It seems to me that it might be a hardware issue. When did you send the ticket to GB?

Hello...

I hope I can help you...

You can try a few things to make your card work... video & sound together !

First, I think you have picture, indeed, but it is totally dark (black).
If you click on video tab in settings options in Presto PVR utility, you'll see that all options are "greyed"... non-adjustable. Try to find somewhere little prog named "Enable Button 1.1" and try to unlock this options and now... try to raise brightness, contrast to see picture as it should be.

If first "trick" doesn't work for you... try to uninstall Presto PVR... and before you install again (but make sure you have latest driver installed and latest PVR version ready for install), right click on setup.exe of PVR and tick "RUN AS ADMINISTATOR" in compatibility tab.

I hope it will help....

I'm waiting for your reply.

Good luck.

Very good... it's all right now, at last...

So, picture on most TV tuners is worse than picture on most TVs, unfortunately.

There is many reasons for that... it's a long story.

Bratski pozdrav, brate Srbine.
