ok so I've discarded my old DVico Lite tuner cards and bought a new Leadtek DVT 2000 DS tuner card to replace them for use under Windows 7 (32 bit).

Afer installing the card windows 7 doesn't seem to recognise it, it identifies it as being a high definition audio device. I tried installing the drivers off the disk that came with it but windows 7 says its driver is the best one for the hardware. I downloaded the latest driver and tried installing that, same result. I manually install both drivers, same result, it simply won't recognise the card for what it is.

One other piece to the puzzle, I'm using the ASUS motherboards onboard sound which is also listed as a high definition audio device. There is a code 12 resource error between this and the tuner card, I'm presuming they both want to use the same IRQ address (IRQ 17). The sound card is getting priority and I'm guessing this might be the reason why W7 can't properly identify the tuner.

Anyone come accross this or have a solution (and don't bother suggesting switching off the onboard sound, already tried that).

I can't offe you a solution but perhaps a bit of hope since I have the same card working happily with Windows 7 using Ledteks's driver.

However, I am not using the same motherboard as you are.

Thanks Oz.

If you get a chance could you let me know a couple things, first being what the device is listed as under device manager, i.e. is it just listed as the DTV2000DS or are there other multiple listings for it? Also, what category is it listed under i.e. sound/game devices etc, do you have a listing for a High Definition Audio Device?

Another thing I noticed, I'm sure I read somewhere that the card requires a PCI 2.3 connection, I just found that the motherboard PCI slots are PCI 2.2 (I think), which would explain why W7 isn't detecting it properly. I need to have a look and see if I can find a Bios upgrade that fixes it but I don't like my chances. I can feel a full upgrade comming on (boohoo).
