Wintv stuttering when watch channel, but is fine when record it

Just installed a WinTV-HVR 1600 on a Dell 5150 with an EVGA GeForce 8500 video card. Scans and finds channels (Time Warner cable, analog) just fine. When play a tv channel, it is as if it is getting two signals, one delayed about 1.5 seconds from the other. When I hit the Record button, the problem disappears, and the recorded version is fine also. I have tried every option using the Power.exe, have modified bios settings, all seemingly with no change or effect.

Re: Wintv stuttering when watch channel, but is fine when...

Further update: Have downloaded SageTV, and it works fine with the Hauppage card. Is definitely a software problem. Have also tried total uninstall, reinstall, with same results. Also downloaded GBPVR, and it also worked with the card.

Dell? Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 TV Tuner "IR Hardware not detected" message during setup

Make sure you have the remote sensor plugged all the way into the connector on the card. Also check your taskbar for the "remote" icon which confirms you have "irblaster32.exe" installed.

I have a HP Media Center PC 470n. Is there another card just for that PC. I have the wintv- hvr 1600,not as happy as I thought I would be.

You can use any capture card you want as long as you have a slot on the mother board. Media Center works with almost every capture card.
Having said that, i found hauppauge a great capture device what was it you didnt like?

Xp media center says no ntsc tuner installed

Okay, Media center does not work with some Wintv HVR's yet it will work with the software it came with and sometimes media center will use the wintv software to make it work but its sketchy. If you want a more media center compatiable card look at website they have a list of media center compatable Tv tuner cards, Trust me I am having the same problem with my tuner card now and its not wintv its a RCA and its under windows 7 this is just the thing here not all card work with media center.

Thanks for using please do click the accept button.

Windows media center can not find ir receiver

be sure you have installed the driver. If you are using windows 7 you still need to install the winTV driver. I know this because I had the same problem. It should work then. Just go to TV setting in the media center setup and it should scan for channels.

WinTV-HVR-1600 Tuner card to DishNetwork receiver

Yes, but what it can connect to depends on what Dish DVR you have. The newer, HD ones only have HDMI, S-Video, and that 5-split coax as outputs for the main TV since you only get these box's if you have and HDTV.

This is because regular old coaxial is no longer good enough for them. This means you must connect the newer DVR's to the S-Video input on the Hauppauge1600 since it is the only input to the card the Dish DVR supports.

If your DVR is older and has the coax out, you can use that and connect it to the Hauppauge analog input.

Tuning to pick up sky feed

Sounds like from discription the sky feed is set up for analog channel 6. With my TV-HVR-1600 card, there is an option in the wintv application when you click the menu button in the application that says channel suite. If you select this option, you should find and option for analog source. Select analog source in this screen and you should be able to manually add channel 6 in the box at the top of the analog souce screen. Also if you have the sky feed connected and you you click the scan button on this screen, it should detect automatically is the sky feed is on.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player

There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.
