Windows 7: hauppauge colossus set up with directv

hauppauge colossus set up with directv

I am trying to set up a new Windows Media center 7 64bit htpc using a hauppauge colossus.

I am having trouble right at the beginning when wmc tries to find the tuners. It thinks it is connected to a cable box instead of my directv satellite box and so does not allow me to choose directv during the setup of the tuner.

It detects "Digital Cable (1 tuner)". I hit 'Next' and it only gives me provider choices of Uverse and Time Warner Cable, not DirecTV like I need.

Anyone able to help me figure this out? I've loaded the special colossus wmc drivers from the hauppauge website, but it doesnt help.
