Ok so when i ordered all of the parts for my new custom pc around Christmas i also ordered a new Sabrent SBT-TVFM pci tv tuner and after putting the custom pc together i put the card in and i installed all of the software for it and it worked from then on but just recently i am having trouble with the picture freezing and the sound will keep going with the frozen pic.

So anyone have any ideas on how to remedy this annoying situation i was thinking about getting another one in a few months after i save up enough money this one was only about $25.00US.

if no one has any ideas then i could really use some suggestions on an new card. :thumbsup:

You are sure this pci card is the problem?

Have you checked for updated drivers from the vendors web site, or are you using the drivers and software that came with the device?

You could try looking into updating to a USB device instead of the PCI type, it might cause less problems with resource conflicts.

Check this link out at newegg.com Although it includes PCI-E cards, I would look at the USB devices as your next choice of hardware.

Uninstall the drivers and software...reinstall both. Possibly damaged files will not be repaired/replaced otherwise.

That's what I learned from my ATI AIW experiences.
