The Humax PVR9200T is a pretty good Freeview/digital terrestrial personal video recorder. I’ve had mine for a few years now. Over time, the disk fills up with some programmes you want to keep. It’s possible to copy recorded programmes from the box to your computer, over USB.
Unfortunately the supplied eLinker software is not highly-regarded. As a result some replacements have been written, such as Humax Media Controller. However, the driver supplied only works on 32–bit Windows.
The USB library and driver used are a Win32 port of libusb, a driver which makes it possible to write your USB transfers fully in user-mode. A later version (0.1.12.2) has both 32– and 64–bit versions of the driver. However, the updated driver doesn’t work with the libusb0.dll supplied with Media Controller 1.05, and the program won’t run if you overwrite it with the new DLL.
I’ve rebuilt the new DLL so it will work with the program. The attached ZIP file contains the new version and the new drivers. To use, extract the contents of the folder. Copy the libusb0.dll in the top-level folder to the Humax Media Controller folder, overwriting the current version. Then, use Update Driver in Device Manager to install the driver from the Driver folder.
Windows Vista introduced a driver signing requirement for x64, and this driver isn’t signed. To get it to load on Windows Vista and Windows 7, reboot, and press F8 until the boot menu appears. From this menu, select Disable Driver Signature Enforcement, then continue to boot normally.
Hopefully this will help other people with the x64 versions of Windows!
