Ceton BDA drivers?

Post#1 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:33 am

Do they exist? Would like to get ITV to work with Plex DVR.

ServerBDA will tell you if you have them

So this won't add the drivers if they're not present but rather tells me if there present?

I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center so I'm pretty sure BDA is part of the OS. The issue is with the Ceton drivers not supporting BDA. At least that's what I've gathered from the Plex forums.

It just seems weird that every other tuner out there is BDA compliant and the InfinTV isn't.

Your opening statement was a little vague. I wasn't quite sure what to suggest, as I am not familiar with the project you are trying to complete. ServerBDA will collect BDA drivers, and inject the drivers in an O/S that is unable. Here is a little bit on why we were using it.

Right. So this patch is for Windows operating systems that don't have BDA (i.e. Windows Server xxxx).

Plex DVR is dependent on tuners that use the BDA platform. It seems pretty much every WMC compliant tuner also conforms to this standard except for Ceton.

Plex has officially said they're not going to bother with Ceton due to them being non-existent. I'm not so sure if they're completely non-existent. The commercial products that use the InfinTV 6 PCIe PRO are still being produced and sold. I talked to the company (ATX Networks) and they're still there.

So it makes me wonder if somewhere out there Ceton did produce these drivers and just never released them. Unfortunately, we'll probably never know...

I'll still give the file you attached a try. What could it hurt?

Running the grab files will at least identify their names and where they are located. As I recall there are 17 in system had another 17in sxs.

So I attempted at see if ServerBDA would help me out with the Ceton driver package. It didn't. I read through the readme file and it states you have to have a working Windows 7 64bit install to retrieve the files and then transfer them to a Windows Server 2008 box.

I'm positive that my Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center machine has the BDA stack built into the OS.

Where my problem lies is that the Ceton drivers don't interact with Windows BDA.

So I'm back to square one. I wonder how NextPVR talks to the Ceton tuners?
