Chris TV Application Shows Error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I have a problem with the Chris TV app. I downloaded it from CNET so that I can watch TV from my PC and now when I run it an application error occurs. On clicking yes nothing happens and on clicking no the program quits. Any suggestions?

Error message:

The operation cannot be performed because the pins are not connected ($80040209).

Do you want to continue running Chris TV?

The error occurred because of filter interruption in Chris TV, as they are not connected well. Follow the following steps:

1. In case you are using Chris TV as a Video card with Video input or with both Graphic card and TV Card. Set Program Settings > Video Rendering and then

A. Uncheck the “Use Overlay Mixer” box,

B. Check “Use Video Mixing Renderer(VMR-9)” feature box, and

C. Check “Use Advanced Rendering Mode” box.  

2. Ensure that you have installed DirectX 9 or higher.

3. Keep the Video Rendering Mode to either “Overlay”, “VMR-9” or “Normal”.

Finally Restart Chris TV. This would fix your problem.
