I have a Hauppauge WinTV - PVR 500MCE Version 2.9 from 2005 and I am trying to reinstall it back into my PC(Dell Media Center Edition) after a very long time has passed. I am having a problem to say the least.
When I go into Media Center it is giving me a message that "Your WinTV model type can not be determined or appears to be unsupported. Please make sure the unit has the drivers installed and it is plugged in (if USB)"
I went into Divice Manager and Tuner #1 has an "!" (in yellow) and I tried to update the drivers and got the message "Wizzard could not find a better match". Tuner #2 gave me the same message "Wizzard could not find a better match".
I inserted the Hauppauge CD - went to setup and I get the same driver message that I received from Media Center. Sounds like a driver issue.

Now way back when I first installed the program and the hardware (it did work at one time) I recall that there were some issue in regard to Media Center or maybe it was Service Pack for the Pc. I hate to go out and replace the tuner card with a new one when I have this one installed and it did work at one time. I am sure that there have been quite a few changes in my computer since the first install but anyone out there have any advice for me. I am using the following PC

Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Dell Dimension 8400
Pentium 4CPU 3.20
3.19 GHz 2.00 GB Ram
