ATI TV Wonder USB 2 - Player unable to initialize
on Dec 9, 2004 at 3:34:05 am

This thread is separate from my flicker thread and concerns another PC.

I installed the ATI drivers and MMC 9.0.3 on a new e-machine desktop PC, Athlon XP 2600 512 MB RAM, S3 ProSavageDDR video board. Whenver I tried to acess the TV player, I would get an error and a request to check my PC (the diagnostic checks are successful). The error says "The TV player is unable to initialize the video driver." So I checked the device manager as requested but everything is installed successfully.

I managed to view/play the TV tuner by using Ulead Photo explorer, so I know I can access the ATI Tuner device, but if I attempt to capture, I get a message "Failed to build a preview graph" and I have to exit the module.

Then I tried Windows Media Encoder, capturing to a file, it gave this error: "No specified device driver is present" and I couldn't view the TV.

How can I get this device driver to work? It works on my other machine and I captured 20 min of 8mm tape with it. Here is the listing where it shows, followed by the IRQ listing, both extracted from msinfo32.exe:

Problem resolved by disabling on-board video driver

After 3 weeks of pursuing this problem, I tried adding a PCI video card (NVDIA MX 200) and I disabled the video driver of the S3 onboard graphics adapter of the eMAchines T2615 PC. Simply adding the new card was not enough.. the S3 driver had to be disabled in the Device Manager. Now everything works and the quality of the video is great. I may later switch to a AGP card to improve performance.
