Updated AVerMedia TV tuner driver now available to fix Digital Audio Service errors

A couple of months ago, I posted an item about Digital Audio Service errors that can be caused with Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 systems that have AVerMedia TV tuners.

Last week, a representative from AVerMedia posted a comment on that blog post that I wanted to make sure everyone saw, so I decided to create a new post with this information. In this blog comment, the AVerMedia representative indicated that their company has developed a new TV tuner driver and gotten Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) certification for it. AVerMedia has verified that this new driver fixes the Digital Audio Service overlay on systems that have the affected AVerMedia TV tuner(s) installed, and we have also seen good results with this driver in our test lab.

I have not been able to find this new drive on the AVerMedia web site yet, but you can email the AVerMedia representative who posted the comment on my blog using the address felixk@aver.com to request a copy of this driver. I am hoping that they will make this driver available on their web site soon so that it will be easier for folks to find.

Note - if you are seeing Digital Audio Service overlays and your system does not have an AVerMedia tuner, you can find other Digital Audio Service troubleshooting suggestions at the following locations:
