Hi

I have 2 tuner cards installed on my PC - one PCI and one USB. These have previously worked fine but since I migrated to a new machine I can only use one.

I've attached logs. The scenario was this :

1 - attach the USB tuner and boot up
2 - scan for channels on the PCI card (runs OK)
3 - scan for channels on the USB tuner - it crashes after about 30-40 seconds

The system works fine with just the PCI tuner.

Thanks

John

    Just a thought... There's a patch that you need to install on XP to fix something to do with DVB tuners. I can't remember what the symptoms of not installing the patch are but I think one of the problems was with multiple tuners. Is it possible you haven't installed it on the new machine and it needs it?

    This is the patch I was thinking of: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...ner-issue-channel-scan-crash-windows-xp-6344/
    Actually it doesn't seem to mention anything about multiple tuners... don't know where I got that idea from. I'm sure I remember something about a problem with multiple tuners being fixed by a patch/hotfix though.

    Today I did send a reminder to DD, since 09-2020 no news from them about new drivers. 3.0.2.211 x64 seems to work for me to, but DD told me, those where beta drivers, and some cards did have problems with them. Here you can find stable older drivers, Digital Devices Store But 3.0.3.224 did not work for me, so the latest stable...

    Hello, Since windows 7 is not supported yet by microsoft, I migrated from windows 7 x64 to windows 10 x64. I have a server on which a WinTV-quadHD card is installed. This card worked perfectly before the migration and no hardware change was made (not a single cable disconnected). Since my passage under windows 10 x64, I can't get...

    Nice find there Mr Henry. Wish I had that guide when I stumbled through the driver nightmare that is this device. Attached my copy of the driver zip in case the external web version disappears one day. There is also the option in Device Manager to roll back the automatically installed Microsoft driver (2009/2010) to the working...
