Blackgold Drivers for 36xx Series Cards

Wow it's been so long since I made a post, I need to get back into it all, but as a quick starter I thought I would share something with my fellow BlackGold TV Tuner owners. At some point over the last year or so BlackGold's support page has had dead links for it's downloads. I emailed them and they reckon it will be fixed 'soon' and emailed me some drivers. In the meantime I have uploaded them to my server for you all to use as you need. These are great cards for use with TVHeadend, Emby, Plex and so forth, it's a shame they're not getting any love from the manufacturers at the moment.

Update July 2022: The Blackgold site has shutdown and nothing remains of them beyond whatever was captured by archive.org's waybackmachine. I've duplicated their driver page table below and linked to all the drivers I had from before. If you have one of the missing files and can add to this collection please let me know so we can help everyone access them.

Waybackmachine link to their support page, some of the driver links may work but most are dead now as they were not captured.
