Freezing since changing to Sandy Bridge and now Ivy Bridge processors
I have the HVR-1700 and it was running fine with my Core i7 940 system and then I upgrade motherboard and CPU to a Sandy Bridge-based system and freezing occurs on first launch of WMC. The TV signal plays back for a few moments and then it freezes. I need to re-launch to get it to stay working.
I recently upgraded again to Ivy Bridge and another new motherboard (Z77-based). This time I had to completely clean install Windows 7. Installed the very newest 64-bit drivers for this card. The problem continues. Freezes within a minute of WMC launch. In fact the freezes can be a little worse now. WMC becomes unresponsive and Windows 7 can't even offer to end it. It eventually closes after a minute or two. Upon re-launch it behaves normally. This happens every day first launch.
Does this sound like it's a bizarre Hauppauge driver incompatibility with the Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPU's??? Anyone else experiencing this?
