Windows 7: Leadtek Winfast PVR2000 rtm driver

25 Nov 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

It works for me on Windows 7 64bit. I had to change the driver names in the inf file and rename the vista drivers to get windows to accept it. There is always the risk that it will crash in the future (i.e. there must have been a reason why the drivers were blocked in the first place); but so far so good.

I've attached a rar file with my drivers and a quick readme file if you want to make your own (for slightly different circumstances). Use at your own risk (of course)

Sorry for the late reply, I am packing to move overseas. I will try to get online as much as I can to help you out.

I had a look at my system, my sound works. Check the three basic areas of failure (shown below).
I had to muck around a bit to select the correct devices to direct my sound both and and out of the PVR.


Right click on the volume icon in the Windows 7 taskbar
First lets check the playback device without PVR.
Open 'Playback Devices' right click on the 'default device' and click test, if it works go
to the next step, if not change your default device or speakers and troubleshoot until this works.

Click on the 'Recording' tab, if PVR is on, you should see movement in the default device sound-bar. If not change this until you see movement in the default device sound-bar.

Ensure that the same devices as selected in your Windows 7 sound settings are the devices in your PVR settings, or that sound is forwarded correctly through your system is alternate devices are selected.

Here's my configuration....
PLAYBACK = Speakers
RECORDING = Line In (High Def)

=MY Windows 7=
Playback = SPeakers
Recording = Line in (High Def)
* Make sure on the Recording tab that you tick the 'Listen to this device' check box otherwise you won't get any audible output.

Check Physical connections and hardware

- A fault here is unlikely given that it worked prior to installing Windows 7 but....Just to be safe, if you have spare hardware, replace each cable/device one at a time (an isolation test) to verify that there is no fault here.

Good Luck

Now everything works perfectly
Problem was with realtek sound driver - Previously I used default driver from Windows 7 install and after replacing for realtek driver I found devices

Hey Tim I've downloaded your modified drivers for my PVR2000. They are correctly installed and are working with WinFast PVR 2, but they don't work with MediaPortal or the Windows Media Center (there sometimes, but often got an error about low bitrate) Do you know a solution? I can't get multiple tuners (I have two of the pvr2000) working. I hope you have an idea Anyway, your drivers are great, thought I have to buy a new tv card.

Hi flashkidsf,

Can you please post a screen print of the error message? I want to see if it looks familiar. Cheers.

BTW - I have a step by step list that I wrote for personal use to set up the PVR2000. There may be a faster way, but you're welcome to try, this always gets it installed for me. Uninstall yours first and reboot.

1. Install old PVR (20319)with the Vista drivers
2. Reboot
3. Force install the new(-ish) drivers that I altered. Do this via device manager.
4. Install the latest PVR2 (20332)
5. Install the latest sound drivers for your sound card from the manufacturers website (not MSUPDATE).
6. Reboot.

Thanks for your fast reply
Here is the screenshot of Mediaportal:
and of Media Center It's German, I try to translate it: Low Bitrate The capture of data through the tuner was finished. Make sure, that the driver is installed correctly and that the software drivers are up to date. Should the problem persist, reboot your computer and repeat the event.

I can't use your step by step list, because I can't install any other drivers than your, because Leadtek doesn't provide a 64-bit driver for the PVR2000. How have you got it installed?

EDIT: Damn, I have no sound in WinFast PVR2 I have not recognized it yesterday, because I thought it would work properly

Hi flashkidsf,

Mine is definitely running on a 64 bit OS. However, I never experienced this error and I have reinstalled Windows 7 twice. Did you already have codecs installed on the machine? The bit rate problem may be caused by ffdshow or some other encoder, try uninstalling all codecs and then reinstalling PVR2. Try also running the PVR2 installation file in XP compatibility and as an administrator, then after installation make the same changes to the PVR2 exe (you can do this by right clicking on the exe or shortcut and altering the compatibility tab).
Once we get it working, we can reinstall the codecs. These are good drivers here.

About your sound, a common issue is the incorrect drivers. In this scenario the sound works for everything 'except' PVR2. Did you download your sound drivers from the manufacturers website? or just let windows update and install it automatically? As you didn't fill out your system specs I can't see what sound card you are using; but this issue often occurs with onboard realtek sound devices. Go to the manufacturers website and try the correct drivers.

Good Luck!
