I was browsing to the >New Magic site and noticed that there's an update driver available for the Hauppauge HVR-2200 - V7.6.1.27023.

From the release notes, the following changes are listed:

Driver Release (1/23/09)

  • SECAM AM Audio Fix.
  • Appropriate CIRCoInstaller Support in INF for Vista and later.
  • ATSC/QAM tuner sensitivity improvements.
  • 64Bit OS "greater than 4G" memory issues resolved (black/green screen issues).
  • Support for "EnableAutoOffset" reg patch.
    • This improves situation for Australian users whose signals are re-broadcast on non-centered frequencies but whose streams report the original (way off) frequency.
  • Failure on "First Tune" resolved.
  • Support for the hcwWilt_RegisterAdapterObject_ registry patches.
    • The "Std" version fixes a Microsoft Bluescreen on some 64Bit [Dell and potentially other] machines which bluescreen under some circumstances.
    • This is NOT a Hauppauge bug and unfortunately we are presently powerless to detect this situation dynamically.
    • But this registry patch will resolve the issue.
  • TDA10048 SNR fixes and efficiency improvements.
  • QAM Suppport on Fiji/Win7 by default. Overrideable via reg key.
  • Introduce 888x, 88Ax, 898x, and 89Ax models for programming.

Loaded these on my Vista box and working a treat! :)
I'm in SA and have had big problems with channel Nine (SD & HD) locking up/losing the signal since installing my HTPC whereas no problems when I had my digital set-top box (connected to the same aerial output). Now, no problems with any channels. Yay! :D

Now, I just gotta work out why I'm not getting any guide data (?'s for all channels).
