A few years ago I bought the WinTV USB2 device from Hauppauge so that I could connect a DVD player to my laptop. At the time, I was running Windows XP, and it worked beautifully. But when I upgraded a few months ago to Windows 7, this was the one piece of hardware I couldn’t get to work. Since then, I’ve searched for solutions, but to no avail. I can install the WinTV software that is recommended for my hardware, but when I go to run it I get an error saying “Error: can not locate Capture filter (Hauppauge PVR USB2 AVS Video Capture)”.
Anyone else been able to figure this out, or do I just need to upgrade to the newest hardware? Anyone else have a good solution for connecting a DVD player to a laptop?
