identifying a pci multimedea device

I have a pci card that  is some type of video capture device and need to identify who the distributere/manufacturer is so i can get drivers.

the only chip that identifys tha card is the largest on the card and it is a philips chip
i have searched the philips co sight and have had no luck i have also cheacked around and have had no luck in finding working drivers. I want to get this card working in the hopes that it is a tv cap card or video cap.

Kirshna, when your system boots, does it recognize the card and provide any ID info in the PCI section of the boot screen?
Can you post markings on this chip ?
what is the FCC-ID number listed on the card?
The first set of letters on the FCC-ID is what signifies the manufacturer that applied for that FCC-ID #.
Once we have this ID, you can go to the FCC website where you can look up the info yourself, or I have access to hundreds of thousands of FCC-ID's on a CD Rom.

Have you tried the Winnov site?  Here's the URL:
They are OEM for Phillips cards. Maybe your card is one of theirs.
Hope it helps,

do you know what the brand name is??
Krishna081697Author Commented:
I am haveing trouble  finding drivers off the intel web page,  know of any direct reseller that may have drivers?
It's an Intel card and was released in 1996. You may have to email them for more information, just use the data that I posted to identify it to them. They filed for an obtained license approval for the card.

i wish to get working drivers bevore awarding you your points but i think your answer is correct its now just a matter of finding drivers from intell or there redistributers.
I have one set of drivers that makes everything happy but, it still will not allow me to view tv. so i am still seaching
Krishna, in all fairness, you asked to identify the card an manufacturer, and that information was found for you. However, even if you accept the answer, I would still continue with you until we both either locate good drivers, determine they aren't to be had or determine that the card doesn't function properly.
Krishna081697Author Commented:
oh i plain on giveing you the points if you want them NOW ok,   I have been participating in this program and have enjoyed your answers to other questions as well.  sorry if you thought i was being unfiar
Not a problem. How have you made out with Intel? Have you checked any other driver related sites? If not, let me know and I'll scan several at the same time!
Krishna081697Author Commented:
I have been through intel's main page no help

Intels page at

lead me to several companys that use simlier drivers (same dlls, etc)
the ads tech drivers work the best,    the drivers will install and be happy for the card.
the sfotware for useing the card is happy,  but it cant access the card to change channels or to even view any video
