    I tried enabling Vista services associated with Media Center, and installed latest drivers from Happauge. The problem persists.

    OS Name Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium
    Version 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 Build 6001

    on Acer Aspire 5520-5334 laptop.



    Microsoft has posted hotfix for this problem for hybrid tuners (mine is). Did not install: wrong system. Two other Acer users had similar problems but the posted solutions did not work.

    To Microsoft credit, the problem was taken up by a Vista professional, and although she was not able to solve it, she succeded to elevate the prolem to Microsoft escalated level professional. I think I will post the solution if one is found since it may apply to other users. I still think that Microsoft hit a sweet spot with all the new features in the Media Center.

This is a typical example of why so many Vista users are installing XP on their systems. Even Bill Gates himself expressed dissatisfaction with Vista at a meeting a few weeks ago and spoke about an early release of Microsoft's latest Operating System Windows 7 to solve Vista's issues shooting for early 2009 for it's release. So, if all else fails and it may, downgrade/upgrade to XP (If it ain't broke? Don't fix it!).

Dell? Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1250 TV Tuner "IR Hardware not detected" message during setup

Make sure you have the remote sensor plugged all the way into the connector on the card. Also check your taskbar for the "remote" icon which confirms you have "irblaster32.exe" installed.

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 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.

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

TV Tuner for my HP

Hello Matt,

WISH YOU HAPPY MERRY CHIRSTMAS!!!!!!!!

I am Vikram Kumar Thumu from India- Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to the Tv Tuner card. Since, I work with HP as Technical Support I would like to suggest you on this issue.

Well, the "HP ExpressCard TV Tuner for Windows Vista
(RM436AA#ABA)" supports only for Windows Vista.... and it will not work with Windows XP.

If you are lookng for Windows XP Tv Tuner Card, I recommend you to purchase Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2 (EC557AA#ABA). As this one supports for Windows XP but needs Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 .

These are available solution for you at this moment . I hope that this should resolve the issue for you.

If you need any other information please do mail me at [email protected]. I'll be glad to help you.

Once again WISH YOU HAPPY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!


Thanks,
Bye...
