    This error is caused by the optional windows media center update that was released in June? 2006.

    Did you really think that you could get drivers for a Conexant Falcon II TV tuner from the Hauppage web site?

    Go to the HP website and look at the options available - for example - for the Pavilion m7590n, you'll find that HP offers two drivers for TV tuners - the Conexant Falcon II and a Hauppauge.

    What that says to me is that the Conexant Facon II and the Hauppauge are different cards - from different manufacturers

    Reinstalled - as in using the original CDs?

    I've reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP Media Center Edition SP2 - plus all hot fixes and drivers - the system sees the Conexant Falcon II card - but I cannot get the tuners to work.

    I tried Chris TV and with an automatic scan it detects the local TV and radio channels, so I know the tuners are working, but still no video or audio :(
