TV Tuner Card and Vista Ultimate

by menelaus7 / August 21, 2007 12:11 PM PDT

Hello -

I have a desktop pc running Vista Ultimate. I recently bought a Diamond Xtreme TV PVR660 usb 2.0 to run my satellite tv through the computer. The TV tuner is an external device. I set everything up, with the cable running from the wall to the cable box, which runs to the PVR and then to a USB slot. The included software for the PVR is not Vista compliant (and I was told would not be). Diamond recently added Vista drivers to its site for download for the PVR which worked fine. Diamond told me that the included remote will not be updated for Vista.

I installed the drivers and went to Media Center. I went through the "set up TV" option and everything worked fine through the first few steps. I even saw the picture from the TV on my computer as I was supposed to. Then I got to the next step. It asked me for my IR Receiver and said that one was not detected. I assume they want a remote or something, but the remote that came with the PVR is not Vista compliant (and will not be) and I do not know how to work around this problem and I need help. Any ideas are welcome. Thank you in advance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
