i went to the HP site got some software, but i do not have the money to register that software.
and i cannot find the driver for it.
i have looked online and done alot, so i have nowhere to go. can any one help me fix this error and find the driver to use this device???
my laptop i believe is a HP HDX 18 . but it had windows vista on it originally, but it now has the 64 bit version of windows 7.

i am still having this problem, windows told me to try and install this AverMedia thing, and it didnt help at all.
all aver media said was that it couldnt find the tv tuner card. and it had nothing to do with my problem at all.

I realize this is an old thread but in case you are still stuck after trying absolutely everything like I did...After banging my head against the wall for over a month and searching all over the place, I finally solved this issue. In my case I was upgrading my nephew's Pavilion dv6 from Vista x64 to Win 7 x64. Your scenario may be different but I highly suspect the same Win 7 upgrade/ install quirk caused it and this remedy will work for you too:
First, make sure you download and install the latest Win 7 ENE CIR Receiver driver from the HP site for your model (mine was v 188.8.131.52 as of the time of this writing).
Next go into control panel > administrative tools > system configuration. Click the Boot tab, then click Advanced Options. Then check the box that says PCI Lock. What this will do is force Windows to align all of your devices to the system BIOS resource configs and prevent it from dynamically allocating them using its own agenda! Now reboot your computer. Check Device Manager and you should hopefully see every device loaded with no conflicts, especially the ENE CIR Receiver. Your remote control device should now work properly, along with all your other devices.
Lastly, go back into system configuration and uncheck PCI Lock and reboot again. You should now find that Win 7 has recinfigured itself to permanently use the new device resource realignments.
