WinTV v8.5 is the latest version of the WinTV v8 application for Windows. This download is a complete WinTV v8.5 application, including Windows drivers for supported WinTV products plus utilities.

Installation notes for WinTV v8.5:

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

You must use WinTV v8 if you have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-930C (16xxx), the original Colossus, HD PVR model 1212, WinTV-HVR-1100, WinTV-HVR-1300, WinTV-HVR-1400, WinTV-HVR-3000, WinTV-HVR-4000 or WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2. WinTV v8.5 does not support these products.

If you do not have an Activation Code, but you have a WinTV v7 CD, you can install the WinTV v8 application.

If you have neither a WinTV Activation Code or your original WinTV v7 CD-ROM, you can purchase a new WinTV Activation Code on the Hauppauge webstore. This can then be used to activate WinTV v8.5 or WinTV v8.

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