ATI TV PCI and Radeon 9000 64 MB Compatibility

I just upgraded my MB, processor and video card. I have the legacy ATI
TV-PCI card. It will not seem to work with the new Radeon 9000 video card.
Are these compatible? I get an error about incorrect video drivers or
another device using the video. It worked fine with my old Voodoo video
card. I am running Win 98SE. I have tried removing the hardware in device
manager and re-installing the drivers. I did notice that the Radeon install
loaded a newer version of Multimedia Center.

If this pair will not work will the newer ATI TV card work? I think it is
the TV-VE card.

Thanks

You must uninstall all ATI drivers and start over. Take the TV card out,
then boot-up and install video drivers. Get the Radeon working first. When
all OK, then shut down, install the TV card. Reboot, Windows will detect,
cancel and run the TV setup - drivers first, etc. Use only the Multimedia
Center that is made for the TV card. Forget the TV-VE card, no stereo
sound.

Thanks, I will give that a try. I was up until 2 AM getting everything else
to work. You know what a bite it is when Windows will not recognize your
CD-ROM? I have learned the hard way to copy the WIN 98 SE CD entirely onto
the hard drive. I was sure that I would have to re-format and start over
with the MB change but I eventually found a driver for the CD-ROM and
installed all the MB and video drivers. What a pain.



Thanks for the heads up on the TV-VE card - no stereo then. I guess the
latest has fewer features than the old TV-PCI card.

I tried all of these steps and I still get an error saying "The TV player
failed to initialize the video. I am stumped. The Radeon card is working
fine.
