Windows 7: Tuner not found

Win 7
Tuner not found

I just installed Win 7. I have a Hauppauge HVD 1800 tuner card which worked find in Vista. I've tried restarting MC services and reinstalled and updated video and tuner drivers. I tried restarting MC with no success. Still won't find the tuner. Any ideas?

Can you be more specific on the TV Tuner, I don't see the HVD 1800 listed.

Have you tried re-seating your TV tuner card?
Sometimes things just get dislodged during a rebuild, it could explain why W7 isn't detecting it.

It's actually HVR 1800. I haven't touched the hardware so I don't think reseating could be the issue. I am still working through Microsoft suggestions but I've reinstalled the drivers several times so I don't think that's the issue.
