Pinnacle Pctv Hd

Q: Pinnacle Pctv Hd

I have the above hardware to watch TV on my computer which connects through a USB. All the TV channels come through with good picture and sound except for channel 34 which has a good picture but all I hear is static. I emailed Pinnacle for support and received the following fix, but it doesn't make since. Wouldn't this "fix" keep the computer from starting up after reboot?

Thank you for contacting Pinnacle Support.

Regarding your issue, please try to do the process that I have provided you before scanning for channels and see if the same problem will happen.

Click Start
- Click Run
- Type "MSconfig" in the Run command prompt
- Click "selective startup" on the main page
- Click on the "Startup" Tab
- Click "Disable All"
- Click the "Services" Tab
- Check "Hide all Microsoft services"
- Click "Disable All"
- Uncheck "Hide all Microsoft services"
- Click "Apply"
- Click "OK" or "Close"
- Reboot PC when Prompted

Please feel free to reply.

Regards,

Ajay Y.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Pinnacle Pctv Hd

I sure hope you don't follow their advice. I would only disable one at a time. I would also check the startup list tab at the top of this page and check each process before disabling it to make sure that something won't screw up

I just bought Pinnacle PCTV USB 2.0 55e/150e. I actually bought it for my laptop which is running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The drivers which came with the package contain windows XP drivers only. So I tried it on my Desktop which is runs Windows XP Professional SP2. But still I had problems. I installed the software as indicated in the quick start guide. After the Pinnacle Media Center 4.0 was installed I restarted my computer and tried to scan for channels. (I used my Cable TV cord for input). But it always scanned and found no channels (this same Cable TV works well with my TV). Then when I tried to access TV from the Media Center there came an error message : No TV Device found. I reconnected and checked all the connections. Everything was Ok. Then I searched for drivers online the ones I got on were on the Pinnacle Windows Vista Pledge. They said to download Pinnacle Media Center patch 4.7. But the size of the file is 251 MB. I use a slow dial-up connection. It will take me 15 to 20 hours downloading such a file even while using a download manager.

I need help with this. Is there any way I can download only the drivers without the Pinnacle Media Center? So that I can use my TV Tuner Device with Windows Media Center (on Windows Vista).

Has any member used one of these: Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick Just curious what you think of it's operation.Have you tried it with Vista?Thanks in advance.

A:Pinnacle Pctv Hd Pro Stick (usb)

It says that it's Vista certified, and I do know (speaking from experience) that Avid (the makers of Pinnacle) is a top end company when it comes to professional video editing and whatnot. If it were me, I'd buy it because I know the company that makes it is reputable. If you buy it and don't like it.......you can mail it to me.

I recently installed Pinnacle PCTV MediaCenter on my computer and now I can't seem to play .mpg files off websites anymore.

I can play all the usual files, I can play .wmv off of websites, etc. The only thing that doesn't work is .mpg off of websites. However, if I "Save As" the .mpg, the file works fine.

I know it's the Pinnacle program causing it because I did a system restore and the files worked fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've tried everything I can think of (reinstalling WMP, upgrading to 11, various other things that did not work).

Edit: Actually I installed the program from a CD; It's late and I just put D/Led in the title. Also, WMP claims C00D11CD error when I try to play the .mpg files. Though this doesnt' help at all seeing as that is a very general "something is wrong" error.

Here's the deal. I have had this videocard to capture analog video for two years and it's been working fine until I got a virus a few months ago. This virus forced me to use my XP installation CD to reload up everything. So basically I have two XPs that load up in MSDOS mode (one with the virus that will not allow the computer to load past MSDOS mode and the other that I am using right now). I had to reinstall all the hardware and software I had in my other XP as well. The only thing that still won't work is my video capture card. It keeps saying that this device is being used already. Of course I already know it's probably due to the fact that it runs under the virus-ridden XP but since I have no way to access it I am at a loss. Is there ANYWAY I can get this stupid thing to work? I have made all the available software and hardware updates from Pinnacle and Microsoft. Please help me any way you can.

First: winxp pro sp1 all major and most minor updates
intel p4 2.8, maxtor 40gig 7200, geforce fx 256mb video newest drivers, audigy sound, dvdrw.

I cannot get pctv audio and video to sync. I have tried moving the card to another pci slot, same problem. I have all the updated software from them and from MS.

I thought it may be the software not playing well with other software so, get this, I reformated my computer, took off all hardware not needed, and only installed the pinnacle software after all updates/ software patches were completed. It acts just as it did with the preformatted pc.

I thought it may be my sound card somehow supplying the lag, but if I listen to the audio out on the tuner card, the same lag is there without passing thru the sound card, so it cant be the sound card.

There are no IRQ conflicts.

Calls to tech support are a test of patience, waits are LONG to talk to anyone, (still not sure anyone is actually answering the phones, and its a toll call).

Card is well seated, card is brand new and showed no physical defect. ALL other software and hardware on my pc work famously.

I find myself to be pretty tech/computer savy, but I dont understand why the sound and vid isnt syncing up.

Any help?
 

A:Pinnacle pctv audio video lag

Sorry to say I have nothing helpful to add, but wanted to let you know you're not alone. I have been trying to resolve the audio lag problem for some time (Pinnacle 'people' N/G).

It hasn't been like this since install (couple years?) but only in the last month or so. I currently do NOT have SP2 updated (I will hold off on that as long as possible) and nothing has really changed in my system. Use Spy Sweeper, CWS, Spybot and RegClean. I was thinking maybe something got canned during a sweep?

I too would welcome any responses to this audio lag problem.

Thanks!

Hi,
I've recently hooked up my XBOX 360 to my old Pinncale Rave tv card. I am using 5.50 of thier old software. It all comese up fine, the problem I am having is that sometimes I get a ghosting effect. This happens 80% of the time. I've tried all the settings I can find to elliminate this but it seems to dissapear at random. I've tried all the interlaced, deinterlaced, single field modes. I've also checked no sound / electrical devices are closeby that could be causing interfearance.

I hooked up Virtual Dub program to test the capture dvice on that program. I got the same error. I could apply a filter of deinterlace and it fixed it. But in order to record in Vdub I have to compress to keep it running at a playable speed, greatly reducing the output video.

If I record in 320 x 240 resolution everything is perfect. But choosing the 720 x 576 res mode for a better picture its luck to get it working. I know it can work as i've used it several times with no ghosting. But since this morning it seems not to want to help me out.

Anyone have a clue what it could be or a fix for it? Would be greatly appreciated!

Q: pctv

I brought a new graphics card (Riva Vanta TNT2 PCI) a while ago and had some trouble installing that, but it works ok now. But now my pctv (MM100PCTV, made by the Brooktree Corporation) will only work in preview mode, with a terrible frame rate which then forces you to have a tiny screen size to be able to make out whats going on. In overlay mode, which I guess must be the default that I had before, it worked fine on full screen. Is this to do with the drivers, since I heard Brooktree was brought by another company which might make it hard to find a driver for download.

It seems I have a weird issue. Okay, so I installed an external TV tuner, PCTV Media Center 100e by Pinnacle Systems. Now when I watch DVD's or listen to CD's using another program other than the Pinnacle Media center, the audio skips every few seconds. This did not happen before I installed the media center. But, suprisingly, when I watch the same DVD or listen to the same CD using Pinnacle media center, ta da! it works fine. so, i checked the driver to my DVD/cdrw drive and it says that it is provided by microsoft, but when i click "driver details" it says that the driver is called Pinnacle Systems gmbh. does that not seem strange. is this a known problem, that such a program like media center can hijack drivers causing other programs not to function properly but for their program to operate just fine?

I had the same problem using Dazzle's MovieStar software. They had me jump through hoops changing just about every thing on my system.

Could be the conversion software you used to convert it to WMV, since WMV is not of itself any worse than MOV as far as video quality is concerned.

Results from different third-party converters on the other hand can vary in quality from being "as good as the source file" to being "very poor" (especially free ones). So it may just be you used a converter which doesn't give good results.

About 20 minutes into the rendering of a VHS tape I'm converting to DVD (after editing), the rendering just stops. The program still responds, but no error messages come up. I'm rendering to a separate HDD than the one Windows and Studio 8 are on like Help suggests, but it still won't render. Any ideas?

My specs (I know, I need a new computer):
Gateway
-Windows XP Service Pack 2, upgraded from Me
-AMD Athlon 1.2 GHz
-20 GB and 80 GB master/slave IDE hard drives
-256 MB RAM
-ATI Radeon 7000
-Generic single-layer DVD+-RW drive, probably 4x
-Non-working CD-RW drive (won't eject, light won't stop blinking, Device Manager doesn't recognize it - worked fine up until maybe four or five months ago)
-Pinnacle Studio version 8.8.16.0 Quickstart

A:Has Anyone Used Pinnacle Studio 8 Or 9?

In the movie editor, you have to click on the frame you want to edit, which in this case would be the menu screen. No go to the sound editor and add whatever sound file you would like. Adjust the amount of time the frame is viewable to match the sound track you want to use. I use pinnacle studio version 9. Love the program. Hope this helps.
