Bt878 Driver Windows 7 X64
Could they have written a driver to make the old card work (of which I have a few just like it, so I'm in the same situation)? Sure - BUT, the old card doesn't have the same capabilities, so they'd either have to sacrifice features (meaning that they couldn't advertise a consistent feature set for the Media Center product) or they'd have to sacrifice performance, as they write software to do what can now be done more effectively in hardware, which will give a poor user experience to any user who insists on using old hardware, and therefore a bad reputation for the OS/Media Center feature. All of this added effort to damage the overall experience of Media Center, to save someone with a 7 year old card from having to spend $50 to buy a new, superior capture card that is compatible? It just doesn't make business sense.

AVerMedia TVCapture98 (Bt878) drivers will help to eliminate failures and correct errors in your device's operation. Download AVerMedia TVCapture98 (Bt878) drivers for different OS Windows versions (32 and 64 bit). After you have downloaded the archive with AVerMedia TVCapture98 (Bt878) driver, unpack the file in any folder and run it.
Download link:Patched version: _fixed/DScaler423a.7zSince it is work in progress the archive does not contain a full install package, you have to install the regular 4.2.3 version first, especially if you require the native hardware drivers for e.g. BT878 working.Old 4.2.3 alpha package: _fixed/DScaler423.exe
I can have a look into the driver build (though they should be identical as I haven't changed anything there). Also the installer packaging has to be done...One thing I noticed recently is that the native BT878 driver fails when e.g. Win10 x64 boots from UEFI. However I'am not sure if there exists an easy fix for the native driver that makes it work with UEFI.
Where to find some universal BT848/878 Windows 7/10 64bit driver? Because i just have some unknown multimedia adapter present in Device manager and last drivers from vendors are for XP.. I found some universal driver on sourceforge, but it doesnt not seems to work, my Genius card is not listed and wasnt lucky with custom profile.
As written in the first post, first install the regular 4.2.3 and then copy the 4.2.3a over. The patched version is no installer version, the driver did not change from 4.2.3 to 4.2.3a.If you still get some message about e.g. 'overlay not supported' switch to Direct3D surface (which should be default anyway on modern Win). Backspace removes the message.
Otherwise i got it working with Windows 7 x64, Dscaler now recognized my card as Genius Wonter III and Philips PAl codec, recording is working. For driver i used SDI driver downloader and card what there recognized as LifeView FlyTV Prime 34FM and driver was succesfully installed and device looked as working, but because i had Dscaler problem (incomplete install), i installed Philips SAA7134, Hybrid Capture Device driver from SDI tool its from 12.8.2009 - Driver version 188.8.131.52.. its working, i dunno it would work with Lifeview FlyTV driver too..
Sound:Other recording thing is a bit annoying, when i use line in as sound input on recording machine, i have duplicity of sounds sources - one form original machine - speakers and second on recording machine. When i turn line in off in Windows mixer recording is mute, its possible to handle it otherwise than turn off speakers on recording machine.. I dont want turn off speakers on source machine and play in windows on recording machine.. and because of machines / speakers orientation, sound from speakers of recording machine is not full substitution.
If you use a DirectShow device then go to DShow Menu, Filter Properties, choose your Hardware Input device and as sub branches available property windows of your directshow device appear. Usually there is also a source resolution option in that dialogs.
Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Microsoft Digital Video Recorder device drivers manually, we highly recommend downloading DriverDoc [Download DriverDoc - Product by Solvusoft] to assist in updating your Bt878 WDM Video Capture drivers. DriverDoc saves time and headaches by making sure that you are downloading and installing the correct Bt878 WDM Video Capture drivers.
Bt878 WDM Video Capture errors can be rooted in an outdated or corrupted device driver. When the operating system that your device depends on gets an update, drivers can suddenly stop working with it. There is hope for Digital Video Recorder users because they can usually solve the problem by updating their device drivers.
It can seem impossible to find the right Bt878 WDM Video Capture driver directly on the Microsoft's or related manufacturer's website for your Digital Video Recorder. However, even if you are good at locating, installing, and upgrading drivers for the Bt878 WDM Video Capture, one can still waste lots of time and be very frustrated with this endeavor. You can only make your problems worse if you install the wrong driver for your hardware.
It is strongly recommended to use a driver updating program as updates can be time consuming and complex. An update program not only provides the right drivers that are compatible with your hardware, but it also guarantees that there is a backup of current drivers before any changes are made. Backing up your drivers provides you with the security of knowing that you can rollback any driver to a previous version if something goes wrong.
We recommend installing XCAP prior to installing the PIXCIframe grabber. Please refer to the Software Installation chapter for the XCAPinstallation directions, then follow the frame grabber installationinstructions below. Installing XCAP software, which includes thePIXCI frame grabber drivers, prior to installing thePIXCI frame grabber isn't required, but more convenient.
Attach the USB green key. Run the Windows Device Manager, lookfor the ''USBKEY'', ''USBKEY64'', or ''Keylok 2'' device, ask theDevice Manager to install or update the driver for the device,pointing the Device Manager to XCAP's chosen installationdirectory:
In some circumstances, it may be necessary to avoid use ofpixci.sh and pixci.rc (and the implied use of Linux' /etc/rc for automatically loading of drivers duringboot), and instead manually load the driver when needed.
The optional pixcitty_*.ko driver isused in addition to, and installed after, the correspondingpixci_*.ko driver. The optionalpixcitty_*.ko is NOT needed for access tothe Camera Link serial port via XCLIB's proprietary API, nor is itneeded by XCAP.
The optional pixciv4l_*.ko driver isused in addition to, and installed after, the correspondingpixci_*.ko driver. The optionalpixciv4l_*.ko is NOT needed for access tocaptured images or video via XCLIB's proprietary API, nor is itneeded by XCAP.
Linux limits the maximum amount of allocatable frame buffermemory, dependent upon what other devices are installed, thecomputer's total memory size, and other factors. Installing thedriver immediately after booting Linux improves the likelihood ofbeing able to allocate large amounts of memory.
Linux may provide less frame buffer memory than was requested.If no memory could be allocated, the PIXCI frame grabber willnot be available, stating ''Can't allocate frame buffer memory''.Otherwise, within XCAP, the number of available frame buffers canbe checked under PIXCI, PIXCI Video Setup, Resolution. As the frame buffermemory is allocated once during the driver's initialization; thecontents of frame buffers are retained as XCAP is closed andrestarted, but lost if the driver is uninstalled or Linux isrestarted.
For manual installation, correcting problems, or integrationwith an OEM's procedures, installation instructions are provided intext file hardlock/INSTALL within the XCAPinstallation directory. Alternately, see the hardlock/drv/src_i386/Makefile for compiling theparallel port key driver under the current kernel, the hardlock/drv/pinst shell file for installing theparallel port key driver, and the hardlock/sbin/dinst shell file for installing the USBkey daemon, all within the XCAP installation directory.
The parallel port key driver is needed under 2.4.x, 2.6.x, 3.x,4.x, and 5.x i386 kernels even if the parallel port version of thekey isn't used. Parallel port keys are not supported under newerx86-64 kernels; the hardlock/drv/src_x86_64/Makefile and related files areprovided for legacy systems.
if bit 0x100 is set, the driver applies a patch so that theframe grabber can be opened after Windows awakes from sleep orhibernation modes. Only used with Vista 32/64-Bit,7 32/64-Bit, 8/10 32/64-Bit, and 11 64-Bit.
XCAP may have been configured for one or more variations, suchas, (a) Automatically opening, or not opening, the PIXCIframe grabber and displaying the PIXCI Image Viewer,(b) Eliminating the Main Window with its menus integrated intothe PIXCI Image Viewer window, (c) Configuring theShortcuts and/or Capture & Adjust features to be attached tothe PIXCI Image Viewer window rather than detached in theirown windows, (d) Selecting whether the Shortcuts and/orCapture & Adjust features appear automatically, or onlywhen:
As three of the most commonly used operations, the Snap, Live, and UnLive are also available in the Shortcuts Toolbar, astwo shortcuts with a graphic of camera; one for snap and the otherfor live/unlive. The Shortcuts also allow changing the currentframe buffer, as four shortcuts with the graphic of a book's pages;switch to the first frame buffer, to the next frame buffer (e.g.current buffer +1), to the previous frame buffer (e.g. currentbuffer -1), and to the last frame buffer. The relative position ofthese shortcuts changes depending on whether the Shortcuts Toolbaris standalone window or within the PIXCI Image Viewer window,and depending on the graphic display resolution and size of thewindows; hovering the mouse over the shortcuts will explain the useof each.
