Saa7146a driver difficult to install under Win7 64 bits

Hi everyone

I have just received my TT S2-1600 PCI card and am I having trouble getting TUTIOUNE to run correctly. Has anyone had any experience using this card with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OS?

Computer configuration:

Intel Core i3 4130 3.4Ghz Dual Core
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with SP1
TT-budget S2-1600 pci card

I am logged in as Administrator and have followed the instructions regarding running the setup procedures as admin.

When I run Tutioune1600v0_3a I get the following error message:
"could not use the Video Mixing Renderer"

The program eventually appears on the screen with a blank central video window and many error windows appearing indicating :

"incorrect floating point operation" (if my French translation is correct)

It seems that the driver is not finding the S2-1600 card as the results of running VerifmatosV3_0 gives the following output:

Version de Windows utilisée:
Windows 7 Home Premium Edition, 64-bit, Service Pack 1 (Build 7601)
Détection des cartes PCI
->No SAA7146A driver and/or card detected.

Is there an issue with using Windows 7 OS?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Tutioune can work under Win7 64 bits

Several OM use Tutioune under Win7 64 bits. There are solutions.

Problem is the difficulty to install the Saa7146a driver
Win7 is sometimes hard to accept software/driver not "Microsoft validated" with no official "digital signature".

I have no PC with Win7 64 bits for the moment ( only several PC under Win7 32 bits and Win XP - double boot).
I will install one Win7 64 bits and Win8 64 bits ASAP to test and find the easiest solution for the driver installation.

One solution is describe here :

I have also translate VerifMatos in English : CheckMatos V3.0 and I am preparing a new software to check also if you have all codecs/ Directshow filters installed.

You need to test first with "VerifMatos"/"CheckMatos" to get all leds Green before running Tutioune.

it's done!
Tutioune1600 is running very well under WIN7 64 bits.
The principal difficulty is to make Win7 accept a driver without Microsoft certification.
