Specs: Windows Vista, Core i7/DDR3 6GB
I'm having a major issue. Heres the info, I need your guys help with ideas and ways to fix it. Core i7, 6GB ram, Vista Home x64bit & Windows XP x64. Currently installed GeForce GTX9800+. Installing new device "Diamond ATI all in wonder HD" tv tuner. All I want to do is connect a COX cable to my PC and configure digital TV cable to watch it on the PC screen. My PC screen is 23' HDMI with VGA and DVI input. The main GPU is input through VGA. I installed the new tv tuner card in a PCIe slot and have ran into so many problems, and attempted so many things, I need advice on a difference approach. Here is a drawing of how the setup was at one point below.

Also when I switch my monitor to HDMI/DVI input nothing appears. It automatically switches to VGA again.

error message 1:

error message 2:
"the catalyst control center is not supported by the driver veriozn of your enabled graphics adapter. Please update your ATI graphics driver, or enable your ATI adapter using the displays manager"

any help is very very well appreciated. I'm usually not stupid at this stuff.

What's the exact model number of your ATI AIW card? One of these?

Well yeah, you're using a GeForce video card...that's to be expected.

Yes that is the exact card. Its the premium edition meaning it came with the remote and adapters along with HDTV component outs. its model AIWHD3650PM.

Apparently Im assuming I need to uninstall the GeForce card. Or reinstall windows to config this card correctly. Along with that Im running Vista Home, so No Windows Media Center. Should install a ultimate version of vista then?

Hi, I have the exact same computer specs as you do and I am running into the exact same problem as you. I was wondering if you have solved the problem yet and if so would you share your solution?

sorry man. There is no fix I've found heres the problem. Your running a nvida card as a primary source for graphics and display. Nvidia and ATI do NOT mix. You can def install the ATI but can not switch between the nvidia and ATI without uninstalling the primary card (nvidia) then installing the new (ati). Theres no solution I've found, maybe if you dual booted with 2 OS you could set one up with nvidia and one with ATI, but on the same OS there is no way to switch between them. I have since then gave up, using a USB for cable input now install which is poor quality but works for now. in the meantime I'll just sell the ATI. The ATI is meant to be a graphics card more than a input for cox/TV. Hope this helps.
