Hauppauge launch Windows 7 drivers for WinTV

The drivers keep coming for Windows 7 with Nvidia, ATI and now Hauppauge launching Windows 7 specific drivers. I have been testing Hauppauge’s Nova-T 500

on Windows 7 using the Windows Vista drivers and on build 7000 dual tuners didn’t work (later builds have fixed this so I think it was a Windows issue) and I have issues with some DVB-T channels not working at all so hopefully the new Windows 7 drivers will work better.

So far I am not sure what has changed and how much better the performance will be, I am installing them now and lets hope that Channel 4 works this time…

Thanks to @databasejase for the tip

UPDATE: Channel 4 still not working (and other channels on the same multiplex) but C4 works with a avermedia tuner. Siganl strength 100% so that is not the issue. Maybe a clean build will sort it?

UPDATE2: All working, I split the channels and only used the 100% signal stations for C4 and now it works

    Would be keen to see what’s changed, as mine is working fine on 7068 with the old drivers, so Im not sure what i’d gain?

    I am testing it now and I can’t see any changes

    Now if they could figure out how we could use the HD PVR as a tuner in 7MC or VMC that would be awesome.

    Testing the drivers on my Windows 7. Will see how it goes.
