    crazy, etc,

    This sounds like a tough one. I can't tell from the information provided
    whether this is a Vista problem or a WinTV (Hauppauge) problem. A little
    more information would be helpful. For example, how is the WinTV card
    connected (cable, over-the-air, or whatever)? What is meant by "cannot get
    the card to pick up any input in thr rca jacks?" In my mind, input is via
    some sort of antenna or cable. Clarification please. Also, are you using
    Windows Media Center or the WinTV software? We need more information. You
    may want to consider contacting the vendor for support that they may be in a
    better position to provide. Just some thoughts, because I don't know what
    else to say.

    The card is connected to the pci slot on my computer and I have a rca
    cable (the red white and yellow cables) connecting my video camera to
    the card itself. The card should show the video that I am imputing
    from my camera on my computer so I can capture it and convert it to
    Dvd (I have been able to do it with my old windows XP Computer). I am
    using the WinTV's Wintv2000 software to capture the input but nothing
    is showing up. I also tried capturing it with some Roxio software but
    again I get no image displayed. This leads me to believe it is a
    driver issue but I have updated all drivers from the Hauppauge website
    and don't know what else to do or try.

    I have a Sony Digtal Camcorder and I just use the USB connection on the
    computer and capture with Media Center.
    I could never quite get the Hauppage to work for capture under XP or Vista.

    Thanks, the clarification does help.

    The first thing you need to know is whether Vista has a problem with the
    WinTV PCI card. To check for this information, open Device Manager. In
    Device Manager note whether it is displaying some problem with the card, such
    as displaying a yellow ! or some other indication, such as showing "Unknown

    Unfold the entry for the card and select Properties. The information
    displayed there should indicate that this device is working properly. Any
    indication of problems in Device Manager must be resolved to get Vista to
    play nice with the card. Follow any advice provided by Device Manager.

    If Vista doesn't indicate a problem with the card, then we can assume that
    the issue resides somewhere with the WinTV software or settings, etc. When
    you consulted with Hauppauge, what did they say? We need to know this. What
    did they do to troubleshoot the issue?

    If you can't identify the problem any other way, try reviewing the settings
    in the WinTV software. Make sure you read, understand, and follow all
    instructions. Here is a site that may be helpful:

    Let us know what happens.

    Have you tried the drivers available at the Hauppauge UK site (CD 3.4a1)?

    I live in the US, but these drivers (not available on the US Hauppauge site)
    work perfectly in both Media Center and WinTV 2000.

    You must first use WinTV to set up the inputs: click MENU button > Suite Manager
    Sources tab, select Composite or S-video

    I have tried multiple drivers that I have found on the Hauppauge
    website (United States along with UK and others) including:
    version date
    2.048.25037 2/6/07
    6.0.6000.16408 1/8/07 9/15/06 8/15/06*
    6.0.6000.16386 6/21/06

    *Note if I update it automatically or from the first link on the
    Hauppauge website It updates me with the 8/15/06 driver

    None of them seem to work. This makes me wonder if it is actually the
    application that is not updated to work for vista or If I am using the
    wrong version. I am using WinTv-2000. I have also not contacted
    Hauppauge yet with my problem because they are closed this weekend but
    I plan to call them tuesday. Any information about WinTv-2000 working
    with vista or any updates I need would be greatly appreciated.

    I ended up calling tech support and after installing a variety of
    different things and troubleshooting with the guy I was able to get it
    to work and am all set to go.

    Thanks for your help.
