2. Infrared-Receiver, is fully connected to the IR socket of the WinTV-Card
3. Infrared software is started - The IR icon is on the start bar
To start WinTV press the GO button and a menu will appear. Use the scroll up and down button to select WinTV2000 and press OK to select.

Pause button or OTP button
Clicking the Pause button or OTP button causes WinTV2000 to start recording into WinTV's
Replay Buffer. It takes about 10 seconds for the Replay Buffer to be initialized and for Pause
to become effective.
Unclicking the Pause button will cause the audio/video program to start playing from the point
where the button was originally clicked.
Most WinTV2000 functions are active while in the Pause or Pause Live mode. For example,
you can change volume, resize the TV window, go into "no-title mode", etc.
While in Pause mode, the Video Position bar shows the amount of the Replay Buffer which is
filled with video. For example, if the Video Position indicator shows halfway, it means that half
of the Replay Buffer is filled. If you find you cannot Pause as many minutes as you would like,
increase the size of the Replay Buffer.
While in Pause mode, the A/V stream is always saved in the Replay Buffer. To stop saving the
A/V stream in the Replay Buffer, you must exit the Pause mode by clicking TV mode.
WinTV-Scheduler allows you to schedule the recording of TV shows. WinTV-Scheduler, once
it is set, can be closed, and the WinTV application will “wake up” at the desired time and
tuned to the desired channel.
After installation, WinTV-Scheduler can be found by going to Start / Program files /
Hauppauge WinTV.
WinTV-Scheduler works by using the Windows Task Scheduler to launch WinTV at the chosen
time. WinTV-Scheduler sets up a command line in Task Scheduler to run WinTV2000, specifying a TV channel and a length of time to record.
To set up an event for timed watching or recording, run Scheduler and click on the Add
Program. The items that need to be set for each event are:
● Time to Begin Program: set to the desired start time. The default time is about 3 minutes
from the current time. Click on the hour to set the hour, the minute to set the minute and
the second (if you feel this is necessary) to set the second to start the program.
ote: It takes about 10 seconds to launch the WinTV and set up for
recording, so set the Time to Begin Program to 10 seconds before
the time your TV show actually starts.
Replay button
Time to End Program: set to the time to end this event.
ote: you need to leave at least 30 seconds between scheduled programs to give the recorder time to set up its disk buffers.
While in the Pause mode, hitting the Replay button acts like the Instant Replay you see on TV
broadcast sporting events: the audio/video goes back in time and you repeat what you have
previously seen. Each click of the Replay button causes audio/video to go back 10 seconds.
For example, if you want to repeat the audio/video you saw 10 seconds ago, you would click
the Replay button once. If you want to see the video you saw one minute ago, you would
need to click the Replay button six times.
For extended replay times, you might find it more convenient to grab the Video Position indicator control bar and move it to the left. Once you let the control bar go, audio/video starts to
play (it might take a few seconds for the WinTV2000 application to start playing).
You might have to move the Video Position indicator to the left and right to find the desired
spot to start replaying audio/video.
While Replaying, your audio/video program continues to be recorded in the Replay Buffer.
Therefore, if you have clicked the Replay button 3 times (so that you are replaying the
audio/video seen 30 seconds ago), the video you see in the WinTV window will be 30 seconds behind the "live" audio/video program.
Program Period: one time, daily, weekly
Date to Begin Program: today’s date is the default. Change this if you want to schedule
on another date.
Source selection: leave set at WinTV2000 to bring up the WinTV at the requested time
and on the requested channel.
Channel selection: choose one of your scanned channels.
Recording options: click on Record to File to record your show. Leave this button
unchecked to watch TV at the requested time. You can also name your file to record.
VTPlus for NOVA-S-Plus is a sophisticated analogue Teletext software application which is
only availble on certain satellite channels. VTplus allows you to view multiple teletext pages,
save or print teletext pages and create Dynamic Data Links so that teletext data can be used
in other applications. The WinTV application does not have to be active while the VTplus teletext application is running.
To start the VTplus application click on the Start / All Programs / VTplus for WinTV.
ote: VTPlus uses the channel list of the analogue WinTV2000 for
finding the VTplus information. It is therefore necessary to scan for
channels first in WinTV2000 before starting the VTplus application.
11. Using a external source
If you are using a external source like a Hi-8 Camcorder, Video recorder, Games console etc,
then you will need to connect via the S-Video / Composite for the Video picture and Line-Input
for the sound.

FCC Statement
Radio Interference Statement:
The WinTV boards have been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try
to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
● reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
● increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
● connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
● consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
CAUTION: Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance to the FCC Rules could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
CE Statement: This equipment has been tested and complies with EN 55013, EN 55020 and
IEC 801-3 part 3 standards.
In the WinTV2000 application click the Menu, suite manager and input sources.
To add the S-video or Composite channel highlight the entry and then type in a name for the
channel (e.g. Video recorder). Select the Video Format from the drop down list (note: Pal
BGHIDK is the commonly used format in Europe). Click on Preview and then Save.
Select Close to finish.
13. Troubleshooting
To uninstall the Driver and Software
To uninstall the software simply run the hcwclear.exe off the installation CD and select the last
1 option and the entry “search all INF files etc”. If you now select “OK” a black screen will
briefly appear and once it has disappeared the software will be removed. If you now re-start
the computer you will be at Step 5 on page 3 of this document and can now re-install the software.
Error: “Error code 10” during installation
This is caused by a failure to load the WinTV-NOVA-S-Plus drivers. Uninstall the software (as
above) and then follow the instructions from page 3. If this still give you an error message
move the WinTV-NOVA-S-Plus to a different PCI slot and re-install the drivers again.
Problem: Only some channels are found during channel scan
Please ensure that your satellite dish is correctly aligned by consulting with a satellite installer.
Problem: TV display has problems (e.g. no picture but with sound or blurred image)
With the WinTV2000 application closed click on the WinTV program group (Start / Programs /
Hauppauge WinTV) there is a utility called “Primary”. Set it to one of the other options and
then close using the “X” and re-start the application. If it is still the same try another option.
Skip ahead button
Clicking the Skip button will skip the video ahead 10 seconds.
