February 25, 2009 // 9:40 pm - The PlayTV use the DiBcom 7070P chipset and an USB interface but Windows don't recognize it, but you can force some Pinnacle Driver to work, you need only to modify the PCTVDIB.INF inside the Archive.

Download: Sony PlayTV (Win32) Driver

The best is to use the driver linked here (Pinnacle 32bit).

• And overwrite the original PCTVDIB.INF inside the Archive.
• Plug the PlayTV and load the Driver.
• Work in Windows Media Center, and in other generic software.

Sony PlayTV (Win32) Driver Now Available!

Looking back through the comments, I saw several people asking about which program to use with PlayTV on Windows XP. I had trouble finding a program that works.

I eventually found that MediaPortal works with PlayTV. I hope this helps someone.

while adding the drivers it tells me that it is not compatible with 64 bit, that's cause i think the driver is for 32 bit. thanks

Hi All,

Noob here. What do i have to do when i have the driver?? How do i overwrite the file??

Cheers

Edit: Got it sorted. Works well. Nice to be able to use it on the PC. Not sure how much I will use it but a great cheat! thanks.

I guess i could plug the Play TV into the laptop when i leave in the morning and Team Viewer into it from work and watch telly!!

Use this link: http://www.pctvsystems.com/tabid/62/default.aspx/Downloads/Driver/tabid/123/language/en-US/Default.aspx and download the driver for PCTV Dual DVB-T Diversity Stick (2001e) then replace dib file works for me.

Anyone know if there is an alternate driver to the pinacle one that works? Am trying to stream live tv on my network with dvb TVsource but the program won't tune in any channels.

has any one got this going with Windows 7 64-bit? I downloaded the 64bit driver files from pinnacle by changing the URL and overwrote PCTVDiB64.inf with the supplied PCTVDiB.inf

32-bit doesn't work either..

i've installed this and media center isn't picking the playtv up as a device, i'm using windows xp media center edition, if anyone can recommend another program i would be more than happy to use that.

It means when you extract the files from both archives to your desktop, copy and paste the new single .inf file over the old and click 'Yes' to the prompt to overwrite them.
