Did you download and install the beta3.4 disk, or the disk you
received from Hauppauge? I ask this because the included WinTV works
very well with my Hauppauge HVR950 under Vista. I was never able to
get WMC configured, because it REQUIRES a compatible IR controller
device before it will finish configuration successfully.
NOTE that there is a file you MUST install previous to trying to

Please read ALL sections from this section 'till the end of the page.
It contains necessary installation information.
NOTE that the installation directions provided in this section are NOT
for Vista, but XP. However, by doing what the directions say, and
adapting them for Vista, it will install just fine. Don't forget to
use "hwclear.exe" with the options listed in the installation section

The User must first use hwclear.exe to remove all drivers and
software, then reboot, and install the driver, then install the
necessary software by starting "setup.exe" in the folder you extracted

PLEASE, follow Hauppauge's directions as closely as possible. You
will have to modify the installation a little, so that it will finish
under Vista. Do NOT try to tweak anything, or do it using a
"short-cut" method. (I'm not referring to Windows desktop shortcuts,
but ignoring or replacing steps which would make it easier for you).
