Thanks Patrick, when I first got the HDPVR I went back and forth trying to
decide to use the serial blaster or the HDPVR blaster. I had seen there were
some issues getting the HDPVR Blaster to work so I went with the same method
I had been using for years, guess it was the wrong choice. DOH

I think I will switch the blaster over to the HDPVR tonight.
