Wow I'm impressedOriginally Posted by saikanoi did a little ing, and believe it might e because windows installed your drivers??
check this out, from the Hauppauge website. NOTE that i assumed that u have xp. the idea behind this is that sometimes when windows update installs things, it makes them dependent. this is just telling you to uninstall all the drivers to clean up windows' mistakes, and instll it the way the manufacturer designed...this may or may not work, it's just an idea.
WinTV PVR PCI boards and Windows XP :
If Windows update installed the WDM drivers for the board, follow these steps:
First, click on Start and then RIGHT CLICK on MyComputer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager. You should see the WinTV listed here. If they are listed as Hauppauge WinTV 878/9 WDM driver, right click on each listing and Uninstall. Close Device Manager.
As a general rule during all WinTV installations on Windows XP systems, be sure that you are disconnected from any LAN/WAN, and that the WinTV CD rom disk is not in your CD drive when installing any of the software updates from our website.
Download and run the Hwclear utility and run this to remove the existing WinTV files from the system. Choose "total removal" and put a checkmark in the box for "Search all .INF files for conflicting Bt8xx hardware" and click OK.
Download and install the following files in this order:
WinTV Driver and reboot Windows
WinTV PVR PCI update and reboot Windows update and reboot Windows
WinTV Application software
The WinTV PVR will now be up and running on Windows XP.
The RADIO and IR REMOTE software may also be downloaded and installed.
