I'm using a Hauppauge HVR2200 OEM Dual digital Tuner card with Windows Media Center on Windows 7 to record analogue TV from my apartment building and display on my TV and projector.

I have one problem though; my TV only accepts RCA connections so I added a NVIDIA GeForce 6200 PCI Video Card which has s-video (+ s-video to RCA adapter) to my Intel DH67BL motherboard.

The problem is that after Windows Update installs the GeForce 6200 driver:
- Flash Player wont load in Chome (and repeatedly crashes)
- General graphics performance is poor (desktop lags)
- Windows Media Center works ok

If I install the NVIDIA drivers manually:
- Flash Player still wont load in Chrome
- The NVIDIA control panel freezes
- General graphics performance is poor
- Windows Media Center works ok

If I uninstall the drivers by going to Device Manager > NVIDIA Geforce 6200 > Uninstall (Driver)
- Flash Player works in Chrome
- General graphics performance is good
- Windows Media Center does not work as no graphics card is detected

Anyone know what's going on?
Could it have something to do with the graphics card being a PCI card and having the main PCIe x16 slot empty (usual graphics card slot?). I've also tried disabling the on-board graphics in the BIOS.

I'm running;
- Intel DH67BL Motherboard
- Intel Core i7-2600 CPU
- 16GB RAM
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, clean install on 64GB Crucial SSD

THe 6200 is a very low spec card and doesn't supprt H.264 acceleration. It probably chokes when it encounters Flash H.264 content.

Ive had various issues with the 6xxx series of cards on Win7, found it easier to pickup a cheap 8xxx series or better card.
