View Full Version : ATI TV Wonder
02-01-2001, 08:00 PM
I actually got my ATI TV Wonder to work great with your software. I am running Win98SE and using Direct X v8. What I did to get it to work was go to the ATI site and download and install the beta drivers for Win2k (contains ATI TV v7.1) with WDM drivers. All the settings are set to DirectShow and directshow video device is set to ATI TV Wonder Conexant Capture. With this setup, everything works great...even the ATI TV software itself.
I hope this helps some ATI users out there.

I've had the same experience--it works great except that I don't get sound after the first recording (sound works the first time, but not thereafter). See discussion at http://discuss.snapstream.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000191.html
Have you had the same problem? Have you tried recording more than one show between reboots?

No I have not had any problems whatsoever. I can do multiple recordings in a row and everything to this point is working fantastic. Not sure what if anything I have done differently, but this setup (finally) works great.

Must be a difference sound is implemented in Win98 (your OS) and Win2k (my OS).
So you are saying that on Win98SE, you have the ATI software installed (V1.0 or 2.0??) and you've updated the drivers with the Beta W2K v7.1 WDM drivers, and not only does SnapStream work, but so does the ATI Software? Is this correct? or did you install the W2K v7.1 software too?

I tried the following and still having problems.
I'm running Windows 98 SE
1. Install ATI TV Wonder 2.0 , drivers and Multi Media Center (MMC)
2. Unzip the Win2K ATI TV v7.1 beta drivers to a directory
3. Re-install drivers for bt848 video and bt848 audio from the directory from Step #2
4. Now, I cannot start the ATI TV viewer, because it says it cannot initialize the video device
5. I try recording using "Directshow", but Snapstream complains that it cannot start "graph", and no video or audio is recorded
6. I try "Windows Encoder" , and it tunes the channel correctly, and records video correctly, however, no audio
7. I try editing the wme profiles, however, windows encoder profile manager does not work when I try to select the audio device to which my tv tuner is wired
I wonder if I would have better luck using windows 2000. Thats my next step.
