Question about Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick USB 2.0 TV Tuner

2 Answers

I have Vista Home Premium 64bit and the Pinnacle PCTV HD 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.

I have not been successful in this process myself because I performed this update on a system that was not functioning for another reason, but I do know how to update the driver. Here's how to do it.
I am assuming that you have downloaded the 64 bit drivers into a folder, and you remember the name of that folder. Note that of this writing, the 64 bit drivers are still in beta.
At this point, you follow the instructions here http://pinnacle.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/pinnacle.cfg/php/enduser/popup_adp.php?p_faqid=15866
Did you already know about the second link? (Hopefully that second link is news and will help)

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!

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.

This page contains drivers for all of the Pinnacle TV products, scroll down to 801e (if that is indeed your model) and select the appropriate OS download. The instructions should be in the zip file...

Tv tuner problems only with Vista Media Center


THE LANGUAGE OR PROGRAM IS ADVANCE LANGUAGE WRITEN IN A DIFFERENT CODE, WINDOWS XP CODE IS DIFFERENT CODE THAN VISTA 32 - 64 BIT SYSTEM, THE 32BIT IS NOT TOTALLY COMPATABLE THERE IS SOME ITEMS THAT MITE WORK BUT YOU ARE DEFEETING THE PURPOSE WHY YOU WENT TO VISTA, OPEN LOTS OF WINDOWS APPLICATION AND RUN THEM ALL AT THE SAME TIME WITHOUT WAITING ONE PROGRAM TO FINISH BEFORE YOU CAN START ANOTHER ONE, MULTIPLEXING. I HOPE THAT HELPED YOU, NOW WE HAVE WINDOWS7 OUT BETTER THAN VISTA
