Default Running Altdvb on Vista

After a lot of experimenting, I finally have Altdvb running ok on Vista.

It is necessary to right click the icon or Altdvb.exe prog and select 'run as administrator'. If you double left click, the prog runs in the background doing nothing. It is then necessary to close the prog via task manager.

I have also found that the codecs cannot be registered in the filters folder. It is necessary to put a copy of the .ax files in windows\system32 before running the registration batch file.

Yes mine did that several times. You need to copy the drivers over to windows\system32 and try uninstalling and reinstalling again. For some reason Vista insists it is installing the correct drivers but it puts the wrong ones in.

You need to run altdvb by right clicking on it and selecting 'run as administrator'

Then select the BDA card
