Finally got the drivers forced for the WinTV pci card. Hard to tell what model as it is pretty old, but hardware sees it as does mediaportal. Scan for channels and it lists normal channels for my cable but gets no signal, therefore nothing shows on subsequent screens. Any suggestions?

Can you tell me which driver you used?

I own an old WinTV PVR250 and it works without problems in WHSv1 with the latest driver from this page:

I used the 878 chipset driver from this page.

I did not download nor install the WinTV software, just the 878 driver. I will open the box and check the card and see if I can see the chipset # but I am pretty sure it is the same card as the WinTV Theater card. The only difference I can see from the photo on Hauppauge's site and my card is there is a battery mounted in the upper right of the card. I will pull it and write down all the details.

Thanks sir
