    Hi everybody,

    I use Digital Everywhere FireDTV S2 as TV-card. When I installed Win10 64 bit, it turned out (as expected before) that there is no official driver for the card. I know that the enterprise is not existing anymore - but perhaps one of you who is more talented in such topics has already found a workaround?



    Thanks,
    clip@ing

    Hello and welcome

    Have you tried using the same driver/instructions as for W7 and W8?

    Hi,

    latest Win 7 FireDTV 5.7 Beta driver works in Windows 10. The driver model hasn't changed from Windows 7 to 10 for those devices. I have made a fresh Windows 10 install.

    At least for single card setup the FireWire legacy driver trick is not necessary. I do not know if Microsoft did fix the Windows 7 FireWire bug in Windows 8 or 10 though.


    Cheers
