"Super Digital Video Dazzle Series, AKA, TVR PCI TV Tuner Card"

21 July 2014


Summary: No longer have this card. Driver is provided below.





Bought Super Digital Video Dazzle card off of eBay. $10USD and some shipping costs.

When it arrived, card appeared to be well made but no defined manufacturer on card itself or serial number or anything.

Came with Honestech driver and tuner application CD.

Platform for install was dual core, Intel motherboard running Windows XP professional with all Microsoft website updates.

Personal experiences:

Had trouble installing driver and tuner application software but eventually got installed.

Appeared to work but then personal computer began to freeze with reboot required to get XP going again.

Decided, perhaps, I needed a driver or tuner update, so Internet search on Honestech and found a website.

But, could not find any update defined for Super Dazzle board.

Well guess what, Honestech says their software probably bundled with some board and I needed to contact board manufacturer to get any software update. BUT, no idea who made this board so no where to go.

Oh, did try to run TV tuner software I found on various blogs or driver download sites but nothing worked.

SO, just pulled this card out of my system and junked it.

Really too bad as it appears to be a well made card but just does not work for me.

Finally, this card is still being sold on eBay at an attractive price.

NOTE: Turns out in the end, I had a motherboard problem and it was not the card causing problems
