Not sure if this forum is still active but, I am having issues with the hd pvr and my rogers cable box. I have the HD PVR by hauppauge, and a scientific atlantic explorer 8300 rogers cable box. I have my system set up as such: Rogers box component out connected to the hd pvr in, from there I have component cables coming from the hd pvr out to the component in on the back of my tv. Also my laptop is setup through the provided usb. I get a black screen when using the total media extreme 2 software. The tv picture and sound work on the tv but I can't record anything to my laptop. Has anyone had similar issues or know how to possible solve this issue? More information can be provided if needed. Thanks for reading.
