Quickplay on HP crashes

Every time I try to play my quickplay through my tuner express card - the program (quickplay) crashes. I'm running on Windows Vista. I have a new laptop - HP Pavilion Entertainment PC. My tuner express card is a HP external card - RM436AA. Quickplay seems to crash specifically when I'm searching for digital channels through my antenna.

Please help - Thanks! JoAnn

    I'm having the same problem. I updated my quickplay from 3.2 to 3.7, and now when i scan for digital channels, the program stops working after 55% done. I've called HP and they told me that because my warranty has expired, I have to pay for tech support on this issue. My HP notebook is a DV9500 and was custom built for me from HP a little over a year ago. I got the quickplay 3.7 from an update that was suggested to me when I opened my quickplay. 3.2 was working fine, but, i wanted the newer one.

    Same here!
    I have a dv9650us and an external HP expresscard tv tuner. I've had this thing on the road from Seattle to San Diego many times inn the past year and it worked just fine - great actually.

    As of a week or so ago, I can no longer scan for channels, it gets to 41% and just sticks there - and then Quickplay freezes - I have to reboot to close Quickplay. So now it's just a useless piece of junk.

    HP Express Card Digital / Analog not working

    First thing I tried to do was to install the drivers that came into the CD didn't work, just using mydvd9 the import/aqcuire option I could have some noise signal, but couldn't find a way to select channels and hanged after a while. This is too trickier, I thought, it should be a way to used quickplay and other applications.

    I couldn't get anything from HP site so investigating I found the following.

    1) Had to upgrade quickplay to latest version (is pretty cool btw)
    2) The card internally is a Hauppage and found that is actually the HVR1500
    Drivers + application can be downloaded at

    3) After upgrading quickplay and installing drivers and application from hauppage, Quick play had additionally an hp digital tv tuner entry, but here in canada there is no digital signal transmitted through antenna.
    4) I have reinstalled manually the drivers that came in the CD, but from the c:\swsetup\HP Digital tv tuner folder
    5) After this I had at quickplay a second source "Hp Analog Tv tuner" which allowed me to caputure the regular air signal and wintv worked as well

    I'm sure that I did some redundant steps, but it worked and now can I have everything working (quickplay, wintv, digital, analog signals)

    Hope this helps and btw I haev uploaded the manuals for thouse who can't get it, since HP doesn't have them in the website.

    I can't play DVDs on my HP laptop even though I could in the past

    May I suggest that you try other programs to play your DVD's. Such as VLC media player. This program can play any meida file and is free. Also you could try gom player. Both of these are available off As to why your DVD's aren't playing. It may be bcause you have changed regions or because the DVD file is not recognized by the players because they don't have the ability to play certain fornats.

    ATI RADEON x1650 PRO 512 Crash...

    Their is a reason that it crashes and it is not because of the game if  it crashes at other times too. Toom much HEAT is usually the problem. Look for slow or stopped fans. Dust on the heatsink.Run the antivirus. After that clean and defrag the hard drive. Let me knw that that did not take care of the problem.

    After quickplay has finished you will have a updated quickplay 3.7 or better and should run with no problems.
