    DH67GD and TV Card problems

    schnettker

      Hi,

       

      i have a DH67GD and a TV Card from Terratec (cinergy s2). Without the TV Card runs the system rockstable, with the TV Card i got a BSOD while the PC is booting. The error is a "irql_not_less_or_equal" error on the TerratecPCI.sys. The TVCard is running rockstable on to other Mainborads, the system has 4GB RAM and is running on Windows 7 64bit. I allready tested Windows 7 32bit with no success

       

      Best regards

          Hi,

          I have no true answer for your question. The problem you encounter is often due to a bad driver.

          I have also a DH67GD and installed for some time into the PCI slot an Adaptec SCSI card (39160) and it was working fine, just to say that PCI slot is working at least for this one.

          About TV receivers I have an Hauppauge USB Ministick HD with this system and it is a good solution, for one tuner.

            I do recall another post (that I replied to recently) where someone else was having problems with BSODs and a Terratec TV Card on a recent Intel motherboard. I'd get in touch with both Terratec support and Intel Tech Support about this, as it genuinely does seem like a 'compatibility' issue ie hard to pinpoint one or the other as being responsible by itself but when both are combined, the problem occurs. If you bought the TV card from the same supplier as the motherboard, maybe that shop will swap the card for a different make/model that doesn't have the issue with your motherboard?

              With an Hauppauge TV tuner I've eliminated BSOD and most messages by allowing to record from hibernation.  Any other method or use interferes with the system.

                Hi there,

                 

                same problem here. I have got the same mainboard and a Technisat Skystar HD2 TV card (this card is equal to your cinergy s2).

                I called already the manufacturer of this card, and they told me, that this card and the mainboard chipset are incompatible.

                Several customers contacted them because of this issue.

                 

                I tried already different drivers from different manufacturers (there are several equal cards on the market).

                With the cinergy driver I get the same error as yours. With the Technisat and the Mantis drivers I get the following error after I installed the driver in Windows:

                "This device cannot start (code 10)"

                 

                Is it possible to fix this with a new bios update?

                I saw that there was already a fix for tv cards in bios update BLH6710H.86A.0119.2011.0523.1030

                 

                Best regards

                  Same problem here with the following config:

                   

                  DZ68DB Intel mobo bios, chipset, drivers updated

                  i5-2500K

                  win 7 32 bit all updates completed

                  Technisat CableStar HD2 PCI tuner latest driver from Technisat web loaded

                   

                  Error code 10: can't start the device displayed

                   

                  Tried to disable usb3.0 ports via bios to test any conflict but no resolution.

                   

                  Tuner manufacturer stated that it is known issue with a no solution and only way is to use their external usb tuner.

                   

                  Anyone heard a solution from Intel ?

                    just read that G67GD bios ver 119 has a fix for TV tuners, anyone tested these PCI tuners with G67GD mobo?

                     

                    When to expect to have a tv tuner fix for Z68DB mobo ?

                      Hi,

                       

                      you should not expect a fix for this problem.

                      There's something wrong with the PCI slot, I don't exactly remember what the Intel guy told me in the chat.

                       

                       

                      I bought then this TV-card: Technisat SkyStar 2 eXpress HD

                      This pcie-x1 card works fine on my computer.

                       

                       

                      Regards,

                        For those buying TV cards to suit new motherboards a PCIe card is definitely preferable to ordinary old PCI anyway due to the much higher bus performance capabilities to name just one of many advantages. It may be a smaller slot with fewer connectors but PCIe x1 is still capable of outperforming regular PCI significantly. For those wanting to carry across old PCI cards from previous PCs by all means give it a try in the new one but being aware there may be problems.

                          DH67GD - Hauppage WinTV-PVR-500

                          It's quire a relief that I haven't lost my mind and that other people are ahving similar problems!

                           

                          My woes started at BIOS level - with the PVR 500 in the PCI slot the machine POSTs "Video Error". Stick any old X16 card in (I used an ATI X300 - how's that for an antique?) - the machine then boots and you can get into BIOS. Set it up for IGD and it works well. The PCI-X & PCI configuration screen in BIOS shows both cards are recognised. In the operating system - I tried both Win 7 32 & 64 - neither recognises that the PVR500 is present. Trying the old legacy install routine - 64 tells you to go away "device not compatible with this platform" whilst 32 goes through the routine but BSODs soon thereafter. Doesn't show any installed device though.

                           

                          Remove the PVR500 and the machine boots normally with or without the video card present. Getting more than a bit suspicious, I stuck an old Sunix PCI to serial convertor into the PCI slot - no problems with or without the video card and both 32 and 64 recognise the card in Device Manager and acepts the driver.

                           

                          I've done the experiment with 2 known god PVR500s. Ironically I got rid of some HVR2200 cards last year since I prefer the PQ of the PVR500 for video capture off STBs. I've now used the PVR with 915, 925, 945, 975, Series 3 and 4 MBs without any problems. Where to Intel with adherance to specs and protocols?

                           

                          Me thinks somebody took their eye off the ball and screwed the pooch instead. Pood doggy! Probably engineering resources got pushed into Thunderbolt.

                           

                          My config - i5 2500K, 2 X 4Gb Kingston Hyper X, BIOS #0128.

                           

                          Has anybody tried the Hauappauge HVR2200 in the DH67GD? I'm loath to spend more money on such an obviously slap-dash engineered product and will probably junk the piece of crap.

                            I had a WinTV PVR (although I think not as flash as the 500) on my second ever PC and it was a Pentium Pro 200 - going back a bit to say the least! As you mentioned Marius, you've not lost your mind and these new chipset boards simply have problems with many (but not all) PCI TV cards.

                             

                            I understand you're angry that your new board doesn't work with your old PCI TV card but if you really are going to throw out your board, at least consider donating it to a charity or someone who will make good use of it with no hesitation!

                              Has anyone tried tinkering with the PCI Latency Timer in the BIOS? This "limits the clock cycles that a PCI device can hold the PCI bus". If it's set too high, I could see where it might cause the OS to blue screen. Too low and a slow device would not work. Just a thought.

                                anyone tried the PCI tv tuner that didnt worked on H67 or Z68 but on Q67 ? Q67 has native PCI support while others use PCIe to PCI bridge:

                                  Does anyone know if there has been any progress on this issue?

                                   

                                  I just built a new home server system using a DH67BL... got everything working without my PVR-500, slipped it in, no boot! I tried with the latest BIOS, but no good.

                                   

                                  It seems the board thinks it's a video card?

                                   

                                  I'm assuming this will be fixed... PCI support is pretty fundamental surely! If not I'd like to know so I can RMA the thing.
