GT-P6000 Tuner problems with WIndows 7 64-bit

GT-P6000 Tuner problems with WIndows 7 64-bit
« on: February 15, 2010, 02:25:55 pm »
I have a Windows 7 64-bit PC with a Gigabyte GT-P6000 TV tuner card. I am using the latest drivers and Utility. The video stream freezes after a few minutes of watching and can't be re-started. I have tried this with the PVR software (Newsoft) as well as VLC and other video viewing software. The result is the same - fater a few minutes, the video freezes.

The PC has 4Gb memory and is using an ATI Radeon HD 3400 graphics card.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Ken

Do you get any freezing when playing a game or any other kind of video playback?

Looks like the GT-P6000 is PCI, would it be possible to try it in another computer?

Hi, no other freezing or any video problems although I am not a gamer but videos and DVD's play fine.

I can make a plan to test it on another machine.but it will take a few days and it is running Win 7 32 bit, not 64 bit so different drivers.

You could try using it on the Win7 32bit PC anyway? Also you say you're using the latest drivers - have you tired using older driver versions? A BIOS upgrade for your motherboard maybe worth a shot :)

personally i wouldnt go with a bios upgrade

I suspect its the drivers. Essentially the program freezes, even after a task manager close down? I suspect its not releasing the drivers.

Does the driver start as a service? type services.msc if its in there stop/start the service. If i am right you only get the ability to use it again when you reboot right?

The issue is a bad driver, I am sure of it

I could be wrong, but im postive its not a motherboard bios issue, and as a rule i always flash a bios any bios as a last resort anyway!
