AIW 128 TV Tuner issues


T

The Chris

Perhaps you guys/gals have tackled this, but this is my first time in this
newsgroup.

Somebody gave me an AIW PCI 128 card - the one with the coax inputs and
video ins and outs. Contained in the box were old Win98 drivers. I went to
the ATI site and got both the XP drivers, and the newest (7.2) MultiMedia
Center files.

Drivers work - outputs to my TV, File Player works, etc, etc.... but as
SOON as I start the TV Tuner app - I'm locked....

When I look at the actual file dates for the TV Tuner programs, they seem
old - like 2001.

Has this 'issue' ever been solved?? I've look on the ATI site, but it's
just a lot of outdated stuff (Service Pack 2, DirectX 8.0, Win98)

Thanks.

You can get better answers if you can refine which kind of
card you are talking about.

Some cards have different issues and require differnet software.

Not all stated software will work for the ati card.

ATI web site tries to help but they do not always give the best
advise and solves seem to be on a case by case bases. What works
for one fan may not work for another sorry to say.

Some fans will speak right away (short form answer here) that you
"must get the latest drivers" this global answer has for some users
created more problems than solutions sorry to say.

It gets more specific than an "AIW (All In Wonder) PCI 128" card??
That's what I think the box says... I'll check it out and post later...

And I KNOW I have the latest drivers. Like I said, no other issues than
the TV Tuner issue. I've seen something mentioned about 'Hyper-
threading' but, don't know how to address that. I'm wondering if there
are some BIOS things I should be looking at.

Thanks...

I think with the AIW 128 you have to run older an older set of XP
drivers, ie. 6.13.3279, not the newest catalyst ones. I got around this
limitation by buying a white box AIW radeon for $50 (the original),
which has allowed me to use the latest drivers and updates.

The only options I exercised were the XP drivers - which recognized it as
an AIW 128, but, installed Microsoft Drivers - and the newest ones - which
look like the numbers you typed - but, I can't be sure until I go and look
at it.

What is this 'white box' you speak of?? Is it another card?? An OEM card??
Does it have the TV input (coax)???

For some reason, I just want to watch TV on my PC :)

I have used your card in an XP SP2 system, so it should work.

Go to this web forum and do some searching:

I believe the best thing to do is to turn on the error reporting by
following this thread:
http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33675153

Check the last item in the error log and it should show you what terminated
the TV Tuner application. I once had a problem with a Dell sound card
driver which I unistalled and used the default XP driver.

Good luck.

I bought one of those original white box ATI Radeon and also have the
installation cdrom for it.

Right now the agp version is plugged in to a window98se machine as
a plain video display.

As far as Win98se goes I know the tv set of drivers for that os worked
100 % fine.

There nothing wrong with sharing the video cdrom image is there?

Like make a iso and upload it to some newsgroup ?
or bin/cue?

I have the 98 drivers CD - trouble is - I'm running XP.

And no - there's no problem if ATI doesn't have them available - they're
considered obsolete to them.
