Pinnacle PCTV HD mini Stick stoped working

I had been using this on my new HP laptop with no problems until the other day .When I powered up the computer it went to a blue screen and restarted in a safe/normal mode.After that it would not detect the stick.I reinstalled the software,still not working.I did notice that the stick when it was working ran hot,maybe that's normal?
The computer does detect when the stick is pluged in,but not as a tuner. Is it toast? Or can the stick be reprogramed?

    When I powered up the computer it went to a quick blue screen with some type of warning that I think said something to the effect it had to shut down, to protect itself. I then restarted and came up in the safe/normal mode.I clicked on normal it came up normal with everything working but the mini-stick.The first time I removed and plugged the stick back in the computer said it detected human something but not the tuner.I hope this helps.

    I'm sorry I don't have more info on the blue screen it happened so fast.

NEED TO OBTAIN INSTALL/DOWNLOAD DISC FOR PCTV HD ULTIMATE STICK


I would do a search for pinnacle website and then you can download the drivers and software. A recommendation in the future don't post your software serial number on a general public website.

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...

Pinnacle PCTV pro stick 801e


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.

Sound problem


If you can't see separate audio capture device in VLC and you aren't using separate cable from your device to your soundcard, then you can't get sound with VLC. If you use separate cable, make sure you have selected you soundcard as audio capture device.

Obviously all are forgetting about your product!!! It must be new or you would not put up with a remote problem for too long. call the pro stick people for support>
