ATI AIW Radeon 8500 DV

By hutch_69 ·
1)During installation I get this one -
MS refusing to install UNKNOWN driver pkg.
2)When trying to use TV/Capture -
TV Player failed to initialize
the video.

3)When checking device properties of
the ATI WDM TV Tuner I see this -
"The NTKERN.VXD device loader for this
device could not load the device
driver. (Code 2)
To fix this update device Driver."

The video cards is recognized and works fine
but can not use the TV/Capture feature which
is the main reason I purchased it.

Any help welcomed.

My first question, is what OS are you running?

ATI specifically states that this card is only supported in Me, 2000, and XP.

If you are tring to use it in a different OS, that is your problem.

Also, especially for XP, make sure that you have installed all compatability updates from Microsoft.

Second, have you tried downloading the drivers from ATI's web site?

Often the drivers on the install CD are several revisions old.

Third, do you have the latest AGP mini-port driver for your MB / Chipset installed?
I have corrected many a video driver problem by updating the mini-port driver for the MB.

Finally, do you have the correct, or latest version of DirectX installed?
Many video cards use DirectX calls, so having the correct version of DirectX is critical to proper operation.
