Xp media center says no ntsc tuner installed

Okay, Media center does not work with some Wintv HVR's yet it will work with the software it came with and sometimes media center will use the wintv software to make it work but its sketchy. If you want a more media center compatiable card look at website they have a list of media center compatable Tv tuner cards, Trust me I am having the same problem with my tuner card now and its not wintv its a RCA and its under windows 7 this is just the thing here not all card work with media center.

Thanks for using please do click the accept button.

Windows media center can not find ir receiver

be sure you have installed the driver. If you are using windows 7 you still need to install the winTV driver. I know this because I had the same problem. It should work then. Just go to TV setting in the media center setup and it should scan for channels.

Hi, you can download the driver for the HVR-1600 from HERE
(53MB FIle)

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
Run 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.
IMPORTANT! Once rebooted, please do not cancel any 'Found new hardware' wizards. Also ensure that the original driver CD is NOT in the CD drive.

Step 4 - New Driver Installation
After Windows reboots, you will see some New Hardware Found 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
Run Setup.exe from the extracted folder (from Step 1). You will be presented with a list of things to install, leave all the default settings and click Install.
Once the installation is complete, all drivers will be installed and you should have a WinTV2000 icon on your desktop.

Problem installing WinTV HVR 1600

It just means that it is not not registered to work with windows by microsoft.
The manufacturer doesnt have to work with Microsoft to make their products work.

If possible you can go ahead with the installation. To be safe set a restore point before doing so, though

Wintv 2000

From the Hauppauge website:

Error Messages when attempting to run WinTV32 or WinTV2000:
Error messages such as: "Error. Cannot locate capture filter", "Cannot build filtergraph", "Error connecting Vcap and HCWCap filters", "Error connecting preview pin" can be caused by bad driver installations. Run the latest driver on the Hauppauge WinTV-USB technical support page to fix this. This new driver runs HCWCLEAR first, and then automatically reinstalls the driver.
Aternatively you may receive an 'Initialization error HTV=## '. Please look in the Device manager to see if the Hauppauge WinTV USB is listed correctly in the Device Manager. If it is not listed properly or if it has a Yellow mark on it, the drivers should be reinstalled.
Also, look under Universal Serial Bus controllers in Device Manager and be sure that the "Universal serial bus controller" is listed correctly(not disabled) as well as the USB root hub. If disabled, re-enable, and reboot.

I get problems loading my instalation disk .

try and go to the manufacturers website and downloading the latest drivers from them. Sometimes they have trouble with the drivers on the cd but obviously can't recall every cd, so they release the updated drivers online through their website.
