Turn off UAC*
Install DVBLink server* (DVBLinkServer.msi)
Install DVBLink for DVBDream* (DVBDreamBridgeSetup.exe)
So, there was a total of three reboots while installing.
I tried to get it going on 32 bit Vista, but Media Center would not cooperate, and when I tried bringing up DVBDream, it choked with access error violation. I deinstalled their programs, but to get DVBDream to work, I had to delete its folder and reinstall it. I'm going to try it again this week...I updated Windows files after this clean install Sunday.
My OEM HP computer came with Vista Home Premium, but when I did the clean install recently, I used a DELL re-installation DVD with its Home Premium 32 bit (SP1). DVBLink works in conjunction with Media Center TV Pack, but Microsoft only released this to OEMs, if they choose to install it.
Microsoft had a February 2009 Cumulative Update for Media Center TV Pack for Windows Vista (Article ID: 958653), but Microsoft will not all this update to be installed on computer.
Like I said, I'm going to try it again to install DVBLink and attempt to configure Media Center. If this does not work, then I'm going to look at this web page
and see if I can make it go...note when they say, "Digital Video Broadcasting – Satellite (DVB-S) free-to-air satellite standards in Europe."
1. Live in Europe or USA?
2. Did you get Media Center to work at any time?
3. Were you able to configure Media Center?
