DriverGuide maintains an extensive archive of Windows drivers available for free download. We employ a team from around the world which adds hundreds of new drivers to our site every day. How to Install Drivers Once you download your new driver, then you need to install it. To install a driver in Windows, you will need to use a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.
Many device drivers are not updated through the Microsoft Windows Update service. If you are having trouble finding the right driver, stop searching and fix driver problems faster with the Automatic Driver Update Utility. Automatic updates could save you hours of time.
The Driver Update Utility automatically finds, downloads and installs the right driver for your hardware and operating system. It will Update all of your drivers in just a few clicks, and even backup your drivers before making any changes.
Many computer problems are caused by missing or outdated device drivers, especially in Windows 11. If your desktop or laptop is running slow, or keeps crashing or hanging, there is a good chance that updating your drivers will fix the problem.
The Kodicom 4400R (or KMC-4400R) is a PCI interface card with 4 separate video capture ICs, handling 16 separate composite video (CVBS) inputs. This makes it ideal for Digital Video Recorder (DVR) projects that require inputs from 16 cameras. The video capture ICs (chips) used are of the Fusion 878A type from Conexant. These are commonly referred to by the older designation Bt878 so they use the bttv driver in the Linux kernel.
There is also a card from Kodicom called the Kodicom 8800R (or KMC-8800) which has 8 capture chips. The Kodicom 4400R is very different in operation so the driver for it cannot be used with the 8800. There are many clones of both the 4400R and the 8800 out there including cards with references like SK-2003. Because the 4400R uses standard components they should work with the 4400R driver if they appear identical to the 4400R in appearance.
The kernel is able to work with this card from version 2.6.12-6 onwards and is in the 2.6.13 kernel baseline. The driver treats one of the bt878A chips as the "master", and the other three as "slaves". To do this, two separate card types are used. Card 132 in the bttv cardlist is for the "master", and card 133 is for the slave. Unfortunately, at this time there is no automatic detection of this card, so the driver must be set to recognise the cards manually.
When the driver is installed, the "master" capture IC is the second controller detected, so the best way to install the driver is as a module with modprobe (or insmod) although it is possible to define module parameters at startup. For automatic loading at startup manually add the bttv module to the list of kernel modules loaded on boot (e.g in sysconfig), and add the options below to your modprobe config (e.g in modprobe.d or modprobe.conf)
The 4400R is unusual in that it is supplied with a video out connection on the card. This is a phono connector unlike the BNC connectors for video inputs. Any of the possible 16 video inputs can be fed to this output. The operation of this is using the crosspoint switch chip that the card is fitted with. Currently there is no method of setting which output it is connected to in the driver. Note that this card is often described as having one audio input but this is not the case, the phono connector (often red in colour) is for video output.
There are only 4 physical Fusion 878A (commonly known as Bt878A) controller chips on the board, and with the Linux bttv driver under V4L they are labelled as /dev/video0 through /dev/video3 if it is the only capture card. The interesting part of the system is that any of the 16 cameras (Cam0 - Cam15) can be connected to any of the 4 controllers (/dev/video0 - /dev/video3). This is achieved by the use of a crosspoint video switch (CD22M3494MQ chip) on the board. This chip has got a 4-bit X address (X0 - X15) to reference any of the 16 inputs to the card and a 3-bit Y address (Y0 - Y7) which are under the control of GPIO pins on the master 878A chip. For this reason the driver of all four cards references the master device. Only four outputs (Y0 - Y3) are needed from the crosspoint switch and these connect to the MUX0 (and MUX1) input of the four 878A chips. The Y4 output is connected to the video output connector making it possible to view any input on the video output connector. However that is not currently under software control from the Linux bttv driver. By default, at initialisation, the driver connects Cam0 to /dev/video0, Cam1 to /dev/video1, etc. so that the four BNC connectors on the card itself are each connected to a different 878A device. This would allow for each of these channels to record at the full rate (25fps for PAL, 30fps for NTSC).
Requests to change input channels are in the range 0 to 15 and can be addressed to the device you want that channel to connect to. The driver automatically disconnects the previous input and connects the new channel as input to the chip addressed. Therefore it is possible to have all four devices (/dev/video0 - /dev/video3) connnected to the same input! It is important that two inputs are not fed to the same output at the one time and this prevents this. This arrangement also means that it is easier to have different capture rates with this card if fewer than all 16 inputs are used.
This card makes use of four LM1881 chips that determine which is odd and which are the even lines from the frame. There is one for each 878A and the state of the odd/even line output can be read from GPIO-16 although no use of this is made in the Linux driver.
There is also an LED beside each 878A which is driven from GPIO-23 pin. Again the Linux driver does not currently use the LED but it may use it to indicate which is the master 878A at initialisation at some stage in the future.
By default, the driver "connects" Cam0 - 3 to /dev/video0 - /dev/video3, but by default xawtv re-initializes whatever controller it is using to Cam0, so this second instance gives you a blank / blue screen. Now "right click" on the picture and select "Composite3". The picture from Cam3 should appear.
Drivers are actually quite easy to come by for this card. It works very well in Linux with Zoneminder as the CCTV software. If you want a windows solution, the best bet is to goto and get in contact with their sales department. They sell Diginet 5.2 software with drivers for $99.00 That is the very software that your card was actually meant for as well. If you are running Windows 7, you will need Diginet 5.3. I do not know the price for that version as I have never used it before.
Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Kodicom Co., Ltd Graphics Card device drivers, we highly recommend downloading the DriverDoc driver update tool [Download DriverDoc - Product by Solvusoft]. DriverDoc automatically downloads and updates your KMC-4400R driver, ensuring you are installing the correct version for your operating system.
KMC-4400R errors are often caused by viruses of outdated and corrupted device drivers. Device drivers fail intermittently and inexplicably without any apparent reason. The positive aspect is that once you update your Graphics Card's driver it will stop crashing.
It can seem impossible to find the right KMC-4400R driver directly on the Kodicom Co., Ltd's or related manufacturer's website for your Graphics Card. You might be a PC veteran, but locating, installing, and manually upgrading KMC-4400R drivers can still take a long time and totally frustrate you. An improper driver download can lead to issues with software and harm the functionality of the computer.
Using a driver updating program can allow drivers to update without difficulty, so we Driver update utilities ensure you have correct drivers that are compatible with your hardware, it also guarantees that there is a backup of current drivers before any software/hardware changes are made. Backing up your drivers provides you with the security of knowing that you can rollback any driver to a previous version if something goes wrong.
your problem is most likely your video card. As you have found out so far with AMD, Kodicom is very picky as to what hardware it works with. It seems to work the best with the ATI Radeon video cards. ( i would recommend the 7500 or above) the cards tend to not like the NVidia cards. If you already have a Radeon card, make sure you download the latest driver from ATI's website.
in my practice with amd works only 4.11 (with drivers dated 2002 if I remember right). I was unable to get 4.12 working. 4.13 works ok on intel mashines, but there are no picture on AMD's (there are only picture in motion calibration setup mode)
To connect your computer to a VE.Bus product (Multis, Quattros and Inverters), you need a driver for MK2-USB (ASS030130000) / MK3-USB (ASS030140000) and an RJ45 UTP cable (ASS030064xxx and ASS030065xxx).
To install the MK2-USB / MK3-USB driver on a computer without internet, first download the MK2-USB / MK3-USB driver using VEConfig3 and install it by selecting the menu Special -> USB Drivers. Only afterwards connect the MK2-USB / MK3-USB to your computer for the first time. 2b1af7f3a8
