Failure To Initialize Hardware

Whenever I try to launch my ENLTV utility, (the included program on the CD) it gives me a "Failed To Initialize Hardware" error message. I have installed and reinstalled the software several times, and it still refueses to work. I have reseated the card as well inside my computer, and it continues to give me a problem. The card I have is a "ENLTV-FM Tuner" I bought it from Newegg some time ago, and the card has worked in the past, but it refuses to work now. I need help trying to get this thing to work! Please Help!

Re: Failure To Initialize Hardware

OK I think your problem may be that you need to install/reinstall the drivers.
Does it show up in Device Manager? If so, Uninstall it, reboot and then reinstall the drivers when, if? XP detects it and asks for drivers.
Hopefully this will sort it. If not, then maybe ya card is faulty.

''failed to initialized hardware!''

I had the same problem.... (the "failed to initialize hardware!") I found a solution posted somewhere... it's not my discovery, but I've checked it and it works. First of all, you need to uninstall the drivers for the Enutv. You can do that from Control Panel> System> Hardware> Administrator of Devices (I'm not sure about this last label, as my XP is in Spanish, but it's the first button in the folder). The hardware should be listed under the label sound, video and games devices. Once you uninstall the driver, you unplug the hardware and reset the computer if necessary. Now turn over to the installation cd. Inside the drivers folder, there is an XP folder and a Vista folder (choose the one you need), copy the 32bit folder to your computer, and plug in the device. When the Asistant runs, instead of looking for the drivers automatically, make the search yourself. And when it asks you for the file, select it yourself (it is the one in the folder you copied from the cd - note: if you don't have the cd you can download it from the Encore website). Once you finish with that, you can install the enutv software and enjoy it. I've read somewhere that you should re install the OS, but that is not necessary...
Hope it help!

ENLTV- Failed to initialize Hardware. followed steps. STILL PROBLEM!!!!!

Your hardware technically hasn't gone anywhere, it is still inside your computer. However, the drives for said hardware may have dissapeard. Try installing the drivers from the CD, and see if Windows recognizes the hardware then. If it does, follow the steps in the previous solution to reinstall generic drivers. ***DO NOT REMOVE OLD DRIVERS FIRST*** Just select "update drivers" instead. See if that helps. In the meantime, I am going to see if I can replicate your problem, or see if someone else can help.

ENLTV- Failed to initialize Hardware. followed steps. STILL PROBLEM!!!!!

Look at the FAQ in "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! :)
