
The Fuzeplayer must NOT be connected to the computer before you install the software. If this has happpened, you will need to remove the Fuse driver in Device Manager. (Inst for XP) Go to My Computer->Right click and select Properties. In properties, select hardware and Device Manager. With Device Manager open, plug in the Sansa Fuse player. Find the new driver that popped in. (You can do and undo this several times until you are certain you have the right one.) Right click the fuze driver and select 'Remove'. Close all windows you opened. Unplug the fuze player and do not connect it until the driver is reinstalled with the driver disk. When the software asks, plug it back in. That should solve it. Unsure? ask a knowledgable friend to help.
The thing is printer is automatically detected by the system and there was no proper driver was installed and it is in device manger installed as other device with yellow mark. Just uninstall it. And click on scan for hardware changes. To go to device manager right click on my computer and go to properties then hardware in that click on device manger and check there is any other device is listed if it is there just remove it and click for scan for hardware changes when he prompt for driver reinstall the driver cd.
Don’t connect the printer usb cable first 1st you install the driver disc which is come along with the printer and when the software prompt you to connect the cable then plug the usb cable and follow the instruction.

Look at the FAQ in www.encore-usa.com:
"When you see "Failed to Initialize Hardware" message, please be sure Video Card driver and Sound Card driver are properly installed by checking Device Manager under Computer Management. If the above conditions are met and you are still experiencing problem, it is necessary to perform a hardware reset procedure on the card. Here's how: power down the computer, unplug the TV Tuner Card from the motherboard, remove the jumper on the card (pin 2 and 3) and then put it back. Power back up the computer and then try to run the software again."
It seems that the card have some kind of issue that "hangs" its hardware, you should try also another TV Program like K-TV.
Mine did exactly that "Failed to initalize Hardware" but the free K-TV program worked! :)
