ProgDVB Standard Edition (free) doesn’t support HDTV, only the Professional one but we need to pay for it.
You can use all base functions of ProgDVB free of charge without restrictions in ProgDVB Standart edition. Some additional functions, such as “Picture in a picture”(only in 5.x), AVC,H.264 and DVB-S2 support, work with several audio streams and some other, are available in ProgDVB Professional only.
So, I moved to DVB Dream that support HDTV and it’s full freeware.
Remember to install all required file to use the decoder correctly:
- c:\Program Files\TechniSat DVB\bin\Sky2PCAVSrc.ax
HDTV requres a specific codec to decode the MPEG4 AVC / H.264 stream so, according to DVB Dream codec test: FFDShow is the best solution.
Installation check list:
- DVB Dream (DVBSkyStar mirror)
- A/V codec FFDShow codec
- V-Plug plugin into C:\dvbdream\Plugins\pip00
- PowerInstall Key Updater to get latest keys
It’s worked really good, so I left ProgDVB and move to DVB Dream! 🙂
