I have upgraded the Twinhan BDA driver to 1.0.4.7

Has anybody used this driver version? Did you get it to work with Mediaportal? I get the error of no map for this device.

Thanks
Conrad

Have you checked the CaptureCardDefinitions.xml and graphedit to see if the information matches up? Sometimes names of filters/etc can change between driver versions (which is very irritating) and the above xml file must be edited to take account of this.

Follow the guide here to edit the entry for your card, if this is in fact the problem.

Edit: On the same page, this says that you need the latest drivers to work, yet doesn't say what version these would be.

Thanks. I did have this working a few months ago with a an older BDA driver version but it had a few bugs for HDTV.

I think I am getting there. The new driver does have different filter names and moniker. I have modified my CaptureCardDefinitions.xml file and the card is now reconised and can autoscan finding all TV stations.

Problem now is in TV, there is no picture or sound. Anybody have any ideas what may cause this. I have tried a few codecs including Cyberlink.

Thanks,
Conrad

Optional Log:
Optional References:

Synopsis: Previously using an older version of the BDA driver, the Media Portal TV functionality worked but had some issues with HDTV. After a few months TWINHAN have released the latest BDA driver with some fixes. 1st proble was the new driver wasn't reconised by Media Portal due to different filter name changes and moniker. Using the guide and GraphEdit, the CaptureCardDefinitions.xml file has been modified and Media Portal can now detect and autotune the card, finding all stations.

Problem now is there is no picture or sound in Media Portal TV, testing with the TWINHAN supplied software the TV tuner is receiving suficient signal to watch TV. Please help, at least let me know eher to start looking (Media Portal beginner)

Thanks in advance

I have a similar problem with my Twinhan DTV Ter (D+A) card and MP. I can tune into channels ok and quite often watch TV ok but I quite often get an error saying no signal and the picture freezes, yet it will show signal quality at 100%. Sometimes when this happens if I change channel then go back to the channel I was watching it will be ok. If I close MP down and then try PowerCinema or ShowShifter it works fine, even when watching the same channel as I was watching in MP, this must be a bug in MP somewhere. I have the latest BDA drivers installed for my card.

Ok, I have it working.
1. I reinstalled MP 0.1.3,
2. uninstalled the TWINHAN TV viewer software,
3. and modified the CaptureCardDefinitions.xml file as before.
4. MediaPortal setup identified the card and autotune worked.

In MediaPortal I can now watch TV :D Maybe a conflict with TWINHAN's software and MediaPortal.

Cheers
Conrad

    So the same as it's been for sometime.

    Ok so I don't need to change anything - thanks anyway.

    Yes. You're right. I've found that removing access to AresPlugin.dll stops AresLog.txt being updated. Although you could delete everything relating to Ares, I think you don't have to once you've removed AresPlugin.dll. Thanks for the help. Tony

    I guess from this, that the mapping steps basically work. Please try to map some of the keys you mention to be not working and upload the log files afterwards. Maybe @Brownard can see something and a solution can be found. Please open a thread in the OnlineVideo section for this, we should not mix 2 topics in one thread.

    I upgraded my Mediaportal PC (Server and Client) to Windows 11 to solve some driver issues as it was new hardware. Then I discovered that my other two Mediaportal Client PCs running Windows 10 would no longer work. I now have them both working and as I could not find any discussions on similar problems, I thought I would just post my...
