How to Install MonsterTV HDUS on Windows 7 with TVTest
MonsterTV HDUS is a digital TV tuner that can receive terrestrial and satellite broadcasts in Japan. It can also decrypt scrambled channels with a B-CAS card. To use it on Windows 7, you need to install a modified driver and a software called TVTest. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
Download and install Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 from here. This is required for BonDriver_nnb, which is a driver wrapper for TVTest.
Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Runtime from here. This is required for TVTest and other plugins.
Download MTVHD-Series-CURRENT-20091113.zip from here. This is a package that contains the modified driver, TVTest, TVRock (a recording scheduler), and other tools. Extract the zip file to a folder of your choice.
Run Installer.cmd in the Installer folder. Choose HDUS as the model and follow the instructions. The installer will download and extract the necessary files and replace some of them with modified versions. It will also install Spinel (a server that allows multiple applications to access the tuner) and ask you how many tuners you have. You may encounter some errors during the installation, but you can ignore them.
Connect your MonsterTV HDUS to your PC. The driver installation should complete automatically. If not, open Device Manager and update the drivers manually by pointing to the Driver_64bit folder in the 091110_Win7_Driver folder.
Run TVTest.exe in the TVTest folder. Choose VMR9 as the renderer and None as the card reader. Click on the Settings button on the left and scan for channels. You can also enable the remote control and change the capture settings if you want.
Enjoy watching and recording digital TV on your PC!
