Green Screen (New Install)

Hi All,

I Just bought the WinTV 500 bundle (dual tuner, Sage v6, remote) and installed it on my daughters computer;

XP Pro, 2500+ Athalon XP, 1gig ram, Geforce 6600

First, version 6 just gives me a bunch of colored lines when I run the program. So I installed version 5. It did the same as V6 (colored lines) untill I disabled 3d in (that didn't work in V6). However, when I am attempting to watch TV all I get is a green screen. Once the video popped up and I thoght it was going to work, but then it popped back to the green screen and has been there ever since.

I have installed the latest video drivers, directx 9.0c, and the newest WinTV drivers from their site. Still get a green screen.

I tried to install WinTV2000 to see if the cards work with that but when I try to run that I get a dll error (can't find hcwtvwnd.dll). Needless to say I am now completely bald.

I have Sage install at my house (Server, 2 clients, and a media extender) and it works flawlessly, perfectly, fantastic. So why am I having so many problems with this one?

Anyone else experiencing this type of problem? Any ideas how I can fix it?
