Hi,
has anyone managed to get this TV Tuner working in Windows 7? I don't care about the software, just the driver. When I try and install it, it says "Can't install on this OS version", so I try and run it in compatibility mode for Vista and it still won't work.
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Run in compatibility mode for 'Windows XP SP3' and as administrator, it just installed for me. However I don't actually have the device so can't tell if it actually will work or not! :laugh:

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately that doesn't work for me, it installs, then tells me to restart, so I restart, and then Windows tells me it's failed to install, and in device manager it says it's not installed :(

Are you using 32bit or 64bit Windows 7? The drivers are only for 32bit.

Sorry - should have said in the first post! It is 64bit. On the website, it does say "Support OS: Windows XP SP2/ Vista 32/64bit SP1", so I was sort of hoping it would work!

Hmm, must be a mistake somewhere, as the file download only states "Win2000/XP(32bit)/Vista(32bit) (1345KB)"

Best ask MSI about it: http://support.msi.com

I have worked out a work-around! :p
I searched up what other devices use the same chipset, and after various fails, I found KWorld, and I downloaded a driver for some of the their products: http://global.kworld-global.com/main/support_down.aspx?mnuid=1255&modid=14 and extracted it
You won't be able to directly install it, so you need to right click My Computer, click manage, click on device manager, right click the device, click on Update Driver Software, Browse My Computer for Driver Software, then Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, click on Have Disk, locate the driver folder, and find under 'Driver', 'Data', 'X64', 'AF15BDA.inf', and it will come up with a list of drivers, select AF9015 BDA Device, and install. It should now be working fine :)

hi all, i've just installed win 7 and i installed the digivox in automatic mode for the driver.
it works good, but remote doesn't work. msi support replied me it depends from the vendor and there are no driver for win 7.
does your remote work?
thanx

TBH, I never use the remote, it never did work well for me (when I was using xp), range was rubbish and it seemed really unresponsive, and the battery died after the first few uses, and I haven't been bother to replace it, hence I can't tell you whether it works or not, sorry!

JosephS1992's trick worked on my 64bit Windows 7. Remote doesn't work but I don't need it anyways. Thank you!

Hi,
Been having the same problem, but seem to get stuck when trying Joseph's solution.

Anyone know what drivers you have to get exactly from KWorld? (I assume product category is "DVB-T" and interface is "all", does it matter what product you select?)

I downloaded something, and can find a file called AF15BDA.inf on my laptop. So I think I have done that step correctly.

The problem is, I can't figure out how to access the list of drivers. I followed the steps, and then I got up to "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" but then I get a list of items such as "Bluetooth-radios"/"computer"/"DVD/CD-stations"/etc... Don't know which to select...

Also, the item I was trying to fix the drivers for is called "Bulk-in, interface". Is that even correct?

I'd greatly appreciate any help.

Greetings,
Steven
