Addendum to Net-TV 98 Manual

INTRODUCTION

There are two ways to install the Net-TV 98 card:

  1. You can install the Net-TV 98 card with the AITech Net-TV 98 software from the CD. This will allow you to watch TV on your computer, as well as do video capture and video conferencing.
  2. You can install the Net-TV 98 card with the Microsoft WebTV drivers from the CD. This will allow you to get the special WebTV transmissions, TV log listings and other features from Microsoft.

WebTV NOTES:

WebTV is a Microsoft product. WebTV relies on a WDM driver written by Microsoft for Windows 98. The WDM driver may not be fully functional in your system depending on the version of Windows 98 you have installed.

The Microsoft WDM driver is dependent on video cards that support the overlay method of operation. If your video card does not support overlay, WebTV may not work on your system.

WebTV is currently produced and operational ONLY in the United States - it will not work in other countries.

Recommendation

These two methods of installation (1 and 2 above) cannot be installed in your Windows 98 system at the same time. If one is installed the other must be removed.

It is recommended that you choose a single method using your AITech Net-TV 98 card and install it for that purpose.


The following instructions pertain to installing and uninstalling the Net-TV 98 and the WebTV software in Windows 98.  Please note that these two programs are mutually exclusive and cannot be installed on the computer in Windows 98 at the same time.  Make sure that you have your Windows 98 CD handy when performing any of the operations listed below.

If you are installing the Net-TV 98 software from the CD you must first uninstall WebTV.

If you have WebTV installed on your system and want to install Net-TV 98 you must first uninstall Web-TV.

The CD Browser program that runs automatically when you insert the CD will check to see if you have WebTV installed when you try to install Net-TV 98.  If it finds WebTV installed the program will tell you to uninstall WebTV.  It will also check for the opposite condition when trying to install WebTV and tell you to uninstall Net-TV 98 before installing WebTV.


INSTALLING Net-TV 98

Before you install Net-TV 98 you must first uninstall the Windows 98 portion of WebTV. You must also uninstall the WebTV drivers if you have installed them from the AITech installation CD.
