TV Tuner Programs

I have an old Voodoo 3500 video card that has a tuner on it. The software I have for it came with the card, but it won't load on my computer anymore. Does anybody know about some software that will work with a card this old? I have Windows XP.

Windows XP should have a built in TV tuner capability built into it.

Not sure if these links help...

I'm not sure where to access the TV Tuner that comes with XP. I wasn't aware it had one.

I might be wrong so dont take my word for it, but I could've sworn I've seen it say it does. I could be thinking of Media Center.

Abecx, yes it's only XP Media Center that has those funtions.

You can try this; HTPC.net the program has plugin's for a TV tuner but I'm not sure if it needs the original software to work. I have both, this util and my original software and it works fine.

XL, did the original software not work? I've got the same card (haven't used it in a long time) and have used it on WinXP before. I've got the original CD if you need it and I think I've got some XP Drivers at home that I downloaded from there website a while back.

Go download Dscaler. Its free and it gets a better picture than any other TV tuners I have seen. Its very tweakable so you might need to play with it some to get it working on your particular card.

The CD doesn't work for some reason. I have two, and they both don't work, I have no idea why. If Dscalar doesn't work, I'll see if your CD works.

chris, I am trying Dscaler right now, and it is a little confusing. First of all, in the bottom right hand corner where it says "DF/S" and has a number by it, what does that mean?
