I need help with my Compro VideoMate T750. I'm having trouble removing/reinstalling drivers.
I have been using the S-Video input lately with my PS2 & things have been running fine (for several months) until recently, when all of a sudden my output started to display in black & white. As soon as I noticed this, I rebooted my PC, only to be prompted with a 'new hardware found' message. Windows recognized the device as a 'Videomate TV SAA7133/35 Hybrid Capture Device', I canceled the installation & proceeded to repair my drivers (V1357). This had no effect, so I removed the driver entirely, reinstalled, but still no change.
Through many combinations of trying to install the device through hardware update wizard & trying VMHybrid_1357.exe, I've come to the realization that when I use VMHybrid_1357.exe, it doesn't actually install the driver. I've noticed that upon rebooting, the hardware update wizard prompts me with 'new hardware found', even after trying to install the driver with VMHybrid_1357.exe. The install process takes all of 2 seconds to complete & there is no warning about the driver not being digitally signed. I'm not sure if the application isn't installing because all of the drivers haven't been removed entirely, or what's going on, but I'm currently unable to get my device working.
Strangely enough though, when I've installed the device through the hardware update wizard, I am able to get the device to register through ComproDTV 3, again, in black & white, but am able to record video, which would normally crash DTV 3 when the correct drivers work working.
Any help with this will be much appreciated, as if I can't sort this out, I'll be taking this card back & will hopefully upgrade to a card with better analog input quality, assuming there are cards that have a better signal.
