i have just purchased a Hauppauge WinTV Nova USB tv card for my pc. i
am having difficulty installing the software, because when it has
finished installing and i open the program a message appears saying
'OpenDevice not successful, Hardware not connected'. i have made sure
all the leads are connected and i have installed the newest driver from
the net, all to no avail. any ideas??

I assume the TV card is usb2.0. Does your computer have usb2.0?

Did you follow the instructions in the manual ? If the device
was defective, you would not have seen the "Add New Hardware
Wizard" when plugging the Nova into your already booted computer.

The manual seems to be installing the device first, then the
software driver for the device, followed by the applications

If you wish to start the process over again, use "Add/Remove"
to uninstall the application, then you can try deleting
the device in the Device Manager. A typical recipe for
cleaning out everything in USB is here, but I don't know
if you have to go to that extreme at this point. If you are
seeing multiple entries of the Nova device, then
some kind of clean up of Device Manager may be needed.

At least that is where I'd start looking.
