Winfast PVR2000 problem

Hello guys! I have a problem with my tv card, i hope you can help me or something because im out of ideas. It goes like this, recently i installed Windows Vista on 64bit version, when i wanted to install the Winfast driver for my tv card, i fiind out that theres no driver for X64 Windows Vista version...  I tryed some "experiments" with other drivers but no luck .... Currently Leadtek dosent have a released driver for X64 Vista version, i even sended them a email but the never replyed .

Re: Winfast PVR2000 problem

Talking about PVR2000, I have another question:

In latest PVR 2 was released EVR mode. Should this mode improve quality on PVR2000 cards when using Vista? I see no difference...
I was said that on other hardware encoders it makes a difference using this particular option (crawl text in the bottom of the image looks much sharper!).
That means that Leadtek doesn't support anymore old cards but only newer cards?

Re: Winfast PVR2000 problem

Fisrt,
In the Vista, the different between VMR and EVR is not visible.
In the Windows 7, you can see the different easily.

Second,
the EVR must be using if you want to enable the DVB-T H.264 DXVA2 (GPU's H.264 hardware accelaration) in the Vista and Windows 7.
The CPU usage will be very low if the GPU's H.264 hardware accelaration is using.
Not all GPUs have the H.264 hardware accelaration.
For the NVIDIA's GPUs, you can refer to the following NVIDIA's documents:

Re: Winfast PVR2000 problem

EVR is not fully optimised in PVR2, compare to SageTV, KMplayer, etc.
INFO news that appear on CNN, BBC are ok in EVR compare to VMR9, but still need optimised.

One other thing, in image posted by STYK,  VMR , you see that squares right?
Well, that squares does not appear in VMR, but appear in VMR9, and sometimes does not appear at all if videodriver is good( i mean Nvidia driver).

Latest nvidia drivers are ok, no squares in VMR or VMR9.

MY EVR MODE on PxPVR2200( win7 32, latest drivers and beta pvr2)
