Windows 7 Has Brought Michael Scott Back
A couple years ago I bought a Hauppauge 1600 to go into my Home Theater room. It worked great with Vista, but like many IT Pros after many tweaks and configuration changes I decided to reinstall. Well little did I know that I had lost my drivers CD and could never download the software for my TV tuner card. It was a real bummer because although the monitor I bought could display 1080P it was not a TV, it was a monitor and I needed my TV tuner card to work to be able to watch TV.
I was so pleased that after my install of Windows 7 Ultimate that Windows detected my Hauppauge TV Tuner and I was able to watch and record TV again, especially The Office!!! By the way, the only reason I needed this was because Sami and I had two other shows that we recorded on our DVR during that time, Supernatural and Fringe. Seriously, why can’t good shows air on days other than Thursday?
Kudos to Windows 7 for having drivers for a device that I thought I would never use again!
