Thanks for the guide. As soon as my daughter finishes watching The Wiggles on the HTPC, I'll boot into Server 2008 and try this.

Good news, it worked for me. The only thing that I had to do was extract bdasup.sys from BDAXP.cab and place it into C:\Windows\System32\en-US. The Compro TV viewer does not work, but that's not a problem because I use Webscheduler to record my shows and I convert and watch them later.

Thanks for posting this solution. :D

Cheers

Zac

The "bdasup.sys" file is already on server 2008 located on C:\Windows\System32\drivers. The "BDAXP.CAB" Has the old version of it which will cause problems (maybe). my advice is replace the old bdasup.sys FILE you copied from "BDAXP.CAB" with the original server one

ok, this is the same problem i had as well. Just run the file bda.inf from "BDAXP.cab" (from latest direcx download)again, and restart (right click on bda.inf and then choose install). if its promting you to install pnp devices that it finds, then just click cancel for all of them if it still does not work, then run bda.inf again, and this time when it finds the pnp devices, just locate and install. when its prompting pnp install make sure you browse to the files extracted from "bdaxp.cab"

Also the guide is sort of confusing, double check everything, and repeat all actions from my guide again if its still not working.

Make sure you have the latest "DIRECTX" installed. also a decent codec pack

run this file from DXSETUP.exe from the latest DX9 Redist download

if it still does not work then do this:

run the file bda.inf from "BDAXP.cab" (from latest direcx download)again, and restart (right click on bda.inf and then choose install). if its promting you to install pnp devices that it finds, then just click cancel for all of them if it still does not work, then run bda.inf again, and this time when it finds the pnp devices, just locate and install. when its prompting pnp install make sure you browse to the files extracted from "bdaxp.cab"
