Hi, I have a bgt 3595 BGT3595-0611 - BlackGold more or less the same as 3635 without freeview HD, it works perfect on windows 7 HP 64 bit, for recording up to 4 channels a once 2 sat HD and 2 SD terrestrial if you waned to! I have actually just removed it from my PC as I don't use it any more. BlackGold card are the best you will find with great support/drivers etc, not cheap but I would recommend them. 1 point to remember is these cards get HOT so make sure you have efficient cooling in your PC.

I don't have the blackgold but have a hauppauge nova S2, only single channel but works fine with WMC. I wanted to add that as @willin warns these sat decoder cards get very hot. I suspect its because they need enough juice to power a dish, but anyway make sure you have sufficient cooling.
