Yes. hauppauge win tv pvr pci II (26xxx) as far as tv listings programs i just downloaded it off of media center
the new development is that i got it to work for about an hour ... but now i got a video error message
media center locks up & i have to reboot . see before this when it was working, it froze & told me i had to update drivers for my tuner so i went to the website and did what it asked me to do so now is when i have the video error message ... i tried to restore my system to a earlier date but it went sour... is there a way that i could remove those drivers???

have you reinstalled the drivers yet? I would update your video and sound drivers as well.
