First you will need to plug the card into a PCI Express X1 or X16 slot then use the provided Support CD and install its drivers and application using the autorun menu that pops out when you insert it in the CD/DVD-Rom and that's it. When the process is finished, the computer might restart itself in order to complete the installation process.

Thank you for your reply:

I did all that, receiving this message:

"! The software you are installing for this hardware
Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1250 [Model 79x Hybrid ATSC/QAM]
Has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify it’s compatibility
With Windows XP

Continuing your installation of this software may impair
Or destabilize the correct operation of your system
either immediately or in the future. Microsoft strongly
recommends that you stop this installation now and
contact the hardware vendor for software that has
passed the Windows Logo testing."

After selecting 'Continue Anyway' My computer froze and required manual

When trying to install drivers from your disk using 'setup' I get the same
message. I also get "Installation Complete". When selecting your card from
the 'add hardware wizard' in control panel, I get "This device is working
properly" I don’t know how to select TV channels or to bring up the device
on my display.
Also, I have to restart the computer to remove the Hauppauge message display
which is always on top

The mother board is an ASUS P6T WS Professional. The CPU is Intel I7 Quad
core. The operating system
is Windows XP SP 3 Ver 2002. I do not want to upgrade to Windows 7 because
I have it on my lap top and
don,t like it..

Please help.
