    Hi:



    I am using Windows XP with a Asus Silicon WDM Video Capture card.

    I installed media poratl successfully, but in the TV set up wizard, it says that it cannot find any video capture cards. It does not seem to be seeing my TV tuner card. Help?????

    I am not very technical, so i don't really understand chip sets etc. can someone give me a staright forward explanation and perhaps some tips to fix this?

    Thank-you

    I have googled the above card, and even gone to the Asus website, and search found so little information about it, that i cannot say whether it would work with MP.

    Does it come with BDA drivers, if so use graphedit to get the information so it can be added.

    Because they do not know the answer, or possibly, understand the question, also the right person has not seen your post who could answer you.

    Unfortunately this is a rare card (here anyway) and not being able to find much info about it on the asus website, does not give me high hopes.

    Thanks

    Thank-you for your input. I will try to find the specs for my TV Tuner card and re-post.

    I hope the other gentleman finds an answer to his query as well.

    same problem

    Exactly the same problem with my ASUS My Cinema card, same model, except for my dual Analog/DVB-T version. Cannot be detected, latest drivers (tried lover versions too). Card listed as a supported one. Anyone got a clue?

    SOLVED

    The error is in hardware ID specified in the capturecardefinitions.xml (in MediaPoral folder) file for this card as I found in other parts of this forum. You can get it to work by finding this card model in the file and rewriting its ID ending from D0 to D1 (d0 to d1). This helped my card to be detected straight away.

    solution

    Works for me. Be sure to check your card Hardware ID in system properties and the card IDs in the file I posted about. Might be a different model of ASUS My Cinema you are using - mine in Dual and the ID is wrong for me in the file.
