I have a USB 2.0 MSI VOX tuner card.  Have used it for years with the programs that came with it (i.e. MSI PVS + TV@nywhere - InterVideo WinDVD Creator Plus).  I just upgraded to Windows 10 and the card seems to load correctly, and drivers appear to be normal, and program runs, but I cannot get the card to display TV analog source.  I have Dishnetwork, with 722k DVR, and it outputs the second channel as an analog source.  Therefore, I use an analog tuner card to watch TV on my computer.  I just need the card to access one single channel and I change stations with the Dishnetwork remote.  I have tried accessing the card with various media center programs, including VLC, NextPVR, MediaPortal, and KODI.  Won't work.  I have loaded the MSI PVS + TV@nywhere - InterVideo WinDVD Creator Plus software under Windows 10 and it all seems to work but I get a message from MSI PVS that it cannot find an MSI device.  WinDVD Creator appears to work find, but as noted, I can see the MSI tuner card in my choices, but it will not pull up the signal.  I know the software is working because I have a Logitec webcam on the computer and the software recognizes it and displays the image.  I know it's an old card, but I need something for analog signals.  When the US changed to digital OTA broadcasts, the analog cards became scarce.  The MSI card is small, USB, and perfect for what I need if I can just get it to work.

Since MSI seems to no longer support that old device (I just checked and not even old drivers available) I would think it's about time you moved up in the world to a digital input device. I have an old TV@+ and had to stop using it when even my cable company went all digital, no analog and also had to replace all of my TVs.

The MSI is a digital card.  I can't get the digital inputs to work either.  Tried feeding a digital signal from DVR to the card but cannot get anything to work in Windows 10.
I have two other digital/analog tuner cards, a Vixs and a PlusTV.  The PlusTV works fine in Windows 10 for digital, but not for analog.  The Vixs was part of an HP system and I am still hoping they will support it because it provides for both analog and digital input, but so far, they don't have Windows 10 drivers for it.
The problem is that Dishnetwork outputs a NTSC analog signal on their second channel and a digital card will not process the signal.  I have figured the cost to upgrade Dishnetwork to a Hopper and Joey to get digital on the second TV would be about $25 additional per month.  Lot cheaper to just get the analog card I already paid for to work.  But your right.  No support anymore for the MSI product so I am probably just wasting my time.  I just felt sure I could get one of these three cards to work.

Since I don't use W10 and don't intend to in the future because of problems like you and many others have there's no way I can test for things like you have. W7 :biggthumbsup: , anything newer :biggthumbsdown:
