PEAK single tv tuner 103906AGPK driver wanted

Q: PEAK single tv tuner 103906AGPK driver wanted

Hi there, I got 64bit win 7 pro for Christmas, only problem my tv card no longer works. I can not find 'the' or 'a' driver for the above model.

I have the original xp/vista driver disc,both XP/vista 32/64 and note that the card is still being sold. If the card is still being sold "With win 7 support" then someone may have a copy of the driver laying around.

Could you please help me out and put up a link or such?

Many thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I am trying to use a TV Tuner card out of an HP m7357c Media Center PC in a different PC. It is an Asus PVR-416 tv fm tuner card. I can't find a driver anywhere. I am looking for a driver to work with Windows XP. I tryed the HP website but it only offers and update for the driver, not the driver itself. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

A:Need a TV Tuner Driver

The driver for the card listed for that system is listed here
under driver graphics (2).
The driver for the card you listed is here....
The update is the driver.
From the file size and the chipset,I would guess they are both similar.
This was made for media center,so I doubt there is any
software included for playback on a non media center XP.
You would need to find software to play TV with.

Hi there
Type of Tuner -- Pinnacle / Hauppage etc.

If it's a Hauppage one then W7 will probably find the driver otherwise look on the Hauppage site.

For Pinnacle same thing.

Currently the applications both for Pinnacle and Hauppage don't work properly on W7 but for some tuner cards, usb plug ins, and express PCI cards the Windows Media Center seems to work.

Own a Compaq 5838 - 500mhz AMD Athlon processor running under Windows 98 SE. Updates are current.
Installed ATI All-In-A-Wonder 128 Pro TV tuner card. Everthing ran fine. Then installed Windows Media Encoder 7. That installation went fine also. Had a problem keeping encoder up, but was able to adjust bandwith and power saving settings. Again everthing seemed to go fine. Left PC on for a while. When I came back monitor was blank (monitor light was yellow) but could hear audio. Had to hard boot PC. After that lost TV Tuner. Everytime I'd start to load it, get error message:

Can't load Video driver
Video Board not detected
Hardware may be improperly installed or resource may be in use by another application.

Have uninstalled ATI software and Media Encoder software and reinstalled just ATI software (numerous times) with the same result. Have emailed problem report to ATI. Am awaiting results. But would like to get your thoughts. If your wondering why I loaded Media Encoder, was trying to broadcast TVFromHome. Just in case your familiar with product. Would appreciate some input.


A:ATI TV tuner driver won't load

Welcome rovalenti,

I would start by checking to make sure you don't have any conflicting resources. Since you say you've uninstalled and re-installed, you may have more than one listed in device manager.

Start button, settings, control panel, system, device manager, and what is showing up (if any, with yellow exclamation marks or red x's). Also, post back what is showing for your video card. When you check the properties on it, what is it saying? Also, from there, can you attempt to change the driver and point it to either the cdrom that came with the card, or if you've downloaded updated drivers, then to that directory?

I decided to install Vista today, I knew I most likely couldn't get something to work on it, but that was a concern for later. Anyway, everything went fine etc. until I wanted to install my TV Tuner. Obviously (though I did try it) the drivers that were on the disc I got with it didn't work because they are for 98/ME/XP so I went to NVidia.com to get a Vista driver (it is however the DualTV driver, please don't tell me that NVTV is discontinued ). When I open it however I get the message :

The current language is not supported by the Device Driver Installation Wizard.

Contact the vendor that provided you this package.

I tried lots of things to make it work, including uninstalling all stuff that could have anything to do with the tv tuner however as the error displays, its most likely something else.

I got Vista Ultimate 64 bit (yes i downloaded the 64 bit driver too), language is Dutch and my TV Tuner is a NVidia NVTV TV Tuner.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello !

friends , I am using a tv tuner and capture card,the brand is Adcom Its a pretty good card and the reception is quite ok.
there are some channels that look good on my tv but aren't clear at all, on my tv tuner . I agree that the television is pretty well equiped to handle poor reception but still I wonder if a solution is there to improve the reception on my tv tuner ??
My second question is that, are there any updated drivers or any general drivers for tv tuners available on the www??

and lastly I am not too pleased by the software utility for watching tv and the features are quite limited, are there any universal software's available for watching tv/capture or are we restricted to the software utility given by the manufacturer???

Hi, Ive been searching and searching for a driver for my TwinHan card and most fail to install on my Vista RC1 x64 setup.

After many weeks trying to figure out the problem, I have altered the TwinHan BDA drivers and they "actually work", the biggest problem being that it requires you to disable the "forced signed driver" in the F8 bootup menu.

As far as I know they don't actually work in Windows Media Center, but I have also found a way around that too.


is the new Beta software released by TwinHan, and it actually works with Vista !!

Here they are:

First, the drive does not need any special driver installation. CD/DVD drives all use the generic driver in Windows.

But if you are looking to upgrade the drives FIRMWARE:

But, if the drive is not recognized by the system, or will not read or write, then you could have a faulty drive or an OS error. If you describe the symptoms you are trying to fix we may be able to give better help.

Hi donatello.

Firstly, check your Control Panel> Add/Remove programs to see if the items are there and can be removed. If not-

You could try this. Click on START>My Computer. If the directory tree is not showing down the left hand side of the screen, click on the Folders icon (next to the SEARCH button) and click on DESKTOP at the top. All of your Desktop items should now be showing in the right hand window. Try deleting the ones you don't want now.

Icons on your actual desktop are only shortcuts to the program (normally in C:/Program Files) so you should find them there. Deleting program files is not recommended and can cause problems, so if you do need to delete them from there, always Right Click on the Folder, choose EXPLORE and see if there is an uninstaller first.

Good luck, and let us know how you get on.
