Vista 64 only recognising my hybrid tv card as an analog one.

I have a Asus Tiger 2 hybrid device.

It was hard enough finding a 32 bit vista driver for it but found none for 64 bit

its a Phillips semiconductor SAA713x series

I managed to get a generic driver but its only recognising the analog device and not the freeview part of it.

Any advice?

Bumping.

The Philips SAA713x is a widely supported chipset used by most manufacturers and Windows's generic driver does support it.

Uninstall your drivers and use Windows update to download the generic driver. If you are using 4GB of RAM or more there are issues whereby the driver has a bug expecting the card's PCI memory location to be inside the 4GB area but what happens is that it has shifted outside the 4GB limit but is not being addressed in the 64 bit manner.

Another issue is that maybe your software supports only one tuner and to use the other tuner you need to go to a menu to select a different tuner - a hybrid tuner does not allow both tuners to be used at once.

I would have expected the digital tuner to work better than the analog tuner in terms of driver support. Windows BDA drivers are very simple as they read a digital stream whereas the older WDM drivers for analog cards require real-time encoding.

It may also help to provide information on which software application you are using to view your TV. You can use GraphEdit to test your BDA drivers but it is not intuitive and requires quite a lot of in depth knowledge. You could try the trial version of PowerCinema to see if it recognises your digital tuner ([url]www.cyberlink.com[/url]). I know the SAA713x chipset is supported by PowerCinema in both analog and digital form.

OK try the other option I suggested with regards to using Windows update.

Sorry I've got it wrong. Vista x64 is not supported by Philips SAA713x chipsets. I am surprised you got the analog tuner to work at all.
