Hi all,
I have a laptop I can't find the right drivers for the tv card.

MSI MS-1715b Megabook  or  could be 17154-B021AU.
1833Mhz T2400 processor.
Windows 7 ultimate.

The tv card is one that is built inside the laptop, and the antenna socket is on the left-hand side at the back.
Windows says the hardware ID is : usb\vid_14AA&pid_0221&rev_0521&MI_00.

I need the driver and I need the program to view the tv.
I don't know what the viewing program is called. Maybe you can help with that. Windows Media Center wouldn't run it.

The MSI downloads page takes me to the drivers for an L745. I don't know if this is right. The webcam driver from this page worked but the tv drivers don't. The driver installer says that the drivers are installed correctly but windows says there are no drivers for the tv.

I would also like to try a bios upgrade if I can find the right model for the drivers.

P.S.  I tried MSI Live Update 5, and it says all my drivers are up to date ??????

Please help if you can,

You wouldn't think that there would be too much difference between win7 and vista.

If I repartition this laptop Vista, install the drivers and then upgrade to win7, do you think the tv would keep working ??
That is....assuming if it works with vista.

i doubt
 
If I could find out the brand and model of this tuner, I might get the drivers from the company or somewhere else.

That's the idea of contacting MSI. But I can't see how to write to them directly.
 
Also if I knew the name of the program used to view the tv, it might have the right drivers built in.

That link to MSI doesn't work. It gives a 404 error.

USA gives 404.
French is ok but I don't speak french.
Uk doesn't expect to receive issues from Australia and prob won't respond.

Don't click those links, just enter your email then click on "sign in".
It's global support
 
Yes I did that before and it went to a 404 as well....but it's working now.

I will send them a letter and get back here if I find anything out.

Thanks for trying to help me.

Catch ya later.

and yes I have seen the card, it resides in a drawer that slides out after removing one screw.
I could not find any thing written on the tuner board when I removed it to have a look.

Can you show a picture of this 'TV tuner card'?
 
Here it is...The actual size of the board is 64mm x 23mm

MSI came back with : Sorry, the laptop can't support windows 7,thanks!!
 
I have re-formatted the hdd and installed vista ultimate 32bit.
The results are exactly the same as my first post.

I downloaded the 2 drivers for L745, Hybrid and Digital.
The installers say success, but "Digital TV Receiver" still shows up in "other devices" with a yellow exclamation mark in device manager.

The drivers are not installing.

I think the tuner is called MT6000
 
Somehow, during repeated uninstall and reinstall of the different drivers, it is now suddenly working.

It is working really well.

I had it working with media center but I don't like it.
D Scaler doesn't see the card so it's no good.

Now all I need to know is what the original intended program is, to view the TV ???...Probably whatever was originally packaged with the laptop.
