Windows 7: TV Tuner, help please!

7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I contacted Pinnacle about this and they said it was a known error on Windows 7 x64bit and that they're working on a fix, but don't have any ETA on when it will be released for public consumption. So, I suppose, it's problem solved until they do manage to perfect it and optimize the programming for x64bit.

All I have to do in the meantime to avoid this catastrophic melt-down is to NEVER tick "Enable OSD" and also not touch ANYTHING in relation to aspect ratios or the size of the window, asides from maximizing/minimizing. Then it doesn't happen and everything's cool.

VideoSpin, on the other hand, is a whole new beast on it's own. One little misplaced process (i.e. dragging ONE too many scenes in the Edit portion) and it completely melts down. But other than that, it works for what I need and so long as I walk on egg-shells with it, it will continue working for what I need.

Just need to shell out the $15 for the advanced codec packs and it'll be great.

Again, thank you all so very much for your help! Greatly appreciated, as always.

Well like I was saying at the top of the thread Pinnacle is way behind others support wise! The one I had briefly was XP 32bit only. AVerMedia finally got around to introducing some new PCIe model that see 64bit as well as 32bit support for 7. Likewise a few other makes should also be seeing 64bit support as well if you end up looking for something else.

I would have posted in WMC but this seems to be a hardware issue. Device manager only shows one Avermedia tuner. These are identical PCIE cards. In device manager should it not display 2 Avermedia devices? It shows the USB vbox 3560 tuner, it shows an Avermedia tuner. Oddly WMC claims tuner...
