Question about Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick USB 2.0 TV Tuner

Pinnacle PCTV pro stick 801e

I have Vista Home Premium 64bit and the pro stick i just bought is only capable with 32 bit media center. There is an updated driver on this site that i downloaded: http://cdn.pinnaclesys.com/SupportFiles/PCTV%20Drivers/ReadmePCTV.htm

It says to follow the instructions after you download it but I am still very unclear how to install it and get my media center working already.

Hi Adam,

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_5.4.0.3032.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.

Enjoy.

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wow, 16gigs of RAM... thats alot!
Well, for you to be able to get full use of your 16gigs ram. You need to be using a 64BIT OS. Windows Vista and Windows 7 has 64bit versions. The main problem that you will encounter with using 64bit OS is driver compatibility with your devices. Hopefully all your components have 64bit drivers. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Contact the Printers Manf. or go to its web site for drivers.
If that fails, you may want to daul boot with a 32bit system.
Also, you may want to Gogle the printer for a 64bit driver.

Take it back! Either the computer or the Pin. TV Had this system last year on the 32 bit computer and was not happy. There is so much to adapt that it is not worth it. The world is not ready for 64 bit! See if you can use Vista system under the control panel to get it too work. This is mainly for older programs not running on Vista like games, etc. but try it for 64 bit--not sure, but call Pinacle if all else fails. If they want to make sales they must have support!
