Can't get Hauppauge WinTv PVR PCI II (23xxx) to work
I have installed a Hauppauge WinTv PVR PCI II (23xxx) in my computer some time ago. I am running 64 bit Vista Home Primium. I have never connected this board to a signal so I am not sure it works - system seems to think it is working fine. I have just moved to DirecTv and had an extra receiver to use so I decided to hook this thing up. I can't get it to work. Media Center indicates there is no signal to display even though it found one when doing automatic set-up. I have no idea how to set WinTV to the channel that DirecTV is using (I have set it to both 3 & 4 with no change in situation). I have downloaded the latest driver from Hauppauge with no change in situation. I do hear some very btoken sounds but not enough to understand. I have a quad Extreme Processor with 4 GB of memory and a Geforce 8800 vide card with 640 Mf memory. The system is almost toatly idel.

Re: Can't get Hauppauge WinTv PVR PCI II (23xxx) to work
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, how is DirecTv connected to the Hauppauge WinTv PVR PCI II? A single coaxial cable or through a receiver box using yellow, red & white RCA cables.
if it were a single coax, then Channel 3 would be correct and the selection/source of the WinTv should be standard broadcast (STD). Additionally pls verify that it is connected to the TV IN port and not the FM IN port;
if through a receiver box with composite output, the WinTX should use Video/Audio IN or S-Video as you have connected;
alternately, you may want to remove the TV card, clean the little gold pins with a hard pencil eraser.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.
