View Full Version : G400 dual and stv fm/tv card?

8th February 2000, 19:09
I've used this stb card before so I know it works, I just installed a g400 dual head and its a great card but I reinstalled my tv card and when I try to run the tv app I get the blue screen of death?
any ideas?

How is the card doing it's TV.
Is it through a pass-through cable, or an internal connector?

If you are using an internal connector, be aware that the header on the G400 is NOT a standard VGA feature connector. It's proprietary to their Rainbow-Runner G cards.

If you are using a pass-through cable, I have no idea...try giving us an IRQ listing for your system.

Its a pci card, thats the only connection it makes aside from the sound cable and the coax cable coming from the outside? It plays audio but video brings the bsod immediately.

I also have a TV tuner card on my computer (askey to be precise), it works wonderfully but just don't want to turn on the secondary display. (if anybody has an idea [excluding rewriting the driver myself]!)

What I know that might interfere with the TV card is the IRQ. It should be a quite high IRQ (9 or more) to work efficiently (At least for my card). Tell us more.
