I have had x10 cameras half of them not even opened from a kit I purchased a while back. Went to try and get them running again and found out they sold and the software wasnt supported anymore, and as we know its not a loss the vanguard was horrible and it used about 80% of my processor all the time. I need to set up about 6 cameras , i have the cameras a CM19A USB module, VR36A (for composite) and a tilt and pan base which worked great last time i used it with a modification to the CM19A antenna. I need to start from the beginning, I cant get around windows 7 64 not letting me install the correct drivers for the CM19A, it keeps telling me the firecracker drivers it loads are better. Ive tried renaming the drivers i need to the ones it uses and it still wont work. Any help is much appreciated.

You need to disable Windows updates for USB devices.
I don't remember the exact way of doing that but a Google search should locate it for you.
I also know the info in in this forum I believe it might be in a thread on using a USB modem.
What video adaptor are you using?

The cm19 only does the switching of cameras and controls the Pan & tilt. The video signal is different and requires a VR36A or simular device which then sends out your video and sound via RCA cable to a video capture card.
Most users used a VA12A or VA13 the VA11A will not work with a newer Windows PC then XP
