Default Drivers for Dell USB Digital TV ? - 06-13-2009, 07:52 PM

Hi I got 1 of these today and when connected to my mini 9 it does nothing. In the manual it tells you to go to support.dell.com. I cannot find anything that relates to this, can anyone point me in the right direction ?

many thanks

Fuzzy

From what I understand, the Dell USB tuner is a rebadged hauppauge tuner. You may try looking at the hauppauge site for updated drivers if you can't find any from Dell's site or post the hardware ID for the tuner and someone may be able to help you out.

For example: The Hardware ID for the Hauppauge HVR-850 tuner...



Found the driver at Dell's site for Hauppauge TVT14 but not sure if that is the model# you have but includes the following from hcw17b64.inf:
http://support.euro.dell.com/support...&fileid=280725
Code:
Sms="Hauppauge"
smsbda.name="Hauppauge SMS1000-based"
smsrom.name="WinTV-NOVA-TA (ROM)"
catamount.name="WinTV-NOVA-TA (engineering sample)"
okemoa.name="WinTV-NOVA-T model 18109 (engineering sample)"
okemo.name="WinTV-NOVA-T model 18109"
windham.name="WinTV MiniStick"
windhamdell.name="Dell Digital TV Receiver"
smsdvbttuner.name="Hauppauge SMS1000 DVB-T Tuner"
smsisdbttuner.name="Hauppauge SMS1000 ISDB-T Tuner"
smsbdacapture.name="Hauppauge SMS1000 TS Capture"
smscapture.name="WinTV-NOVA-TA TS Capture Filter"
Disk_Description="WinTV-NOVA-TA Installation Disk"

I tried this but with no results, thanks for the help. I never thought it would be this hard, why do they not come with drivers ? On the product info page it says that it is compatible with the mini 9.

thanks again

Fuzzy

If you still cannot find correct driver, under device manager find this unknown device then right-click on it and select properties. Then under details tab select Hardware Ids and please post here what you find. thanks!
