Ok, so after getting pissed off with no TV1 or Sport, and then TV2 dropping off, I decided to uninstall the Tuner card and reinstall it. Uninstalled, did a driver clean out and switched the PC off. While it was off took the opportunity to shift the Tuner card down one PCI slot to give my fanless GPU some breathing space.
Fired it up, and hey, windows found new hardware. Put the install disc in and went thru the new hardware wizard. However, after a search, and a forced "search this directory" I get told no appropriate drivers. So I quit and went into the install setup on the Hauppauge disc. And I get "drivers install stopped. No compatable hardware found". So I downloaded the latest from Hauppauge, and still get the same messages. I have tried to manually select the drivers and all I get is a "this device is not configured correctly" message.
What's going on? I have even tried a system restore to the day I first fired it up and still no luck. I don't understand what is going on, I have never come up with this before.
Is it possible my card is faulty?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Regards
Dan

For a start move it either back to the slot it was in or another. Cards can have issues running in particular slots and will have just the problem you describe.

If I remember correctly, there were some threads over at GBPVR (www.gbpvr.com) regarding the NOVA S cards. It might be worthwhile paying them a visit.

Cheers Mike

Perhaps you need to tell your BIOS to "reset configuration data" for PCI ports, or set to to "Plug & Play OS"?  Failing that, try resetting BIOS to defaults

Tried this to no avail, so reinstalled the card in the original slot, and hey presto, all works again. Even get all the channels again. No idea why this happened, anyone else hazard a guess? Seems strange it will only work in one slot, but, hey, at least it works.
Thanks again for all your suggestions

is the other PCI slot different?  Perhaps its a 64bit only slot instead of 32bit slot?

It will not be anything to do with the slot being different ie. 64bit. It is something to do with the addressing that each slot uses I think but the upshot is that moving the card around fixes it. The downside is that as far as I know there is no way to overcome it. A different PCI card will most likely work quite happily in that slot just not that card.

You're right Nety, my Wireless network card works in both pci slots, (microATX board) but the tuner card will only work in the one closest to the PCIE slot. Weird, but hey, as long as it works, right?

Asus P5B-VM Mobo and Asus wireless adapter (and Asus EN7600GS Silent GPU). Figured that If I kept as much as I could in the same brand I SHOULD (but not necessarily) have less conflict issues.

from the manual:

When using PCI cards on shared slots, ensure that the drivers support “Share

IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments. Otherwise, conflicts will

arise between the two PCI groups, making the system unstable and the card

inoperable.



Looks like PCI1 shares with PCIEX_16_1, PCIEX4_1, SATA, IDE and a couple of USB's
PCI2 shares only with onboard LAN

which slot is your card working in?
