    Dear Freecom owners, :-P

    ok this is for everyone that got a Freecom DVB-T stick dated after February who cant/couldnt get the hacked/tweaked third party BDA drivers to work.

    Freecome has released a set of BDA drivers here:

    you will find that if your product id PID is 620 then you will be using the tridvid.ini drivers.

    IF YOU HAVE a 620:

    Add the following to your CaptureCardDefinition.xml

    I had to graph this stuff, but it works a treat:

    <capturecard commercialname="Freecom Digital TV Receiver" capturename="Freecom Digital TV Video" devid="vid_14aa&amp;pid_0620#2.0#">
    <capabilities tv="true" radio="false" mpeg2="true" mce="false" sw="false" bda="true"/>
    <interface cat="capture" video="2" audio="3" mpeg2="1" sectionsandtables="5"/>
    <filter cat="networkprovider" name="Microsoft DVBT Network Provider" checkdevice="false"/>
    <filter cat="tunerdevice" name="Freecom Digital TV Receiver" checkdevice="true"/>
    <filter cat="capture" name="Freecom Digital TV Video" checkdevice="true"/>
    <connection sourcefilter="networkprovider" sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="tunerdevice" sinkpin="0"/>
    <connection sourcefilter="tunerdevice" sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="capture" sinkpin="0"/>

    Have fun with the new BDA driver on MediaPortal.

    I know many of us have been looking for these for some time :)
