Help identifying DVR card

I recently had to reinstall a computer that has a DVR card installed. Unfortunately I can't find the install disks, and the card itself has no identifying markings on it. Usually, my go-to would be to look up the FCC code, but I can't even find that.  

Does anyone have any ideas?

If you plug it in (and windows can't get the drivers), look it up in device manager and get the vendor ID (it'll look like something like this "PCI_VEN1002&DEV_..BLAH BLAH" and should be under the details tab of the device properties).  Once you have the vendor ID you can google it or maybe find it here.
its a techwell 9903 or TW9903

That's not a bad idea.. I can see that a chip on there. i think that might be the chipset, no?  Maybe I can track it down by finding which manufacturers used that chipset.. hmmm.

It's a generic 8 channel MPEG-4 DVR card.  The Techwell chipset means the onboard hardware decoding should be pretty good.  Designed for security camera use rather than normal TV use though.

FWIW here's one being sold at the moment online from Montreal

Thanks for the tips. That Vendor ID trick is a good one, I'm sure I'll be using that a lot in the future.
