[SOLVED] Sky Star USB Plus on Windows Server 2008 x64

I found the list of DLL & drivers to move from Vista x64 to Windows Server 2008 x64.
The list of the file with all information is available at MSFN forum

It’s a script based file available at RapidShare

Here is the instruction:

  1. Decompress all files inside C:\bdaforserver on Windows Vista x64 and Windows Server 2008 x64
  2. On Vista machine, run “C:\bdaforserver\Setup For x64\Get BDA Vista Files.bat” to copy the following files to the “C:\bdaforserver\Source\x64” folder:



  3. On Windows Server 2008 x64, run the “C:\bdaforserver\Setup For x64\Setup BDA.bat” to install all files and register the DLLs and drivers.
  4. Restart the server and press CANCEL to the “Add new hardware” wizard.
  5. Restart the server again
  6. Install the following codecs to be able to see all channels:

    MPEG 2 – Cyberlink Mpeg2 Decoder Pack
    MPEG 4 – CoreAVC H.264 video decoder

  7. Install DVB Dream as satellite player
  8. Install V-Plug to get all channels visible
  9. Install PowerInstall Softcam Updater to update the required keys

Japanese Firm Demonstrates Car That Runs On Water!

If you’re tired of spending money like water on gas, maybe you’d just rather spend money on water, period.

That’s what you’ll be doing if a Japanese firm has its way.

A company called Genepax, dedicated to finding ways to turn water into power, has unveiled what it calls the first practical car to run solely on H20. The firm claims putting just a litre of water from any source – tap, rain or river – is enough to keep its automobile going for 60 minutes at a respectable speed of 80 kilometres an hour.

And forget about finding a gas station when you’re running on empty. “The car will continue to run as long as you have a bottle of water to top up from time to time,” Genepax CEO Kiyoshi Hirasawa told a local Japanese broadcaster after demonstrating the test vehicle in Osaka. “It does not require you to build up an infrastructure to recharge your batteries, which is usually the case for most electric cars.”

According to the company, the water gets poured into a tank at the back of the car and uses a generator to break it down and convert it to electrical power. It’s a completely different approach from the big automakers, who are looking at fuel cells that run on hydrogen as the next power source. Ironically, they emit water from the exhaust, not use it to run the vehicle.

Genepax can’t say yet when you’ll be taking one of their cars for a spin but like all these future fuels, their arrival seems to be off in the distance. They’ve just applied for a patent on the system and can’t say when – or if – it will ever actually hit the showrooms.

But they’re in talks with Japanese automakers about the idea and hope it will one day water down your need to ever visit a gas station – with its non-stop climbing prices – again.

Concentrator Photovoltaic – 230 watts per cm2

IBM scientists are using a large lens to concentrate the Sun’s power, capturing a record 230 watts onto a centimeter square solar cell, in a technology known as concentrator photovoltaics, or CPV. That energy is then converted into 70 watts of usable electrical power, about five times the electrical power density generated by typical cells using CPV technology in solar farms.
