The Solution: As stated previously, in the control panel go to Devices and Printers...go to the bottom to the Unspecified section...right click on HP Wireless Video Transmitter and select properties. Go to the Hardware Tab. In the device functions section Highlight HID-compliant vendor-defined device and click properties at the bottom. Click on Disable device at the bottom. The HP wireless transmitter and receiver connect properly automatically.

Same issue with my ENVY DV6 and Sony Bravia HD TV. Was working like a champ until I upgraded to Windows 8.1. HP, do you have a tech solution? Is it a driver issue?

I used to be Bartydom above but now I'm Dombarty because I couldn't manage to get logged in using Bartydom. Quick recap. I have 2 wireless connect kits both of which went utterly dead when I upgraded to 8.1 pro from 8. I was really bummed because I'm involuntarily home all day so I download movies and all, run them with VLC and watch them on my boob. After spending a couple of hours on chat help with HP, they determined that I would have to go back 8. But due to my inherent laziness, I had failed to back up msn 8 so there was no going back without a total reinstall of 8 which would have been a nightmare. Plus, I wanted to keep Media Center running. My simple mind was spinning with the alternative wireless products out there so I gave myself one last chance to make my HP work. Somehow I did it! Here's what I did; I went into my devices and started messing with the HP WIRELESS VIDEO TRANSMITTER properties. I disabled the device and as soon as I did so my link returned like a champ. I couldn't believe my luck because I had no idea what I was doing. I was tempted to experiment with re-enabling the device but I'm not going to tamper with it. I hope it holds up. The sound from the tv is skipping a little bit but that was beginning to happen before I upgraded to 8.1 pro anyway and I'll work on that later. So now I'm settling in to watch "Redemption" with David Straitham which I downloaded from the net. I hope this helps you all out.

Ramvoo and Sebastian1979
I have looked into the issue you are having with your HP Wireless TV Connect 2 and the new Windows 8.1 upgrade and here is what I have found. Neither HP nor GeForce have created drivers for any operating system except Windows 7. Although, the computer and TV may have worked with Windows 8 it would have most likely been still using the Windows 7 drivers. Unfortunately, the upgrade to Windows 8.1 at this time is too much and the drivers are not compatible.
I would recommend going back to the last operating system you were successfully using with a restore point and keep checking back to see if new driver become available for your video graphics card. I am listing both the HP Drivers page so you can check back periodically to see if new drivers have become available.
