Windows 7: tv tuner not working

tv tuner not working

every time i run windows i get two drivers with a yellow exclamination mark beside it.

Conexant does not help you at all on their website, and HP does not help at all because i have windows 7 not their 5 year old windows MCE

The two drivers i need are
Conexant 2388x MPEG Encoder (Dual-Input)
Conexant 23800 Video Capture (Blackbird NTSC Dual-Input)

each time i try to uninstall and reinstall them i get an error.

the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with Windows. Contact the Hardware vendor for a new driver (Code 48)


This is weird because it worked fine on windows xp, but not windows 7 no drivers for it??? and if not how would i request them to get that driver??



Thank-you very much for the help.

Hello Ryan, welcome to the SevenForums.

Please do not double post; you have this same (word by word) post on Graphic Cards. - Thread deleted by Dwarf.

Back to the topic: have you tried to install these drivers on compatibility mode choosing XP?

hey sorry about multi post, did not know where to post it...



what do you mean by compatibility mode chosing XP? I have tried to install that windows virtual PC, but it does not do anything since it is a driver, and i have the XP drivers installed, but that does not work.

You make me now a little bit confused. Anyway, here we go:

If you have installed Windows Seven on a virtual machine running in Virtual PC, you can not install any graphics drivers. VPC runs on emulated environment using its own drivers.

Your computer is already a bit older. The drivers HP is offering are meant to be used in a XP system. To install these drivers on Win7 you first have to download them to your computer. Right click downloaded driver installation packet, choose Properties from menu. Click Compatibility tab, check the box Run this program in compatibility mode for, choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

It might work.

do you know the brand and type of the TV tuner?

Conexant is the chip manufacturer, and their chips are used on several TV cards.
