Unfortunately, one of the links on that page (http://hauppauge.lightpath.net/software/install_cd/hauppauge_cd_3.4d1.zip) generates a "Not Found" message  :'(. Any suggestions?

Sorry, but in this case Google is NOT MY FRIEND (that link Is where I got that corrupted file from in the first place), and uelsk8s is the one who helped me get an uncorrupted copy of it anyway, so what I'm looking for now is an UNCORRUPTED copy of "tip.tar.bz2".

What link are you referring to? Because the link itself that you gave me worked for me too - it was the file referred to by the link that didn't.
