PVR-500 and WIN2K
I have a problem with a Hauppauge PVR-500 installation … Hope someone on the board can assist with this problem.
For quite a while the machine has been working perfectly using standard cable TV, BTV 4.3 and 2 PVR-150s (Hauppauge driver 126.96.36.19953).
My plan is to remove 1 PVR-150 and replace with a PVR-500. I thought this would be a non-event since both the 150 and 500 use the same drivers. The machine does not have an available PCI slot (otherwise I would just install another PVR-150).
PIII 1.0 gig Dell Dimension 4100 with 512meg of RAM
Windows 2000 – SP4
Beyond TV 4.3
PVR-500 23552 Rev D587
Machine is headless HTPC used for BTV and mp3s. Never used for anything else.
1) Executed hcwclear.exe (clear WinTV drivers and applications)
2) Shutdown PC
3) Remove 1 PVR-150
4) Install 1 PVR-500
5) Restart PC
6) Install Hauppauge driver 188.8.131.5253 for each tuner
7) Delete BTV source
8) Define BTV source for each tuner
Worked fine for the PVR-150 but would not work for PVR-500. Channel will not tune in, picture to blurry to watch, but audio works. After a bit of research, found Hauppauge beta drivers 184.108.40.20608. Installed 220.127.116.1108 drivers using above process. Same result … PVR-150 worked and PVR-500 does not work. Removal of the remaining PVR-150 also produces the same result.
Anybody have an idea of how to resolve this problem?

fmharr, the drivers I used should work for 150 and 500 cards. Not sure what you meant ...
