ADS Tech Instant TV+FM PCI (PTV-351) Not working on Vista
Hello, I need to get my tv tuner working on vista home premium. I have installed the drivers from the cd (didn't work) uninstalled, and then installed from ADS Tech website, didn't work either. Windows Vista Detects it as Conexant x88, but it wont work in Media Center. Bundled software says I need windows media player 9 or greater, and I have WMP 11.

Here is the link for tv center pro for your vista 64 bit download and install this to your computer. http://cdnexpress.pinnaclesys.com/akdlm/SupportFiles/TVCenter/TVC540/PinnacleTVCenterProSetup_126.96.36.19932.exe. I suggest also to connect your tuner device at any usb port.
By the way you need the serial number for the new tv center pro.
Remove the TV Tuner from the USB Port and see if it will start now. Install the tuner once Vista has restarted.
Some computers will attempt to boot to a USB device such as a hard drive or mp3 player.
If that doesn't work do you know how to get your computer into safe mode?
