View Full Version : playTV Pro-computer freezes

03-03-2005, 12:39 PM
i recently purchased a pci tv tuner card for my new pc (Prolink PixelView PlayTV)

after installing the drivers and software with no problems, i ran the program to find the computer will freeze :annoyed:

I have since updated to the latest drivers and software for the card, but the same problem happens when i run the tuner program, computer will freeze (lock up )

any idears?
anyone had similar problems?

i am running windows XP

some random PCI gfx card (iv been waiting 5 weeks now for my 6600GT)

maybe it could be the random PCI gfx card?

Try another PCI slot??

Is this the Platinum mobo with PCI and PCI-E?

Did u buy this system, or assemble it yourself?? If u made it up, I would check the manual, see which PCI slot you should be putting this TV tuner card into.

i built the pc a few weeks ago

i have tried the card in all pci slots, to the same results

im running out of idears :annoyed:
