Hi folks,
after reading this forum fo a while, finally got my Typhoon/Twinhan card running. Stil needs some performance tuning, but i can watch tv.

I think, most important is how it worked.
Here we go :

- Installed renura's BDA drivers (latest) today.
- used THBDAconsole app to fix settings in registry :
LNB-Type Low
LNB-Low-Freq 9750
LNB-High-Freq 10600
DiSEqC none
LNBPower on
22K Tone on
- Edit CaptureCardDefinitions.XML like following :
<capturecard commercialname="Twinhan VisionDTV Sat" capturename="TwinHan PCI BDA Capture Filter" devid="ven_109e&amp;dev_0878&amp;subsys_00011822&amp;rev_11">
<capabilities tv="true" radio="false" mpeg2="true" mce="false" sw="false" bda="true"></capabilities>
<interface cat="capture" video="3" audio="4" mpeg2="1" sectionsandtables="2"></interface>
<filter cat="networkprovider" name="Microsoft DVBS Network Provider" checkdevice="false"></filter>
<filter cat="tunerdevice" name="TwinHan PCI BDA Tuner Filter" checkdevice="false"></filter>
<filter cat="capture" name="TwinHan PCI BDA Capture Filter" checkdevice="false"></filter>
<connection sourcefilter="networkprovider" sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="tunerdevice" sinkpin="0"></connection>
<connection sourcefilter="tunerdevice" sourcepin="0" sinkfilter="capture" sinkpin="0"></connection>

- Delete Twinhan VisionDTV Ter in the same File
- Config Card in MP like following :
LNB-Select 22KHz
LNB Ku-Band

Now try to find the right codecs fo Television Plugin (that's my performance problem)
Autotune for Astra with included astra.tpl finds chanels in different groups and I can watch these chanels. Now I have to find the right codecs cause the TV-Screen has short drops.

Hope You find this helpful!
Good Luck trying with your card!

From the tips and tricks sticky:
the best mpeg2 codec i found is the Intervideo mpeg2 codecs
which come with WinDVD 6. They support VMR9 , DxVA, HWMC


Anyone know what sw="false" means? If this means software (vice hardware) then I would think it should be true. Or does it stand for switch as in Diseqc switch?


i do all the step but MP give me the msg "unable to create directshow" and "this section is only for DVB-S card"

    What's up so far?
    I'm looking for a cheap card in addition to the SkyStar2 - the TwinHan would be nice for 35€ ;)

    Do you get a high-quality non-stuttering picture?
