If you have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-850, WinTV-HVR-950 (not the WinTV-HVR-950Q), Colossus (not Colossus 2) or HD PVR model 1212, you MUST use WinTV v8. WinTV v8.5 does not support these products.

A WinTV v8.5 Activation Code will be needed to install this WinTV v8.5 version.

If you do not have an Activation Code , but you have a WinTV v7 CD, you can install the WinTV v8 application (look in the WinTV 8 Download tab).

If you do not have either an Activation Code or your original WinTV v7 CD-ROM, you can purchase a new WinTV v8.5 Activation Code on the Hauppauge webstore for $9.95 or $11.95. This can then be used to activate WinTV v8.5 (or WinTV v8).

If you have a WinTV v8 Activation Code for Extend, the latest version of WinTV v8.5 with Extend will also be installed.
