    Default HVR-2250 driver makes Windows 8 boot longer

    I've installed Windows 8 Pro 64-bit with Media Center on my system today on a system with an Intel Core i7 920, EVGA X58 MB, 12gb ram and Kingston 240gb ssd. When I was starting my PC in took under 7 seconds to load to the metro screen, but after installing the latest Hauppauge HVR-2250 driver, my system now takes up to 30 seconds to load. If I disable the card in device manager or uninstall the driver, my system boots again under 7 seconds. When I was on Windows 7, I never encountered that problem my system booted very fast. What could possibly cause my HVR-2250 to take over 20sec during booting.

    I have the same problem with my HVR-2200 under Windows 7.
    At first I thought it had something to do with my ssd, so I bought a new and even faster one then I had, but the problem is the same.
    It has to do with the latest chipsets supporting the I7 processors. (see my pc specs below)
    I've been struggling with this, but much more with my driver randomly stopping, problem for over 2 months now.
    After consulting this forum, I opened an official ticket with Hauppauge, but sadly their customer support is under par.

    I finally fixed my problem for the long pause from startup to desktop. I decided to search for and older driver for my HVR-2250 and found the 7.9.1.28162. I replaced my current (7.9.1.29297) with the older one (7.9.1.28162) and now my system loads in less than 7 seconds. So I guess there is an issue with the latest driver in Windows 8 to cause the long pause from startup to desktop after boot.

    The firmware loads during boot which can add some time.
