In Start\Programs\Hauppauge can you see a ICON called Primary. Click that and try it.

stallion ive just tried that driver update, its doing the same thing
woodchip when i click on primary it just tells me version number and has options om it to do with video display mode ?

It should change how it runs on the computer

Go to WinTV in Explorer and check what the Log file says if you can see one. just double click and it should open in Notepad
