You should be more descriptive with the scenarios you get BLOD's if you want help. I can't speak for everyone; for me, using Vista with the proxy app, is rock solid. In fact, its so solid that I use that machine as full time workstation as well; running all 10 tuners (4 of them R5000s) invisibly in the background. I can even play 1080p 3D games in the foreground while all 10 tuners are active in the background at the same time. I even have FTP, HTTP (with asp.NET apps) servers on that same machine.
As far as troubleshooting goes, general rule is remove all USB and PCI peripherals except the device causing the bug check from the driver. If youre still getting BSOD's without anything connected, except for the R5000 on a clean Vista machine... its an incompatibility between your motherboard with respective drivers and your R5000. If it doesnt BSOD without anything connected, then you can start adding your devices back one by one until you see which one conflicts with the R5000; causing the BSOD.

DVBLink, I saw your comment about modified .inf files, and tried that, but it does the same thing. Is anyone else having this problem?
