I did try to install the driver prior to installing the card, but it still booted up to a black screen. I'm wondering if anyone knows if this card works well with Windows 8. Or with newer motherboards. I can't quite figure it out.
You need a Windows 8 driver.
I had similar issues when I tried to run HVR-1950 because Hauppauge had jumped the gun and marketed their product prior to having available drivers. This was 3 years ago. It took quite a few phone calls and tech support to get this resolved.
I have not tried it on my Windows 8 computer.
