I have a lot of problems with this express card, first i plug the card before install the driver, so the card was detected, but capture signal about 3 minutes, after that no signal captured, but card detected. To uninstall driver, i have to plug the card, go to "administrador de dispositivos" (mi notebook is in spanish -sorry the bad english-) and uninstall the driver and the software related, turn off the computer, unplug the card, turn on the computer, install driver, plug the card, wait to install hardware, an all channels working, but i end session or turn off computer, and the next time i want see tv, only one channel work. i do all the process again and all channel work. i restart and only one channel work. Help please. firstname.lastname@example.org

Guys, its a hauppauge driver.. if you use the stock HP driver it works, but you need to run the hauppauge HWCLEAR utility to remove it, and reinstall the HP driver. SOME hauppauge drivers will also work prior to 4.1D. Hp's tech support on this issue is pure ****, they just resell this junk with the manufacturers word it works. The HVR1500 was never released to the public, and its function in XP MCE and Vista is poor on many versions of laptops. There is a IRQ issue which hard hangs the system and you have to manually adjust the IRQ which is NOT an easy task since it defaults to IRQ16 The express card tuner for pavillion 8000 models should be avoided by the general public. It will work for 1-2 min and lock up the system, unless yer a tech guru, your chances are slim. HP TS will have you replacing hard drives, and reinstalling OS's to no avail. Choose another product and save yourself the headache.

You are installing the driver before putting the card in right?

Had same problem. Windows says device is installed properly, Media Center says no TV tuner is detected. Hadn't rebooted in a few days, so I restarted the laptop and now it works! Try rebooting.

Do you get an error message in Windows Media Center when you try to watch live TV. If so try rebooting the machine.
Note: Windows Media Player is required to run this product. If you don't have it will have to upgrade your operating system. Also make sure you have the right driver.
