Ok. I tried these. No good. I removed the card, and then ran the utilities, and then reinstalled the card. This time there was a prompt that asked me to OK installing a non-WHQL driver, which I said OK to. After that though, same thing.
I looked up the PCI Vendor ID and DEV ID on the PCI database, and it referenced a brooktree chip and a hauppauge driver. I remembered earlier than some months ago I had a WinTV card in the same machine. I removed it, and removed all the software when it was removed, but thought there might be some remants left. I ran the Hauppauge hwclear utilirty several times, and removed all references to it in the system. But still no go.
On the "multimedia device", if I go into properties and then details, the device shows a line that starts with PCI\\VEN_109E&DEV0878. On the Multimedia Video Controller, the line is PCI\\VEN_109E&DEV_036E.
Can one of you with a Fusion HDTV5 RT card check the properties of the various devices that show up associated with the card in the device manager and tell me if these are the same?
I am wondering if windows somehow thinks this is still the wintv card, and is therefore ignoring the Fusion drivers. I can't understand how this would be, but it would be nice to check it off, esp. since the database on the web maps this to hauppauge drivers.
PS Oh yes, the DVICO people responded to my post on their Q&A system and thought it must be defective hardware. I am not so sure though.
