Windows 7: Leadtek Winfast PVR2000 rtm driver

Leadtek Winfast PVR2000 rtm driver

Hi all

I have the Leadtek winfast pvr2000 tv card and it works under vista 32b without problems.
I installed the seven rtm 32b and I met problems with this card.

Windows 7 freezes with a black screen during channel scan. All is locked, no mouse, and keyboard led doesn't work respond (capslock, numlock...)
Same behaviour under mce and winfast (leadtek tv app). Win start scanning, and after 10 seconds, screen goes black and hdd led stopped and I must reset the pc.
I tried the 5.13.22.6115 whql driver (vista 32b) without success. I also tried to find a generic conexant cx2388x driver for seven, but I don't.
I saw on some forums that it seems to work sometimes.

Does someone manage to make it work ?

Here is the answer from Leadtek:

Dear customer!

Thanks for your contact.
Unfortunately, it has already phased out for a long time.
So the chip of it might not be supported to Windows 7.
But you can try to use the driver for Vista to install.
Sorry for your inconvenience.


Latest vista driver (5.13.22.6115) doesn't work in seven. But, some people manage to make it work by installing it under vista and migrate to seven. The driver 'migrates' and works with seven.
So there is some way to install this driver under seven so that it works.
If someone has an idea ?

You can try installing it under administrator or compatibility mode. Also some people have have success with drivers installing in safe mode.

hmmm

I'm not sure it will change something... the driver install correctly without errors. Device manager is clean.
It is just when I want to use it that it crashes.

Anyway, I will try to install it in safe mode.

After that, I will try to use DriverMax (I found this tool in a sticky topic). It can backup a vista installed driver and re-install it under seven.

And at last, I will install a new vista, the driver and upgrade to seven

I uninstalled all pvr2000 drivers and re-install them in safe mode (I can only install 2 of them, the others don't appear in safe mode).

I reboot in normal mode and install other ones. The channel scanning always crash the pc.

I installed a new fresh vista, and I will try tonight to migrate the drivers from vista to seven.

Sorry to hear you are having troubles let us know and good luck. Possibly someone else can help you that has more expeience with this problem. I will do some searching also. This link was under PvR2000 Is this the driver you are using? Have you tried compatibility mode?

Thank you for your help.

5.13.22.6115 is the vista 32 driver I used. I also find some other files, but none of them work. 5.13.22.6115 is the last driver and afaik, no more driver will be produced.

I install these drivers manually, from the device manager. There is no compatibility mode to use here. And the installation finishes without errors or compatibilty problems.

Tonight, I will install the driver on my fresh vista 32 and then export it with driverMax and import it in seven...

I installed vista 32b with pvr2000 latest drivers and... same thing

It seems my new mb m4a78 doesn't like this tv card
(No problems with my old asus m2npv-vm.)

I will make some search on that problem, but as the mb is quite new, it is unlikely that I find something...
