The TV Walker Hybrid Lite is a type of computer component which allows the host machine to receive television broadcast signals. These types of hardware components extend the functionality of the host computer system which in this case transforms it into an entertainment system. The device driver is responsible for activating the tuner functionality by decoding the signals that are transmitted to its input port. These types of multimedia expansion cards are capable of receiving signals from regular television broadcasts and cable television signals. These types of hardware components work in conjunction with the display and audio subsystem of the host computer system at run time. In this context the device driver for the TV Walker Hybrid Lite communicates with the device driver of the graphics card allowing for the proper rendering of the video and audio streams to the computer user.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
In most instances TV tuner cards like the TV Walker Hybrid Lite also deliver video capture functionality to the host computer system. This means that the hardware component and its corresponding device driver allows the computer user to record television broadcast signals and store them in the hard drive. What this translates to is that the analog signals can be converted into their digital counterpart with the use of various video algorithms. These stored media files can then be accessed using video editing programs and subjected to post processing effects if necessary. This routine is made possible in part by the device driver of the TV Walker Hybrid Lite which activates the video capture feature. The device driver also communicates with the necessary hardware components to make it possible to store the recorded data into the hard drive. Normally these types of video capture cards make use of the AVI video format for recording. The necessary codec is required to playback the stored television broadcast. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and TV Walker Hybrid Lite errors before installing any driver updates.
