Windows 7: Eject TV Card Annoyance!

03 Dec 2009   #1

Eject TV Card Annoyance!

I've got a Hauppauge TD-500 Nova dual-tuner PCI TV Card fitted and am getting an annoying prompt under 'safely remove USB devices' to 'eject the card' which is easy to accidentally hit amongst other legitimate USB devices which show up.

A couple of times this has happened and it causes Windows Media Centre scheduled recordings to fail.

The reason, as far as I can tell, for the TV Card to appear in this list is because the Hauppauge drivers included a sub-driver for the legacy IR remote control (which does not work with W7MC and which isn't even connected anyway).

So the question is as follows...

1) Can the driver zip file be modified to remove the element for the IR remote?

This is the driver in question.

2) What other dual tuner card could I fit which wouldn't exhibit this annoying trait? (I've got spare PCi and PCiE slots available, but don't want to fit an external tuner, the device must be internally accommodated)

If anyone can suggest either a driver fix, or an alternate card which will work without this annoyance I'd be grateful...
