    Hello all.

    First thing I had DigiTV-HD software from Nebula running fine but then discovered Media Portal which seems absolutely superb after banging my head against a brick wall with Meedio. So I followed the instructions for changing to BDA drivers on Nebula's website and I now have "Nebula DigiTV USB BDA" showing under Sound, video and game controllers in Device Manager. (Originally I had both Master and Slave USB boxes connected but then removed the Slave - made no difference).

    In Media Portal configuration, Television, Capture cards, I try to add but it says there is no card to find.

    I didn't spend much time on it as in the course of me trawling this site for ideas I discovered the TV Server which is much more appropriate to what I want to do anyway.

    I followed the installation videos through SQL setup and got as far as starting config in the TV Server app itself but again, no TV card is detected.

    I can't find anything already on this site to help - these TV devices are supposed to be supported according to the list, and although some people report problems, they've all got a lot further than this.

    Please help!!

    Did you ensure to power down (unplug from any powered hub) the Nebula devices as this is needed to clear the firmware and allow the new BDA drivers to uplaod the correct firmware .

    Does the Digi-TV software still work. It should stilll work with the BDA drivers (but only for a couple of minutes). This will confirm wither the drivers are working ok.

    10/10 to SciDoctor. If this is mentioned in the instructions on Nebula's site then I must have missed it - anyway I now get the device recognised in TV Server. Not finished yet but am getting closer...

    Many thanks to both!
