Hauppauge 2200 tuner card issues

Hello all,

I have just got a Hauppauge 2200 tuner card but have no software to run it.

I believe the ideal solution is to use media centre but this does not come standard with Win8 so I dont have it on my computer. It appears the cards software is Win7 tv but there is no download that i can find, you have to order a CD.

The cd that came with the card appears to only have the drivers and an extension for windows media centre.

Can anyone recommend software I can use that isnt overly expensive and can be downloaded? Preferrably one with a program guide.

I am currently using Beyond TV trial but they want $99 to upgrade and thats not worth it to me.

Thanks in advance.

I've just visited the Hauppage support website and the problem is that Windows 8 is not supported on that card model. It specifically states:

System Requirements:

Microsoft® Windows® 7 (32/64bit), Vista (32/64bit) or Windows XP Service Pack 3.

See this: http://www.hauppauge.co.uk/site/products/data_hvr2200mc...

Too bad you didn't check it's OS compatibility before buying it. The info is only a couple of clicks away.
