 Prof Drivers Setup from the Inf-file

  In Windows, oficially, it is allowed to install drivers only using the inf-files. All other ways are deemed non-official and Microsoft company, Windows developer,  does not guarantee the proper operation of  non-official "autoinstallers", as well as there is no guarantee that such a software will not harm the system integrity or Windows registry.

Prof Tuners Group Ltd firmly recommend you to use only inf-files for the Prof. production drivers installation.

Note 1: We only accept the support requests for the latest software and drivers versions.

Note 2: In fact, in most cases our Users ask us standard questions. Here you will find the answers:

Qestion 1. Having switched on the IP DATA, I started DVBDream/AltDVB/ProgDVB/ etc. Looking at  the picture I saw that it is glitching.
Answer:
Building “a graph” for their operation, BDA-drivers fully use the DVB-card resources. It is impossible to run two applications with the same DVB-card simultaneously. When you use TV-utilities, the IP DATA should be closed.

Qestion 2: BSOD message appears (BSOD).
Answer: Once or twice a month, approximately, Users may got BSOD message at the PC. Blue Screen may be caused by many different reasons. The hardware conflicts are most widely spread. The second  type is device drivers conflicts. The third conflict type is filter, decoder errors, and system errors. Errors in H.264 stream can also make a hardware decoder “glitch” and result in BSOD. And even when an error (number, address, and library) is determined, it is sometimes difficult to obtain the certain reason of critical error.

Software of  PTG Engine set,  when it is being operated, does not provoke BSOD.  In the case of BSOD, the best action is to determine the real reason of an error, referring to Microsoft documentation. BSOD is not a reason, just a consequence . If BSOD takes place during the DVB-card driver installation, then your card is conflicting with some other hardware installed at your computer or there is a software conflict with previous driver which has not been specially uninstalled(this means that Windows tries to initialize the new driver for the device, which has another driver already initialized. In such a situation, BSOD arise as well).

Internet Forums and Communities

PTG company does not have a forum and we do not plan to organize it. We release our equipment on a basis of "It simply works, and that’s all!" principle. We have nothing to hide about our production and you are free to discuss it on any forum available for you. Meanwhile, we have no opportunity to permanently moderate the forum, leaving only positive messages and deleting the ones from unsatisfied clients which will always exist, disregarding the quality of the product.

Of course, we understand that the process of satellite receiver equipment(antenna, Diseq-switch, rotor, converter and others) and PC software(Operational systems, codecs, programs, drivers and others) installation and setup will always arouse additional questions. It is impossible to provide instructions "for all ocasions", so we would like to recommend you participating in the following satellite Internet-communities to enrich your knowledge, and find the required information.
