    Looking for BT878 TV card driver for Vista X64

    Has anyone come across a 64 bit driver for a tv card with BT 878 chuip? I
    have a Hauppauge PCI FM which uses this chip (like many other (older) TV
    cards) and it seems Hauppauge is not going to provide drivers in the future.
    But I guess any other BT878 driver should also work. I just wasn't able to
    find one yet.

    Have you tried installing the XP drivers and the Hauppauge WinTV2k
    application using XP compatibility mode?

    Yes I tried that as well as using built in drivers from different
    manufacteurs which all ended in a sudden crash and reboot. when I tried
    several .inf files I got "this is no X64 driver" messages...
