The hardware is probably too old to be recognized if you are trying to install it in a newer version of Windows, such as XP or Vista. You would probably save yourself a lot of wasted time and energy if you simply buy a newer inexpensive TV tuner card for your version of Windows. A good place to start searching would be http://www.pricegrabber.com

Can't get wireless card to install


This is strange, and it sounds like you've done everything right, but.....have you tried a reverse install?

Remove the card, un-install all the drivers and remove the device from the device manager if the uninstall doesn't do it.

Shut the machine down (turn it off)

Install the Linksys card in your available PCI slot.

Start the machine back up. When the Found New Hardware message pops up, follow the prompts from there instead. Your PC may be able to load drivers it already has. If not and if it asks for a disk, then use the CD you got with the card.

All of this assumes the card is ok to use with XP

First you need to find out exact model of your TV Tuner. If it is installed it should be in
Start\Control Panel\System\Device Manager\Sound, video and game controllers.
To check installation you can double click it and in tab "General" you will see "This device is working properly" or not.

Knowing the board part number you can check out Sabrent web site for drivers: http://www.sabrent.com/#itemName=&itemID=0&section=Drivers and see if they have a newer one - if yes, then give it a try.

PCI slot / TV tuner error


i am not an expert, but have lots of experience with my own media center. by moving the tuner card you changed the address of it which if the os does not recognize new hardware, it will not install the drivers for it. i believe you will have to use the device manager to reinstall the drivers for the tuner card. also will have to redo the setup for the tuner in media center. another problem with the softare change is you have to update the security components to be able to view certain channels.

you can find the best information for all these subjects at your computer manufacturers support website and of course microsoft for the security components. good luck, it should not be too difficult to solve your delemna with a little research and searching there.

I bought apci tv capture card and the manual version says 2.0 and the driver and software disc says v5.3 and whe i try to open the enltv says that the set up is incorrect


A lesson


You mean you purchased a PCI TV Capture card , not "apci" tv capture card.

Good for you ! , Television Sets are a thing of the past and it's time we moved on.

and your manual says your PCI TV capture card is version 2.0
and that your Installation CD states that it's version 5.0



1. the driver CD version of the drivers on it can be 5.0 this has nothing to do with your PCI TV capture card being 2.0 , they are totaly sepreate things.


2. when you attempt to launch the enltv program you receive the error message

"set up is incorrect"

Your PCI TV Tuner Capture Card is made by Encore.

Well your in luck !


There is excellent support for it here.

http://www.encore-usa.com/product_item.php?region=us&bid=2&pgid=17&pid=46

But I see a weakness , and a delema

The weakness is that the site may not provide you with what you really need.

and the delema is to decide what you want to do about that !

If you already have a driver loaded , and you can see that everything is ok in the device manager
meaning no yellow exclamation marks on your PCI TV Tuner device then please proceed with these steps


Since Most PCI tuner cards have less than sufficent support and may not work in all circumstance
due to OS incompatabilites. we sometimes have to take matters into our own hands.


1. Install the PCI TV Tuner into the second PCI slot and try to assign it IRQ 9
2. Load the driver if you have no IRQ conflict
3. Load a program called "MediaPortal" a third party freeware open source program designed to give you back the ability to watch your PCI tuner capture card in the event that it's Television software has failed.

Do not load media portal unless you are confident that your PCI TV Tuner Card DRIVER Installed correctly.

Do no load MediaPortal unless you have no other choice.

4. If at this point you have decided to give MediaPortal a try then download it and install it.

DO NOT install MediaPortal at this stage unless you have downloaded ALL the microsoft critical updates and service packs.



Please understand that your computer may be horribly outdated and needs all it's critical updates and service packs , and maybe even updated directx before MediaPortal can run properly


The default password for SA
is "MediaPortal" and that IS case sensitive


Thank you for using FixYa!

Vaio pc problems


Hi, There is a problem with the tv tuner card in the Computer. Go to Control Panel, double click on System, (if you don't see system, in the top left pane of that window, click switch to classic view). In the dialog box that appears, click on the hardware tab, then click on device manager. In this window, see if there is any yellow question mark icon beside the tv tuner device. If there is, then you will need to reinstall the software driver that came with it or you can download it from the internet. If there is no yellow question mark, then just double-click on the device and check the device status to make sure it says "this device is working properly". If it doesn't say this, then there is a problem with the device. You can try to reinstall the driver but there is a big possibility that the tv tuner card might need replace. Please let me know what happens. Regards, Lolita
