    Vail (WHS V2 Beta) dose not support TV cards, help bug the MS dev. team that we need it.

    I made a request for it on the Vail dev. page from Microsoft Connect.

    Because as of now the Beta of the new WHS dose not support BDA for TV cards.
    So if you vote it up and feel free to leave behind also comments, like why you want this.

    Also i would advise everyone to go true the pages and vote up things that are useful for MediaPortal/us

    Maybe it will help, maybe it wont, but for sure it wont hurt ;)

    Properly limpwhizkid's How to install Mediaportal on Windows 2008 R2 (x64 only) guide will work ore yhoogi's TV-Server on WHS - Collection of fixes and workarounds will work.
    But not everyone is comfy whit OS hack's and till its build-in, the MP dev. team wont support it, and imho it should be something that's standard in WHS, and as they all ready have the code they form Win 7 that they can re-use implementing it inWin7 should not be a big job.

    Like said before, i'm playing around with MP on Vail since the beta is available.

    Here's a screenshot running TV Server 1.1 RC2 on Vail with a DVB-T Receiver(BDA Driver of course)

    Is that native supported ore did you use the patch, because from what i could find one Vail, is that it dose not support it out of the box.
    And i think that is needed, and yes i am going to change to Vail even if the DBA support dose not come native, as there is a working fix, still i think it should be native as one update can break you working box till some smart people find a way to fix it again, still this would properly be days before its fixed and in the mean time you have no TV server.

    I did nothing except installing the BDA Driver from the DVB-T receivers manufacturer and the TV Server. And if you look into the registry you will find masses of reg keys refering to BDA...

    mike how did you get around the fact that the tv server install ask for windows media player to be installed? does vail have windows media player on it?

    i remember having to crack my WHS v1 install to get wmp11 installed on it before i could install the tv server

    There is no problem with windows media player... You only have to install tv server like on windows 7.

    great sounds a lot more promising then, hope they make it easier to recover from corrupted hdd , eg ability to extract contents of a hdd without needing a VAIL install.

    I can't promise anything, but i think they will offer a software to access the files... and if not anyone of the community will extract the drivers from Vail ;)
