WinXP SP2, 3GHz Core2 Duo, Intel D975XBX2, 4GB RAM, 750GB disk


Latest Hauppauge drivers from their website installed.


Brand new HVR-1800 works great with RF (cable) input.


Hooked up a VCR to composite input (using the adapter provided) and RCA-plug audio cable. Video looks good, but no audio in both WinTV and BeyondTV. Connecting audio from VCR to the PC's audio line-in shows there's a good signal, so the problem has to be in the hardware or driver. In this configuration the audio is several seconds ahead of the video (due to the MPEG encoding delay on the Hauppauge card, most likely) so that's not a solution.


Anybody have any ideas on how to get composite audio input working?

If you used only one audio cable from the VCR did you connect it to the right(r) or left(W) RCA connector input on the 1800 card?

Then it appears that you have a defecive tuner card. or that you have the tuner cards input muted which I doubt is the case.

I had to bring the audio drivers (from Intel) up to the latest versions, and then completely remove and reinstall the Hauppauge drivers and application suite. Now it seems to be working.

MCE will scan the RCA ports when I setup an S-video input. But when I restart the PC (vista 64bit, HP m9277c) It subsequently loses sound.


Which components did you uninstall/reinstall?

I'm running on Windows XP Pro. In my case I just updated my video (NVidia) and audio (IDT from Intel) drivers and reinstalled the Hauppauge drivers. In my case, I have 4GB memory so I also had to install the beta driver for 4GB systems that is available at http://hauppauge.lightpath.net/softw...1_27_26017.zip


I also discovered that after installing the beta driver you must physically reset the card by completely shutting down and power cycling your system.

Are your audio problems resolved?


I just purchased two HVR-1800 PCIe cards and placed them in my system and now I have strange audio issues as well.


I'm running Vista 32-bit Ultimate on a:


Intel DP35DP motherboard

Core 2 Duo Processor

4 gigabytes of memory

TurtleBeach Rivera Audio SPD/IF

Using beta drivers for Hauppauge HVR-1800 for 4 gig memory..


Every now and then, audio just completely blanks out. Video is fine but no audio. I recieve audio from the MCE interface, DVDs, videos, Music Library, but no TV. If I reboot the computer, audio is still gone from the HVR-1800's. I actually have to shutdown the machine, wait 5 secs for memory to clear and then turn it on.. Then audio works for a couple of days and then I have to repeat the process...

Man, this is happening to me too!


I have Vista x64 Ultimate with two 1800 cards. I have 8GB of RAM in this system and have installed the Hauppauge patch for system with more than 4GB.


One 1800 has audio the other doesn't.


I have tried uninstalling and re-installing audio drivers - rebooted between each.


I still have the same problem.
