Windows 7: Win7 RC1 - How long should an upgrade take?

Ahhaaa.... The old Apple(fruit on a tree nonsense again!) element strikes again! Browse the Program Files directory for Hauppauge there and see if any QT.exe or similar file is present! Right click on that and open up the compatibility tab setting it to run in XP SP2 mode and run as admin.

With another make of tuner card here despite seeing a Vista driver update which never worked to begin with. The picture and sound could still be heard in Vista but greyed out in 7 both 32 and 64bit alike until reinstalled a few times seeing the XP device driver go back on.

Even with that there was still no recording or again stuck with a greyed out screen barely seeing outlines of people and objects. Once the QT.exe item was noticed and that was set as well as the main executable to a previous version like XP SP2 suddenly Vista was also now able to record as well as view! XP 32bit dirvers seem to be working just right on the 64bit 7 presently!

There is no installation, it only installs drivers directly into Windows and doesn't leave any programs behined so, that trick wont work. I do believe that Hauppauge has Windows 7 drivers but, they're not certified and i'm on 64bit, so, that wouldn't really be an option. Maybe it is just a waiting game?

Did that come with a software disk or just a driver disk? The method I found that worked here of course was for an internal pci addon sees a tuner application for the card not just the drivers alone.

Just the drivers, I downloaded them from Hauppauges website.

So you never had any application with the drivers on the original disk? Here I was able to use the XP drivers along with the application and avoid the Vista update to see the tuner card's viewer plus recording capability going. That was a success when finding the QT.exe file and setting the XP mode for that as well as the main exe.

What I found with the only Vista update for the card was they simply would not work on Vista or 7! The 64bit installations even for the 7000 beta went slightly faster then seen with the 32bit. But they still averaged out to only 20min. for each. The one thing that tied things up was getting that to work correctly. I still have to find a way to see that work along with Media Center and not just the original viewer.

I can't really change what drivers I select as it installs whatever it thinks are required. At the moment, my TV card only half works failing to automatically start recordings but SOME channels do work and then they can just not work while an error message in the event log on why it didn't work. I'll grab the error code when I get home.

The error code can help identify the problem at times. Keep checking the device manager as well to see if the drivers are going on fully. Something tells me they are not getting initialized as fully as they should since you seeing only partial results.

The error is:
TV tuner encountered an error. (0xc0040524) Hauppauge WinTV MOD7700 DVB-T Tuner (Dev1 Path0)

Not really sure what that error means though.

I ran into one reference on another model where someone saw that same error on 7's Media center at HVR 3000 14xxxx and windows 7 - Hauppauge UK Forum One place for tracking unknown errors while that looks like a typical driver error seen on various internal pci type tuner cards as well is the Technet serach engine seen at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sup.../ee_basic.aspx

The code number in the event viewer will help further since there are 5 that come up there. TechNet Events And Errors Message Center: Search Results)
