"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)"
I installed my HVR 1600 in my machine tonight and after powering it back up was reduced to 4bit color and 800x600 resolution.
I checked my device manager and my video card (nvidia 6600gt) had an error stating: hvr 1600 "This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)" I thought it might be a compatibility issue with the drivers for my nvidia 6600gt, but after installing several different newer drivers, nothing worked. After that I tried powering my machine down and booting up with the HVR1600 in different PCI slots each time. That didn't work either.
I am at my wits end and have been working at this for the last couple hours. I am not computer illiterate, but I am also not a computer genius by any means. That being said, if you have any helpful ideas or solutions, please spell them out a little to save yourself the time of clarifying later if I do not understand.
Ic smoke is right,
I had followed all other ideas, none worked,
I have windows xp, and was changing my old AGP video card (256mb nvidiaGeforce 6200 to an AGPnvidiaGeforce 6200 512mb)
for details on changing aperture do this:
-Go to BIOS (press Delete key during startup)
-find Aperture settings (for mine I went to Advanced Chipset)
-Adjust Aperture setting from 128 to 256
-Save and Exit (usually F10)
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You may not have enough computer power to run it. Try shutting down some running programs to see if that helps, if that doesn't do it you don't have enough computer power. Those takes a lot memory to run.
Error code 12 is one of those errors I hope you won't
ever receive, because fixing the problem can be rather difficult. There
are two different things that can trigger this error. The most common
problem is a resource conflict. Essentially, this means that two
hardware devices have been assigned overlapping resources.
A corrupt Multiprocessor System (MPS) table can also
cause error code 12. If the MPS table is corrupt, it can cause the BIOS
to allocate insufficient resources to hardware devices. I have had a
really tough time locating information regarding a solution to this
problem. From what I have been able to tell, though, it appears that an
MPS table can become corrupt as a result of a damaged hardware
abstraction layer (HAL). If that is the case, then reinstalling Windows
may fix the problem.
In plain English :D either you have 2 pieces of hardware trying to use the same resources (unlikely), or you have software that is trying to run the same driver twice. I believe that about the only way you are going to get rid of that message is with a clean install. Even then I wouldn't guarantee it.
Hi there. Code 12
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. If you
want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other
devices on this system. (Code 12)Cause
error can occur if two devices that are installed on your computer have
been assigned the same I/O ports, the same interrupt, or the same
Direct Memory Access channel (either by the BIOS, the operating system,
or both). This error message can also appear if the BIOS did not
allocate enough resources to the device.
You can use the
Troubleshooting Wizard in Device Manager to determine where the
conflict is, and then disable the conflicting device.
Disable the conflicting device
On the device Properties dialog box, click the General tab.
Click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. The wizard asks you some simple questions and provides a solution to your problem based on the answers that you provide.
Follow the resolution steps provided by the wizard to resolve the problem.
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.
I have a Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600. I have a comcast digital box hooked up to my PC. Signal is bad and black and white media. I installed the "current" driver two weeks ago (mid October) Work great! We had to perform a PC recovery. I downloaded the "current" driver. Got weak signal and black and white only.
go to control panel>> system>>hardware>> device manager.
double click on the netgear, go to resources tab, if there is conflict (it should). click on "change setting" select the memory range and the IRQ untill you see "no Conflicts" in the lower box.
close and exit. restart the machine.
