Support: Latest WinTV-HVR Media Center kit drivers for Windows 7

Notes:
The Media Center products from Hauppauge (for example, the WinTV-HVR-1600 MCE board or MCE Kit or the WinTV-PVR-150 MCE-Kit) do not include an MPEG video decoder. If you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or a Windows Media Center PC, it has come with a Microsoft certified Media Center MPEG decoder pre-installed. If you are building a Windows Media Center PC, please check with Microsoft for a list of certified MPEG decoders. YOU WILL NEED A MICROSOFT CERTIFIED MEDIA CENTER DECODER TO WATCH TV!
