Comments, suggestions, patchs , success stories, are
very welcome. If you have some hardware info about the
unsupported Bt8xx based capture cards, Or how to autodetect
a non-autodetected card, send them.
Please Be sure to read all
the FAQ to make sure your question
is not already answered there before mailing yours,
because due to the huge amount of mails i am receiving
, i first answer all the questions that are not answered
in the FAQ, and then, if time allows, all the other
ones. Don't worry: All mails are read.
Also, first try to post your problem to
the public forums devoted to this driver you can find
on the sourceforge
site , perhaps some users of the btwincap driver
already have the answer or have found the solution to
the problems you could be experiencing...
Be sure, if you do mail me, at least,
mention the driver version you are using and the OS
you are using (WinME, Win98Se, Win2000 or WinXP). Else,
I won't be able to help you. Keep in mind that I just
own one of the supported cards (an Aimlabs VHX), so,
the information you are giving me is the only thing
i can use to try to add support to unknown cards and
fix bugs you find. So, if in doubt, just send all the
information you can collect - And just a quick note:
Your card drivers are useless to me.
Now, if you need support for a new card,
or audio selection is not working with your card, you
can use the Custom card template
option of the driver to make your card work with the
driver. The only requirement is that it is a Bt848/Bt878
based card, you have the original drivers and applications
bundled with your card (for Win95/Win98/WinMe), and
you have a working copy of Win95/98/Me. Please read
that section and try to create a custom template before
asking for support for a new card. I can't add support
for your card if you don't have the technical details
needed and/or i don't own that piece of hardware.
Regarding the IR controls some cards do
have, if yours seems not to be working (try Girder to
test it), you can , using the btspy tool "Peeker"
tool, try to determine the GPOE and GPDATA values for
each key of the IR control, and , also note if the key
value remains there even if you release the key, or
if the value depends on the key pressed or depressed.
Please do not ask me to add support for a new IR control
if you don't have the above information. I simply can't
do it without at least that information.
If you still want to mail me, send it
