Question about Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick USB 2.0 TV Tuner

Tv tuner problems only with Vista Media Center

I have a Pinnacle PCTV HD Stick and it works great through the Pinnacle programs, but when I try to watch live tv through Vista Media Center the stream is terrible and both audio and video playback is horrible. Before I try to invest in adding more RAM, I wanted to see if there ia another inexpensive solution. I currently have A Compaq SR5350F / Intel Dual Core, with 2 megs of RAM. Help...
Thanks ~ Bryan

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

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:...


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!

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.

I can't start my vista computer after i installed pinnacle pctvhd ultimate stick


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?
