Hi, you can download the driver for the HVR-1600 from HERE
Step 1 - Extract the Installer
Download the file to a suitable location on your computer, then extract it . Windows has built in support for zip files, if you right click on the file and select 'extract all' a wizard will guide you through extracting the directory.
Step 2 - Remove the previous software version (if necessary)
If you had previously installed the WinTV-PVR-1600 in your PC, browse to the folder you just extracted to (e.g. through My Computer) and locate a file called hcwclear.exe
and choose the options Remove All WinTV Drivers and Applications (Total Removal)
and Search All .INF Files for Conflicting Hardware
Note: wait until the black box has disappeared of its own accord before proceeding.
Step 3 - Reboot
Shutdown and reboot your PC.
Once rebooted, please do not cancel any 'Found new hardware' wizards. Also ensure that the original driver CD is NOT in the CD drive.

prompts. For each one, please choose the following options:
4A) On the first page, select 'No, not this time
' and click Next
4B) On the next page, select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)
' and click Next
4C) On the next page you will be asked 'Please choose your search and installation options
'. Select 'Search for driver in these locations
' and then specify the extracted folder (the folder you extracted in step 1). Note:
Specifiy the 'Driver' subdirectory if Windows cannot find the driver file.Note:
You can also click the Browse
button and browse for the directlry created in Step 1.
4D) Keep clicking Next
for the rest of the steps then Finish
to end the Hardware Installation Wizard
Depending on the model WinTV board, you may see several New Hardware Found wizards
. Follow the same steps for each.
Step 5 - Run Setup.exe
