What is a Video/TV Tuner Driver?
A video or TV Tuner driver allows a computer to receive television signals and also contains
video capture capabilities for recording programs onto the hard disk. Internet TV, Broadcast
TV, live shows and movies can all be seen and/or captured.
Video and TV tuners can be internal or external and some video cards can even double as
tuners. Tuners can be analog, hybrid, combo or mobile and each type requires a driver to
demodulate the signal and provide a logic interface to allow the signal to be viewed on the
user’s computer screen. Drivers for video and TV tuners are both card and operating system
specific. Each card requires a specific driver for achieving full functionality. In
addition, different operating systems will also require specific Video and TV Tuner drivers;
older systems may not support this feature at all.
What can go wrong with my Video and TV Tuning Drivers?
Video and TV tuner drivers have changed rapidly in the years since they were made available.
Also, more and more cable channels are broadcasting in digital only so older, analog tuners
and drivers may not work and may require replacement. There are some other video and TV
tuner issues below that may come into play on your system:
- The video/TV tuner driver has become outdated resulting in conflicts with hardware
devices or software programs.
- The user has installed an update to their operating system (especially Windows 7 and
forward), which results in an obsolete driver that cannot demodulate the television
signal or loses pieces of data during the demodulation process.
- The video/TV tuner driver has been corrupted or is missing functionality after a viral
attack on the system, a breach of system security or a system crash.
