  • My HTPC is comprised of the following:

     

    AMD 4400+ CPU

    GeForce 8800GTS 640MB

    Hauppauge HVR-1600 (TV Tuner/Capture Card/FM Radio)

    SoundBlaster X-Fi

    3GB DDR

    2TB Seagate HDDs

    Corsair 650W PSU

     

     

    I'm running 32 Bit version Vista Home Premium (though I do have the 64bit DVD)

     

    I use the Hauppauge card to capture Video in MPEG 1/2 format and it works quite well...

     

    Let your video card handle displaying video and get yourself a dedicated Tuner/Capture card...

  • Hello Yoshihiro,

     

    Generally, for the list of video cards certified for Windows Vista 64-bit version, you can see:

     

    https://winqual.microsoft.com/HCL/ProductList.aspx?m=v&g=d&cid=&f=64p

     

    But please note, the ones certified for Windows Vista doesn’t always mean the ones certified for Windows Vista Media Center. Windows Vista compatible video cards may perform differently in supporting Media Center features, depending to their specifications. To get the compatibility information between products and Media Center, you may need to contact the manufacturers of video cards or go to their websites.

     

    After all, the list I provided can be a guide for you to seek further information. Hope it helps!

     

    Cheers,

    Lionel

    Thank you for the information. About some cases of crash in 4GB RAM, the following KB may help:

    Generally, the best support resource for crash issues is the Microsoft Customer Support Service (CSS), but before which the KB article above does worth a try.

  • As far as I can tell, no one aswered your question. You are looking for a 64 bit VIDEO CAPTURE CARD. 
    Good luck. I just tried to install a card, but no worky. Called the company, no drivers for 64 bit system.
    Called two other companies inccluding Lorex, (video surveillance). no near future plans for 64 bit drivers.
    Spent 3 hrs online looking for 64 bit cards, I'm going to give up until someone comes up with the
    drivers.
