When starting V0.10 on a XP system with a PVR-350 card I have the following problem :

- start gbpvr
- gbpr window appears on desktop
- video out of PVR-350 only shows colored bars

My "hobby bob" workaround at the moment
- start wintv 2000 application
- correct gbpvr output is shown
- close wintv 2000

It happens after a clean start up and also after a standy.

Could this be hauppauge driver related ? the drivers are not the newest, I checked some time ago but the drivers available then were less stable~~(= not workable:( )

Or might some initialization of gbpvr go wrong ?

Thxs !

There was a change in a Hauppauge driver release about six(?) months ago that would initialize the PVR350 decoder correctly. Before this SageTV (which used PVR350 decoder) required you to start and stop WinTV2K to initialize the decoder before starting SageTV. I suspect you have a driver that pre-dates this change.
