So I bought the Hauppauge Nova-S DVB-S PCI card, thinking that I was going for the high-priced spread and I would soon be in Freeview/SageTV heaven. But 'twas not to be. I'm having fits getting the tuner driver to install successfully under Windows XP SP2. I've removed my audio driver, updated my nVIDIA driver, gotten the latest versions of everything Hauppauge, removed the WinTV app, and generally tried everything I can think of, but the Device Manager still reports that Windows can't load the driver for the DVB-S Tuner/Demod (Code 39). I assume this is why WinTV doesn't recognise the device.

Anybody else have any bright ideas/experience with this? As it is, I'm stuck with an expensive piece of dead silicon.

Many Thanks, and Many More Thanks to anyone who can get me past this,

Steve Upstill

I have a problem where my Hauppauge HVR-2200 goes missing in action if I reboot my computer, however if I do a full shutdown, wait a couple of minutes then cold boot the HTPC the 2200 miraculously reappears, dunno why, it just does.
Are the drivers you are using from hauppauge.co.uk?

I've installed about 6 of these cards in various machines over the last couple of years and never had a problem.
The only thing that I have had to is after running the hauppauge driver install is check Device Manager to make sure everything got installed. There was usually one thing left that I had to update the driver on to get working. I just pointed it to the folder of the hauppauge driver I downloaded and it installed ok.
