DVB-T under Win2k question

x-posted to boggyb and techsupport_ot

To those in the know: is it possible to get DVB-T tv viewing/capturing to work under Windows 2000 with a Hauppauge HVR-1100 card?

Alternatively, is it possible to upgrade from said Win2k install to WinXP Pro without the upgrade disc eating the computer alive, scrambling anything installed, and frying the graphics card in the process?

Yes, I bought the card without checking that it would work under Win2k. Everywhere clearly states that WinXP is required, so I don't know why I thought that. *selflart*

The analogue TV, FM and remote control all work fine, but it refuses to have anything to do with Freeview. The card's a HVR-1100 (UK version), and I'm running Win2k SP4 patched to date. I have spotted this nice upgrade academic version of WinXP Pro for about £60, but I have a dim view of major software upgrades (a fresh install is far cleaner and far more likely to work).
