I have the same problem. On my 64 bit Windows 7 Version, when I check Device Manager I see VideoMate TV Capture is installed, but VideoMate TV Tuner is nowhere to be found. In order for my Compro VideoMate Ultra to run, I'm sure BOTH those lines need to be present. So far I haven't found a driver that works for me either. The latest Vista 32/64 bit driver that Compro offers at Compro Technology Global_Home didn't help. Neither didthe windows XP version
I'm having the same problem on win 7 32bit. Once worked, but after one restart the driver was set back. I don't know what i did, but after reinstalling the device, it worked. I've tried manual selection for the driver, even forced it to accept XP driver, and the problem still persists. I'm having a 7600GT video card, when the tuner worked, windows updated the nvidia driver to a new one. I think there's the problem.
The following technique may help installing a Compro TV tuner. This technique has given me sound, and I had picture for a slight moment just before the Auto Scan initiated. As of now however, I have sound, but no picture. One thing I have noticed, in the screen that sets Brightness, Saturation, etc, these settings are all grayed out and set to 0.
In a previous post I suggested that 2 devices were required to be listed in the Device Manager. This is apparantly not the case in Windows 7. I only see one Device listed (VideoMate TV Capture) Anyway I'll be interested in finding out if this helps anyone. Be sure you have downloaded and installed the latest 64 bit Vista drivers from Compro. The files I downloaded were ComproDTV_42823.exe and VMHybrid-136600.exe. After installing these two files... Right click on Computer and then choose Properties/Device Manager (upper left corner). Scroll down and double click on Sound Video and Game Controlers, double click on VideoMate TV Capture (or whatever it is called in your system). Click on Driver/Update Driver.../Browse my computer.../Let me pick from a list... Uncheck Show compatible hardware Go up one line to Compro Tech (not Compro Technology Inc.) Play around with the drivers in that list and hopefully one of them will work. Good Luck
I did that, but after i restarted the computer the drivers went back to the original ones. And i saw that the geeforce driver updated itself trough windows automatic updates. i'll try to roll back the video card driver and play around with the compro drivers.
Hi all, I'm having the same problem, sound but no video (win7 RC 32bit)
vista driver in compat mode
unpack vista driver .exe to install from device manager, (but I cant - because there's no .inf in the .exe)
run compro dtv in compat mode
