Re: Response from TechniSat regarding software update problems.

Alan Sewards <alan.sewards@...>

My computer has assigned IRQ 11 to the card, which it shares with the modem,
IEEE1394 card, PCI-USB controller, fast Ethernet, and audio driver. So far,
I have had no problems with the card, even though I have everything running
on a single PC.

Best regards - Alan

this problem is more or less depending on the used PC, the IRQ sharing

We always tell our B2B cutomer to assign a unique IRQ to the DVB

prevent any interferences.
Typical excuse for a badly written bit of software, if it can't IRQ
share it has no part calling itself suitable for XP !!!

If they think I'm going to try and mess with Windows XP and BIOS's to
possibly get an IRQ assigned they've another think coming! The only
other manufacturer which I've had problems with like this was with
Creative and one of their sound cards.

If they got it to work before - why not now?

Having said that I notice Windows XP has assigned an PCI IRQ of 10 to my
card which isn't being shared at that level with anything else. I wonder
what others have got?
