Problems with Miro PCTV & Xentor32

I have a Miro PCTV and a Maxi Gamer Xentor32. When I use any TV software the system hangs... I have updated both PCTV and Xentor32 drivers, and the problem still continues. Any idea?

Is Windows 98 the first or second edition?

Have you updated your system with fixes using WindowsUpdate?

What about updated drivers for not only your devices, but DirectX (also from WindowsUpdate).

I'd then try this:

start-run-msinfo32-tools and run the DirectX diagnostic tests for all your multimedia components and read the results of each test.

May prove fruitful.

If unresolved, please also post your details about setup.  Any error messages?  Any problems or errors in Device Manager either in Normal or SAFE MODE?

Had this to,

the IRQ the card is using (does not have to be shown by windows) is double used, the TV card is "sticking" to your VGA card. There is no solucion for this problem but to buy a videocard that does not use any IRQ.

Possible makes are, ATI / GUILLEMOT.

Sorry, but this is the awnser.
Our testing with TV cards and the new G-froce cards will be in about 3 weeks. If you wloud like the outcome, mail:

good luck,
