Angel Dual TV Tuner stopped working with Vista MCE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having an issue with the Angel Dual TV Tuner (PCI) with Vista Home Premium on a Dell Dimension 8400. Instead of appeaing as "Angel MPEG Device" in the Device manager, it appears as "Multimedia Video Controller" and  cannot find the drivers. It used to work correctly but changed around May 6th. Are you aware of the problem? How can it be fixed?
     
    Thanks,

  • Eric,

     

    The exact same thing happened to me around the same time.  I have an 8400 with vista ultimate.  To further complicate things I also upgraded my video card at the same time from an ATI x300 to an NVIDID 7950GT so I don't know if it is a video card issue or a vista issue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I contacted the tuner card manufacturer, and they confirmed the board had gone bad. Dell ships refurbished parts and I've now received two refurbished replacement boards that were broken when they arrived and a third that worked for about 3 months beofer going bad. Quality support!
