I have been using
DVBLogic for a while already which allows me to watch live TV sourcing from the
Ziggo cable network (DVB-C) in The Netherlands in one of their clients like Windows Media Center, Windows Phone app, Android app, IOS app or through any DLNA client. Works out great. I recently decided to add more tuners to my setup. After some research I read good things about a German company called
Digital Devices which offers DVB-C (cable) and DVB-S (satellite) tuner cards. After
comparing their offerings, I chose to go with a
Cine CT V6 DuoFlex CT quad tuner DVB-C PCI Express card. After ordering through their webshop and transfering the money by international bank transfer, the next day I already received a notification from Digital Devices that the order was being shipped. Three working days later the mailman arrived at my doorstep with the package.
The documentation that comes with the card and which is provided on their website is a bit confusing. Also because they offer several products which are all a little bit different. Below I will outline the exact steps to take to install this quad tuner card (other cards should have the same steps) on a Windows 2008 R2 x64 (steps for Windows Server 2012 are similar) server and use it with DVBLogic v4.5.
Also make sure you have the Desktop Experience feature
enabled within Windows 2008R2 or Windows Server 2012. You can enable
this by running the following PowerShell command:Add-WindowsFeature Desktop-ExperienceFor Windows Server 2012 R2 instead you need to activate the "Media Foundation" feature using the following PowerShell command:Add-WindowsFeature Server-Media-Foundation
