I have just installed a Hauppauge WinTV- PVR 150 in an HP Pavilion a824n desktop running XP Home (no Media Center) that's coming up on 3 years old. I have a 82915G/GV/910GL integrated graphics chipset in the computer. I have this strange problem where at first when finished with the installation, I had a jittery, off-color picture, contacted Hauppauge tech support and downloaded updated drivers, etc. and got a good picture for a minute or 2 and then it blipped back to the original messed up picture without touching anything. Why would it work, and then not? I have a suspicion that when I first start up the computer and the TV App and get a good picture, and then lose it shortly after is that maybe the card is defective where it works for a short time and then heats up to a point that causes the picture to go bad. Am I off base on this educated guess?.....sometimes the picture will be bad at the start as well. Should I look at updating graphics drivers for the desktop? I had downloaded a Graphics Media Accelerator file, but still get same results.
THANKS FOR ANY HELP ON THIS!!
