This white paper provides guidelines to independent hardware vendors (IHV) for implementing the SourceType XML element that is used in the Windows Protected Broadcast Driver Architecture (PBDA). In Windows 7, PBDA is supported by Windows Media Center.
Windows Media Center queries the SourceType XML data from PBDA-compatible devices, such as digital tuners and recorders. By using this data, Windows Media Center can configure the device for media reception and playback. By supporting the SourceType XML element, IHVs provide an integrated solution for configuring their digital tuner by using Windows Media Center.
This information applies to the Windows 7 operating system.
