    Hi guy
    Try reloading the driver again for your TV card and then start the setup again for Live TV.
    Doesn't matter if it BSOD's one or 2 times -- just keep re-booting until setup finishes.

    Then it works fine

    I'm using Hauppage HVR-900H USB stick and it works fine (The Hauppage WIN TV application won't work yet on W7 X-64).

    My only problem with the Media center for TV watching is that I can't switch it to accept Composite Video -- but for watching TV channels (Digital - Freeview in the UK) it's fine.

    Enc shot from SKY News (Cricket shot for anybody in USA)

    cheers
