Deactivate the OSD in the settings.

The solution can be found at:

using Google translation tool from Netherlands langague (I think) to get details.

Like you, I had the "System.ArgumentException" and "System.Drawing.Graphics.scaleTransform" etc problem with TVCenter Pro 5.4.1 on Windows 7 x64 and Pinnacle PCTV 310i internal PCI card. I really wonder why pctvsysems has not provided you with a such a simple workaround. It has taken me several hours (installing, desinstalling, drivers change, consulting English websites...) to find this.

I also had a TODO <File description> error. A simple workaround is to set "Windows Vista" compatibility on COMAP.EXE file in the C:\Users\[your accound name]\AppData\Local\Temp folder. Do not worry the tunning will remains even if the file is deleted and recreated. This solution can be found at :

Check this and leme Know!!!

Thanks Steve, it worked only now I get no sound from the PCTV and have tried everything in the PCTV Audio set-up, only the audio out is blank and won't let me change.

Not helping is the selling of all the Pinnacle Sys hardware to Hauppage with neither giving any real support.

It really shouldn't be this difficult, agree?

Thanks again,
