BDA (Tv tuner support) on Server 2008/R2

Recommended Posts

About the registry keys, maybe interesting to know: before importing them, I took a full backup of my registry. After importing the keys (and seeing everything worked fine), I reimported the backup. It said it couldnt import everything because some keys were in use. My pvr-150 was still working fine. Basically, I think this way maybe one can filter out the unnessary keys, because the good ones are in use.

Thx Wima for getting this to work!

As i dont have any Vista 64 machines available, its hard to get the files needed to run the bdaforserver thingie.

Anyone able to help me get hold of the files needed to make this work? I have a PVR-500 card.

One problem exists. See here

Try installing a trial version of BeyondTV. At least that might rule out your PVR application. I've had no such issues with a PVR-150 and Live analog TV with my software.

Hi there,

Good news from me. I've already sucessfully setup my TV Card - Leadtek DTV2000H on Windows Server 2008 x32 system.

Steps what did i do:

  1. Install latest Leadtek drivers for Vista x32 (download)
  2. After restart, there was 1 unsucessfull driver installed(later i found it was WinFast DTV2000 H WDM Audio Capture)
  3. Update this unsucessfull driver with driver CX23880. (download)
  4. After restart all devices are installed successfull, there are no unknown/unsucessfull drivers in Device Manager
  5. Then i found repack of BDAForServer with included files from Vista (SageTV for Server2003/2008 - search for - Microsoft_BDA_Components_For_Server_2008.
  6. Extract archive to C:\bdaforserver\ and run as administrator c:\bdaforserver\Setup For x86\Setup BDA.bat
  7. Then i follow instructions from file Instructions.txt
  8. After restart i install latest WinFast PVR2 (download)
  9. The hard part is done
  10. Now i run Winfast PVR2 application and program successfully detect and allow me to select capture device WinFast DTV2000 H WDM Video Capture
  11. Rescan channels and i got all channels like in Windows XP, yeah!
  12. But hey, i hear no sound from my speakers!!!
  13. But when i try to record movie and then play this record movie, i found that movie has audio and i hear everything. funny isnt it?
  14. Then i play with volume settings icon in task bar, right click on icon, select Playback Devices, on tab Levels i increase CD Audio to maximum, and now i hear sound while watching channel in WinFast PVR2 program!
  15. Thats it, everything is working!
  16. Thanks a lot shahed26 !

Does anyone know if this will work for a PVR-350? I'm planning on moving my SageTV Server to W2K8 (and then to W2K8 R2) and would like to know if I should follow these same steps.

This worked great to get BDA on Server08 x86 - Cheers!!!!

On x64 Clean Install and using the bdaforserver instructions

I was receiving Access violations on FusionHDTV.exe and CreateKsFilter Failed on starting the tv app.

The Manufacturers website only mentioned that "the driver of the device is not installed properly" thanks dvico.

Only Video in was enabled & the tv tuner(s its dual DVB-T) showed up as unknown devices within the app even though windows drivers installed fine.

With the TV tuner working on Vista64 (Same machine/hardware different partition) & thanks to you guys I used Graphedit (add filter, expand the list, and screen capture) just to check what filters were listed on Vista 64 and on Server 64. Graphedit seems daunting... but just compare the filter lists...

The BDA CP/CA Filters were missing on Server [although the header was there thanks to Wow6432node reg].

On Vista The filter list shows:

#The display name for the missing filters contains the: CLSID {C4C4C4FC-0049-4E2B-98FB-9537F6CE516D}

#The Filename is the file we need... EncDec.dll

1. Open regedit 'find' all 'keys' in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\ with: 9537F6CE516D and export (theres 10) to "new folder"

2. Do the same for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\ (I just made 1 file and copied it, to do a 'find/replace')

3. Copy EncDec.dll from system32 to "new folder"

On Server x64

4. Copy to and register %systemroot%\system32\EncDec.dll

5. Merge the reg files exported from vista

Open the TV app and scan for channels ...SWEET IT WORKS...

NB.Dual Tunner - if it disables the first tuner (in windows devices - the device cannot start code 10) Just force ESCD in BIOS

Attached is the process (scripts not dlls) - I think its wise to make your own though - IF U DONT UNDERSTAND DONT USE...

Anyway just thought this might help save some time with similar probs, & sorry if its already been posted.
