Windows 7: Older analog to digital converter card not working, Conexant 2388x

Older analog to digital converter card not working, Conexant 2388x

I have a KWorld MCE201 capture card which had been an aging but still important part of my Win XP home theater PC. Specs here:

I upgraded the PC to Win 7 Home Premium x64 and I'm struggling to get this card functioning, mostly due to driver issues.

The XP drivers I have fail to install, even with Admin privileges and running under compatibility mode.

I finally resorted to using one of those driver services (drivermax) and it seems like the drivers were accepted, but the card still fails to function and provide a video signal. There are no error messages related to this card under device manager anymore.

Any one else with a Conexant Cx23880 Video/Audio Decoder + Conexant Cx23416 MPEG-2 video and audio encoder card running on Win 7?

Be aware that a 64 bit OS must use 64 bit drivers exclusively. There is no provision of any kind for using 32 bit drivers in a 64 bit OS. There are technical reasons why this is necessary.

Oh, excellent point! Neglected to think of that in all my frustration.

I did find this thread where folks purported to have a solution, but no one commented on whether they were using x64 or 32-bit OS.

I need updated drivers for Conexant 23880 Video Capture (Blackbird - Microsoft Community

Now I suppose the question is whether I am stubborn/foolhardy enough to reinstall my whole OS as 32-bit just to use this capture card! As I'm using it only as a web surfing/home theater DVR with only 2gb RAM, I'm not really taking advantage of 64-bit tech.
