Question about Hauppauge MyTV TV Input
It took forever to get the software to download to my iMac G5. Every time I'd try to install, I'd get an error message. Somehow, although I do not recall the means by which I did it, I got the software onto the computer. Now when I click on the My TVX icon, I do actually get a menu bar: MY TVX, file, devices, window. The simplest thing should be obvious. How do I know if the device is on and working? There are no lights that I can tell. Nor can I tell toward which end (or top or bottom) to point the remote. It would appear to the untrained eye that the software wants to run (finally), but that the hardware is not being recognized. Thank you!
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

I just had this same problem. Same mobo. Same vid chip. Same TV card.
I resolved the problem by correcting the AGP apature size (256Mb) in the system board BIOS settings.

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 www.microsoft.com 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.
