I got a winfast tv2000 expert tv card, the latest drivers & application, downloaded & installed tonight. I can watch tv ok, but as soon as i record the system hangs instantly.
Anyone come across this & fixed it?

Umm, so u have the drivers from 10/6/05?

From here?


They came out just a few days ago. And the program dated 1/6/05?

From here?


Are you recording to the hdd I take it, not directly to DVD?? I have the same tuner.

Hi Speedy
Yep, I got them from the same place. I haven't tried recording to dvd. I'll give it a go tomorrow.

Does yours work ok?

Umm I use the deluxe as well on this PC.

The deluxe one works when recording to hdd.

I've just reformatted the other PC with the Expert.

I havent tried burning to DVD tho.. Does yours give u the option to burn to DVD (it doesnt show cant use beside this option)?

I'll test it tomorrow, and let you know...

So, when it hangs u have to reboot?? Or can u kill it with ctrl-alt-del?

You could try checking event viewer. See if it shows u why it hung.

Nothing in device manager, is conflicting with the tuner is it?
