BDA (Tv tuner support) on Server 2008/R2

138 posts in this topic

Hey everyone;

I recently setup server 2008 X86 with a PVR-500 card and sageTV. The card is installed in device manager fine, but SageTV doesn't see it. I am assuming it is because of the no BDA support. When I found this thread I got excited, but having read through all the posts in this thread, it doesn't sound like this will work for me because my card is analog. Am I correct in this assumption? My system used to be XP and I really don't want to go back to it. If anyone with my card has any advice I would appreciate it.

TIA,

Mav

PS-I dont have a vista CD to play with unfortunately...

Well I have decided to forgo using server 2008 altogether. Sagetv is reported to work in server2003 and WHS, so I am going to give that a try....

One problem exists. See here

Has anyone solved this problem yet?

For me it was an issue with the Hauppauge card PVR-150 which doesnt support an x64 Vista or 2008 server installation with 4GB ram. You email Hauppauge, send a screenshot that prooves you have a Vista X64 with 4GB ram (not the 2008 server, they will not help you then). After that you can ask to have your PVR_150 replaced for another card. I've got a 1700 for an extra 40€.

I would love to try the bdaforserver for my Server 2008 x64 but the Rapidshare download link says it has been downloaded the maximum number of times and I am reluctant to use other copies as I do not know if they are the legitimate and/or the latest. Any help would be much appreciated.

Justed downloaded that new link from rapidshare.

Only contains one file bdaforserver.exe 876k and a dir with a load of 3D Glass Imaginations Wallpapers [1600x1200] HD Collection!

don't see any instructions and it does not appear to do anything.

Can you confirm this is the correct download?

Hi guys,

does this still work for Windows Server 2008 R2 ?

I guess one has to gather the files from Windows 7 but how about the files in the bda folder ?

Update:

Ok, I tried this on W2K8 R2. It still works. I got the files from Windows7 of course, instead of Vista.

While bda.inf was installed I got the message that a file was already present and in a newer version. I think it was bdasp.sys.

Where did you get the files inside the BDA folder ? Can I update those from Windows7 as well ?

Bye,

Alex

Could somebody please provide a link to the Windows 7 x64 BDA files?

File Reuploaded!

You MUST have a Vista x64 installation DVD, or Vista x64 installed On your current system to get these x64 files.

Hello,

I also try to install my TV card on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (64bit) machine. I want to use my Hauppauge PVR-500 TV card with GBPVR software to watch and record TV shows from the livingroom with my Egreat M34A NMT.

The card is analog.

I received errors when I use the GBPVR TunningAssistent.exe and select my card.

TuningAssistant

Failed to find Crossbar filter. Wrong device type?

---------------------------

OK

---------------------------

I would so happy when I can run it all on my Windows Server 2008 R2.

When I start PVRX2 at the w2k8 machine then I received also an error message:

---------------------------

---------------------------

Sorry, this system does not support the required VMR9 video render.

---------------------------

OK

---------------------------

I have al the things doing in this forum.

* Install a Windows Vista Eng (64bit) machine and get the files with BDAforServer

* Install Windows Server 2008 R2 and activate Desktop Experience and Audio

* Install Windows Media Player 12

* Install K-Lite Codec Pack

* Install Media Player Classic - Home Cinema x64

* Run all the register files the are post

* Run 'Setup BDA' to install the Vista files

* Install GBPVR

My server has no Audio device and a simple onboard Video card. When a Audio device is necessary, let my know, then I go to buy one. My Video card is a 'XGI Volari Z7 controller with 32MB of Video Memory' wish is onboard of my systemboard: 'Asus Server DSBV-DX'. The system has 8GB of intern memory and 2x Xeon Quartcore 2.5GHZ processors and a ARC1222 Raid Card with 4 HDD in a Raid5 set.

Can someone help my to get the analog TV Card (Hauppauge pvr-500) running on my Windows Server 2008 R2?
