EN Troubleshooting
Q: System could not find device.
A: Connect TV BOX directly to USB 2.0 port, problems
may occur when you connect via USB hub. Try connecting device to another USB port, or use another
usb cable. When connection is good the red led is
on (looking at upper side of TV BOX).
Q: Unable to run honestech TVR, only message „Could
not initialize capture device” appear.
A: Error could cause other video capture devices that
were installed before TV BOX. Uninstall TV BOX and
all devices such internet camera, scanner, graphic
card with “video-in” feature. Restart system and proceed steps 3-5 of device installation. Check operating of honestech TVR application, if error does not
exist you can install other video capture devices.
Q: Video quality is very low.
A: Poor TV antenna signal may cause the problem,
check how it works with normal TV set.
If antenna signal is good, check operating when you
input signal from DVD or digital camera. If captured
video is not good, check your system configuration.
Check if you have installed latest driver for graphic
card.
