Question about Encore ENLTV-FM-HA (CTETVC)
Whenever I try to launch my ENLTV utility, (the included program on the CD) it gives me a "Failed To Initialize Hardware" error message. I have installed and reinstalled the software several times, and it still refueses to work. I have reseated the card as well inside my computer, and it continues to give me a problem. The card I have is a "ENLTV-FM Tuner" I bought it from Newegg some time ago, and the card has worked in the past, but it refuses to work now. I need help trying to get this thing to work! Please Help!

For Windows XP Professional:
First go here: http://www.encore-usa.com/product_item.php?region=us&bid=2&pgid=17&pid=46
Download the file labeled "Utility ENLTV Driver/Utility for Win2K/XP/Windows Vista™ V3.0 to 5.2" and UnRAR it. You will only need the 32bit Drv folder in Drivers. There are two .INF files, you'll be needing those.
Now go to your device manager and uninstall any references to your Encore TV Tuner PCI card. Afterwards, hit F5 or just go to the menu and refresh. You'll be prompted to install newly found hardware.
Do not do an Automatic search/install. Do the one below that option (let me specify).
Choose the "No, Let me decide what driver to use" (or close to that wording) option and click next.
You should see a list of compatible hardware come up, choose have disk.
Point to the CAP7134.INF file in the 32bit Drv folder and click OK. Click Continue Anyways when prompted.
After hardware finishes installing, you'll be prompted for drivers for an "Unknown" device. Do not worry.
Simply get back to the "No, let me choose what driver to install" option. Then, when a listing of possible device types comes up, just click OK (by default, "All Devices" should be highlighted).
Windows XP may take a minute to load up the entire driver list. When it does come up, click Have Disk and then point to the PhTV7134.inf file in the 32bit Drv folder. Click Next/Ok and click Continue Anyways when prompted.
This *should* solve the problem. If you have any further problems, simply turn off your computer, carefully remove the PCI TV Tuner card and look for a jumper that will be on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper and then reinstall the card into your computer. This should fix any problems you may have with this card in Windows XP Professional.
If you get a list of types of devices, you'll see "All Devices"

**I am a noob, excuse me. I didn't see the "Post new Solution" Option. Double Posting glory!** I have found a solution to the problem, as far as the ENLTV-tuner goes on a windows XP Pro. Uninstall all drives for the device, using the device manager. Right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager. The device should be listed as "Multimedia controller" or similar. Right click and uninstall the drives, and restart computer if neccessary. Now, scan computer for hardware changes. Windows should detect a new Multimedia controller. DO NOT use the included CD drives. Instead, use the "generic" windows drivers by saying 'automatically search for drives on this computer.' Be sure to remove the CD from your CD Tray. Windows should find the required drivers, and install them, You can now install the ENLTV utility (basically, the TV program). This should work. I have twice now had the "Failed to initilize hardware" problem after reinstalling windows on my computer. This solution worked both times.

SOURCE: Failure To Initialize Hardware
OK I think your problem may be that you need to install/reinstall the drivers.
Does it show up in Device Manager? If so, Uninstall it, reboot and then reinstall the drivers when, if? XP detects it and asks for drivers.
Hopefully this will sort it. If not, then maybe ya card is faulty.
