Hey there,

Just wondering if anybody has a Hauppauge PCI/PCIe card working successfully in Windows 8 Pro 32bit?

I have switched over from W7 to W8, but find I now have no remote control function.

I have been using Hauppauge TV tuners for 3 years and am quite familiar with them, but no matter what I do, can't get any response from the remote.

Have .Net 3.5 installed with all features enabled. Makes no difference.

Installed with WinTV 7.2 version. Hauppauge should have all the Windows 8 issues sorted by now; obviously not.

All the other features of my Hauppauge cards work correctly, except the remote control.

Any ideas?

I have a hauppauge HVR-2200 and Windows 8 and my IR remote works fine. I don't have and never have had any version of Win-TV installed, even before on Windows 7.

I'm not at home at the moment to check properly, my remote is a Microsoft type remote but it's not a 'Microsoft Remote.' I vaguely remember having to manually install either an ehome driver or similar to get it to work. I can't remember specifically where I got it from, but can check tonight.

When on the desktop pressing the green button once doesn't launch Windows Media Center like it used to, but a double-press of the green button does. I've since stopped using WMC and use NextPVR now anyway.

I should have expressed myself more clearly; it is the Hauppauge Remote and its IR receiver (that plugs into a Hauppauge PCI card) that is not working.

Hauppauge supplies software that supports this remote, either in the WinTV installation, or as a separate program, IR32.exe.

It seems that this software does not function correctly under Windows 8.

I may have to do what you are doing and use a MCE remote, but I'd like to stick with the Hauppauge remote if I can, as I have two of them.

I found the solution. I removed the HVR-3000 from the PC where it was accompanied by the Nova-S-Plus, and installed it in a second w8 32bit system that had no other tuners installed, and it worked perfectly; normal IR function. It seems that the HVR3000 does not work properly in W8 if a second Hauppauge tuner is installed (it might just be the Nova-S-Plus or it could be any other Hauppauge tuner: to work that out more testing would be required).

To get IR function with both tuners installed on the same W8 system I had to edit the following registry key:


I went into 'Control Panel/ Device Manager/ Sound Video & Game Controllers' and copied the name of the Nova-S-Plus, 'Hauppauge WinTV 88x Video Capture (DVB-S+IR)', and put this name in the VCapFilter, and it worked.

Hope this might assist anybody else out there with two or more Hauppauge tuners on W8 with no functioning remote control.
