If your evaluation board is an ADV7180 & ADV7179 board with a USB connector, the PC software package is available to download from our Encoder FTP page. The directions in how to access the page are attached here - you can download the software from the ADV7179 folder.
Thanks for your kind reply.
My evaluation board is an ADV7180 & ADV7179 board with a USB.
I have visited the FTP page and downloaded the folder named ADV7174_79.
After installing the software, I found out the software on the FTP is same as that in ADV7174/79 Evaluation Kit CD, and computer still can not recognize the USB.
Thanks for your reply again.
Can you let me know the details of the computer and OS that you are running the software on?
Also, can you let me know what happens when you plug in the cable - does the OS detect something has been plugged into the USB? Do you get the normal USB connection audio alert if using Windows? Does the device appear under the Human Interface Devices listing on the Device Manager tab?
Thanks for the kind reply.
The OS of my PC is Windows XP, I'd like to known what information about my PC I should list?
When I plug in the USB to PC, the USB is detected and I hear audio alert.
However, the USB device is not recognized(unidentified) by PC and not showed under the Human Interface Devices Listing.
I tried to install USB driver under device wizard, but PC does not find driver in Evaluation Kit CD.
I also tried to work on other PC with XP OS, getting the same result.
I'll try to get you something back early next week.
Apologies for the delay,
Tanks for your kind help.
Thanks for kind help.
I've put together a zip file of files for you.
Please unzip the files in the folder and then add them to the c:windowszsystem32 folder on your computer.
Then run the install.bat file.
This should cause a dos popup window which deregisters and reregisters the files.
Can you then restart your machine, power up the board and then connect the USB cable.
Let me know how you get on,
Thanks for your kind help.
I have done the procedure, but PC still can not recognize the device.
When you ran the batch file, did the popup appear?
What did the popup say?
How are you checking if the PC has recognised the device?
Sorry for late reply.(out of lab)
Yes, there is a popup.
I did not remember the exact information in popup,
but it was about "a file with same name exist".
I just kept running the install procedure.
If a device has been installed successfully, I can find it in "installed devices list".
When I plug in the USB connector of the evaluation board, there is a USB mark.
Click the mark, I can see all USB ports and this device named "unrecognized device"
It is not so critical about this problem, because I have got another evaluation board for ADV7391.
(without USB connector, use I2C to set registers)
Thanks a lot, Joe.
