I hate to start a new thread, but I've been searching for hours and can't find what I'm looking for. Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction.

I recently "upgraded" my HTPC mobo and CPU to that listed above. In doing so I also reinstalled XP and updated to MP from RC2. Everything was done as a clean install with XP Pro SP3 and new drivers, also listed above. In doing the XP updates, the driver for my VBox 150 was automatically added by Windows. I followed the Quick Setup Guide that came with the MP 1.0 install, including adding the DVB Hotfix, and have issues with the TV Server Config. The SQL setup seemed to go OK as that was what the test said, and the TV Server started sucessfully. At first my VBox was detected as an ATSC type, but on a channel scan, no channels were found. Subsequently, my card has been detected as an unknown type and I'm not able to select it to do a scan. I've rebooted and the card still comes up as unknown. I've gone through the forum, wiki, and as much troubleshooting as I can find, but haven't seen a remedy to my issue. Any guidance or direction is much appreciated; the Super Bowl is tomorrow.

I seem to have some issues (possibly related?) in my TV Server Error Log, I've attached it.
