Hi, I'm hoping somebody here can help me. I ordered a HP Hauppauge wintv HVR-1290 capture card. Today I received it and it only came with a disc with nothing written on it. The contents are basically for other capture cards (I think, nothing refers to HVR-1290) and a couple versions of Wintv, which goes up to 6.
I did download version 7 through Hauppauge but it refuses to install without the original disc, and the disc I have isn't counted.
So I tried installing version 6, I can't get a picture at all. I tried scanning for channels like I have with my previous card, on an older computer, and it makes all the static like it's changing channels but doesn't give me channel 3 like I had before.
I installed 2k and that too did the same thing. I have both composite and TV hooked up. My tv cable is considered analog, I have a private box from Comcast I connect only to my card, so it gets reception.
But, I have Ulead Video Studio 9 and Corel Video Studio Pro x3 and I can view both the analog tv, like I could with my old tuner on an old computer and also the composites. Apparently my capture card does work, but I can't figure out how to make it work with WinTV. That was always my go to program, the pictures always better through that program.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I am on a HP computer, with Windows 7.
The driver I used to install the card was from the HP website, so it's compatible with Windows 7. I just purchased this computer, HP Pavilion p6516f-b. My previous computer had Windows XP Media Center, so this version of Windows is very overwhelming... and confusing.
Does anyone know what I should do?
