Hardware :: How To Make Elgato Eyetv Hybrid Work On Windows XP/Vista/7 - 32bit Or 64bit

Jan 26, 2009

I know a lot of us have the Elgato Eyetv Hybrid and would love to use it on our Macs in conjunction with Bootcamp & Windows. Well I finally figured out how to do it! All I had to do is slightly modify some Windows drivers.

The hardware being used is very similar to the Hauppauge USB Sticks.

Elgato made 2 versions of the hybrid; the older version without QAM and the newer version with QAM. (It has been brought to my attention they also have a new version out with radio capabilities).

I have only been able to test this on the hybrid WITH QAM.

I was able to slightly modify the Hauppauge drivers which allowed the Elgato Eyetv Hybrid to work under windows using both the Windows Media Center and the standalone player by Hauppauge.

So here is what you need to do:

Go to Device Manager

Vista users: Right click on Computer > Click Properties > Click Device Manager

Now you should see some devices under "Other devices" with a yellow question mark next to them. Both should be called "EyeTV Hybrid" There are two because the USB stick has both a digital and analog tuner.

Right click on either device > Click Properties > Click Details tab > Where it says Property, scroll down to Hardware IDs

If the bold numbers match, these drivers will work for you. (If they don't match please provide me with your numbers so I can try and make drivers that will work for you.)
USBVID_0FD9&PID_0008&REV_0005&MI_03

Now we can close the EyeTV Hybrid Properties windows which brings us back to Device Manager.

Download both the modified drivers (an attachment below) and the manufacturer software here:

Unzip and open the manufacturer software, navigate to the Drivers folder, and replace: HCWemBda.inf and HCWemBda64.inf with the modified drives you downloaded from me. (You also have to unzip and open the folder you downloaded from me).

Now go back to your Device Manager window, Right click on one of the EyeTV Hybrid devices with the yellow question mark next to it and click Update Driver Software...

Click Browse my computer for driver software > Click browse and navigate to the drivers folder from the manufacturer's software > Click Ok.

Do the same for the other device in Device Manager.

Now go to the manufacturer's software you downloaded earlier and double click Setup.

Finish the install and you should be Done

Windows On Mac :: Windows Vista - 32bit Or 64bit?

Apr 27, 2009

I'd appreciate it if anyone could offer me some advice on whether to go with the 32bit or 64bit version of Vista on a 4-core 'Nehalem' Mac Pro. I've read that some drivers will fail to work under this version of the operating system - is this the case for the hardware in the Mac Pro (particularly the HD 4870)?

Mac Pro :: Install Vista 32bit Or 64bit For Gaming?

Feb 15, 2008

Im about to recieve my MPro w/8800, and plan to have a dedicated HD for Windows in bootcamp. Windows will be used exclusively for gaming (real-time-strategy games mostly, if this matters).

I am keen on going into Vista, trading a bit of XP performance/stability towards full/hassel-free compatibility with Directx10 and future games, but have no clue whether it makes sense or not to go with the 64 bit version.

I understand this version allows to use much more RAM (which i will have installed on the MPro), AND more than a single core used.

What i dont have a clue about is wether the 64bit version is compatible with all (or grand majority) of games, whether they do actually take advantages of the 64 bit possibility (which im not sure at all, as i believe you have to program it to do so), etc.

Windows On Mac :: Best Way To Go From 32bit XP - 64bit 7?

Oct 11, 2009

My Windows XP partition is getting claustrophobic and it's about time I upgraded from an 8 year old OS.

Anyway, what's the easiest way to do this? I assume it'll have to be a clean install to go from XP to 7 and 32bit to 64bit.

I have a fair number of programs and several gigabytes of Steam games which is why I haven't done it yet.

Applications :: Vmware + Windows (32bit Vs. 64bit)?

Nov 11, 2009

I'm not sure which forum this belongs in, but given that its really a vmware question, I'm thinking that applications is the best fit.

Anyways, if I decide to take the plunge and get windows 7, it will be for the express purpose of running within vmware. I have zero interest in running it in bootcamp (I use fedora and boot into that) so basically which version of win7 would provide the best performance. The 32bit or 64bit flavor

i have a Mac Pro 1,1 (2007) running 10.6.2 with Boot Camp 3.0.1 and i want to install some version of Windows 64 bit via Boot Camp so i can utilize all of my RAM for playing PC games.

I've already done a bit of research on this, but i cannot get a clear consensus on which ones will work (if any).

Does anyone know of any versions of 64 bit Windows that i can use to successfully install on my Mac Pro 1,1 with boot camp?

Windows On Mac :: Gaming On Windows 7 32bit Or 64bit?

May 17, 2009

I currently have 268GB on my hardrive.

I have the 17" MBP Unibody so I want to start gaming again, and I have thought about Xp, Vista, and 7 and I have decided on windows 7 because its free and allows for DirectX10.

1.
Now I am trying to conserve hard drive space but should i get the 16GB 32bit or the 20GB 64bit version of windows 7 and how much space should i allocate for the partition?

2.
Games i will be playing:
Counter Strike: Source
Call of Duty: WaW
Maybe Battlefield 2

3.
I plan on getting some newer games since I don't have my crappy computer anymore.
Any suggestions??

Windows On Mac :: Windows 32bit Or 64bit For Gaming On A Mac Pro?

Oct 5, 2009

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

I have an 8-core 3.2GHz 2008 Mac Pro with 16GB RAM. I've just ordered the EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 graphics card and am hoping to turn my beloved mac into a bit of a sexy PC gaming beast for some evening fun. Already purchased Batman Arkham Asylum, Gears of War and an Xbox 360 controller to get me started

I'll cut to the chase. Microsoft are offering a free upgrade to Windows 7 if you buy Vista at the moment so that's not the issue. The issue is 32bit or 64bit for a gaming box - which is the best version to get for performance and compatibility with gaming on windows?

I'm looking to purchase either the 32bit or 64bit version of Vista (with the free upgrade to the corresponding Windows 7 version).

Which is the best to get? 32bit or 64bit? I've been reading that some games don't work well with 64bit Windows. Lots of conflicting articles and comments.

32bit or 64bit Windows... what's the best for a bootcamp gaming rig?

Windows On Mac :: Games Crashing In Vista 32bit?

Mar 6, 2009

Recenly got myself a Macbook Pro and installed Vista 32bit on it. Runs great (although the fans start blowing quickly and hard in Vista compared to OsX) but I do have one problem: when I play games (HL2, Fallout3...) the games tend to crash after a few minutes (the application itself, not the laptop)

I tried installing (modded) drivers, updating all I can update but the problem remains. Only thing I have not tried is re-installing Windows, but not sure if that would even solve my problem.

Temperatures measured with HWMonitor seemed pretty normal to me (cpu max 62�C, gpu around 82�C).

Windows On Mac :: Sound In Windows Vista (64bit) Not Working Right Under BootCamp 3.0?

Sep 24, 2009

Last night I installed Windows Vista to run a game on here, but I got several issues. I already installed the drivers from the Snow Leopard DVD, but the problems still persist.

The issues are:

1. Sound is very very low and uneven. I have the volume all the way maxed, but the loudest it can go is less than half than the potential volume in Snow Leopard.

2. Headphones don't work. I've tried like 3 pairs of headphones and none of them work. When I plug them in, the sound still comes from the left speaker (I can barely hear the right speaker) on the laptop and not on the headphones. Also, the headphone jack is emitting a red light out of it.

3. The lights on the keyboard won't shut off. I used the F5 key to turn off the keyboard backlighting, and while it goes very dim they won't shut off.


I already tried the suggestions on this thread but none of those fixes work. I need help! Especially with the sound! Anything at all would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running a MacBook Pro 13" from June 2009, 2.26GHz Intel, 4GB of RAM, and an Nvidia GeForce 9400M. I instlled a 64bit version of Windows Vista (OEM).

Windows On Mac :: Vista 64bit For Games But What If The Games Are Not 64bit?

Mar 7, 2009

I was told to run Vista 64bit for games, but I was wondering about this� Since many applications don�t even have a 64bit version out and I don�t think games are 64bit, will they all run under vista 64bit? I have a feeling this might be a dumb question, but I just wanted to make sure before I go out and buy Vista 64.

Also do you think windows 7 is better for games? Will it even run games that have not been written for it? Or would I just be better sticking with vista 64 until everyone has caught up and made their apps compatible with the new windows 7? I mean will antivirus programs, ripping apps, etc work under windows 7 without a hitch, or should I wait and just use vista64 for now?

MacBook Pro :: 64bit Vs 32bit?

Apr 16, 2010

How's it going everyone, I'm fairly new to Mac and I'm not very technical at all. I just purchased an i7 15" and I'm confused when it comes to 64bit vs 32bit. Does the computer automatically switch between the two or is there something you have to specifically do to run one or the other? For instance, I downloaded Handbrake last night, it asked if I wanted 64bit or 32bit? I have no clue? I bought a powerful machine, I want to make sure I utilize it.

OS X :: Moving From 32bit To 64bit Mac Using Time Machine

Aug 20, 2010

I've recently bought a new iMac and would like to migrate my stuff from my early 2006 iMac (first intel mac, 32 bit). There are several ways of doing this, but I'd like to achieve:
1) Identical copy
2) Defragmented drive (previously it was getting very slow)

As I know from using Windows, you cannot simply create an image from one PC and move to another, because of differences in the kernel. The new PC may never boot. I am moving from 32bit to 64bit, so that would be quite a change. Also, should I use the migration assistant, or boot from recovery disc and recover from my time machine backup? Will the latter not result in a more identical system? And, is that desirable? My old iMac has all updates installed, so it should be the same as the new system.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Kernel Appears 32bit And Processor Is 64bit On Mac Pro?

May 11, 2012

It appears that for whatever reason, the kernel on my Mac is 32bit/i386, but the architecture is 64bit:
Darwin system.local 11.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.3.0: Thu Jan 12 18:48:32 PST 2012; root:xnu-1699.24.23~1/RELEASE_I386 i386

Though the kernel itself is a universal binary:
mach_kernel: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures
mach_kernel (for architecture x86_64):Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
mach_kernel (for architecture i386):Mach-O executable i386

OS X :: Snow Leopard 32bit Versus 64bit Kernel - How To Boot It / Finding Supported Hardware

Aug 27, 2009

So, with Snow Leopard, there is a 32-bit kernel, and a 64-bit kernel. Correct?

As I understand it, it will boot into the 32-bit kernel by default, but if your hardware is supported, you can select the 64-bit kernel.

My question is - where is the list of supported hardware, and how do you select the 64-bit kernel?

My confusion comes from several posts and various articles which all say the first-gen aluminium iMac has a 32-bit EFI, and therefore can only boot into the 32-bit kernel. But I've just downloaded an app called Startup Mode Selector, which shows you your system config, and it says I have a 64-bit EFI.

MacBook Pro :: Snow Leopard Has A 32bit Kernel As The Default Like 64bit Kernel?

Aug 13, 2009

Yes you read that right. Your brand spanking new MBP will use a 32-bit kernel as default.

You can force 64-bit kernel but some of your hardware will not be working.

So all that marketing crap about the benefits of 64-bit etc are all B.S.

I don't want a million threads about how this will not effect the running of 64 bit apps, etc. because it will. Your 64-bit app will run but it will not be able to address more than 4Gb of RAM.

There are also many more advantages to having a 64-bit kernel.

Mac Pro :: Bootcamp With Vista 64bit - No Switch Application

Aug 3, 2009

I have Mac OS X on my SSD and Windows Vista X64 on a seperate drive.

I used Bootcamp to prepare the drive as a single partition for Windows.

All fine and working so far.

However, after installing the Bootcamp tools from my Mac OS X 10.5 DVD I don't get anything in the Start Menu apart from the Apple Update program.

There are several services including the Switch application that is running, but that's it.

As a result my Early-2008 Mac Pro will only boot from the Windows drive, unless I use the Option/Alt key to select the Mac OS X drive.

Anyone got a clue what I might be missing here? I already did the re-install/replace option on the Bootcamp tools. No effect.

Windows On Mac :: Windows 7 64bit - Unibody MPB 15" - Media Key Invisible

Apr 24, 2009

Here's a new one for me. My 3 media keys don't work for any applications such as Windows Media Player, iTunes, Open Pandora. Everything else works though?!? I reinstalled the keyboard driver and there has been no change. It's like those keys are disabled. Pressing fn will let them use their typical F function, so they work, it's just being blocked by the BootCamp manager or something.

Something else - they keys are invisible to the OS. I can't use a 3rd party hotkey manager to just reassign them.

Windows On Mac :: Does Windows 7 Require Snow Leopard To Be Booted 64bit?

Nov 20, 2009

I'm new to using Windows on a Mac but need to do it now for some video rendering applications that have transcoding, filtering, effects (like VirtualDub) that are only available on a PC.

I have a 17"MBP (3 months old), 2.8Ghz Duo, 4Gb RAM. I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard, was excited about 64-bit though I'm not an expert, I just heard it would be faster.

I didn't realize SL doesn't boot 64-bit anyhow, that you need to hold "6" & "4" at startup to get it to boot in 64bit mode. This surprised me because I figure many people assumed SL was 64bit! Just getting it to boot properly was a hassle. The 6 & 4 trick didn't work for me.

I had to edit the preference file which wouldn't save at first either because of permissions (I had to drag it to my desktop, edit it, save it, then drag it back to the folder and enter in my administrator password).

Only then did I realize my brand new eSATA Express Card didn't work in 64-bit mode. Upsetting because I just bought the hot new Sonnet Tempo card for $200 that claims to work with Snow Leopard. So until it works I'll be running 32bit mode on my Mac.

But if I want to run Windows 7, does this mean I can only run the 32bit version?

Windows On Mac :: Cannot Install Drivers (XP Pro 32bit)

Oct 2, 2009

I've successfully installed windows professional 32bit onto my mac computer with bootcamp. When I insert my OS10.5 Leopard cd's into the computer windows will not detect the CD's. These are original CD's after trying to get it to work for a few mins I came up with an idea. I downloaded the 2.1 mac drivers from apple @ [URL]. I then burned the drivers onto a cd and then rebooted into windows. After copying the drivers from the cd to my harddrive, I tried to install the drivers that I had downloaded but nothing happens. I can see in the taskmanager that the BCUpdateXP.exe runs for a few seconds then does nothing. The mac is an iMac 8.1, intel core 2 duo, 2.66ghz, 2gb ram. The leopard cd's work when running the mac under Mac OSx 10.5.8 which would mean the cd's should be fine.
