BDA is the native windows digital tuner capture API that exists on any
windows system, and any user with a digital tuner installed on a
windows box would have support for their tuners.  DVBLink is a
for-purchase third party product that nearly nobody will have.
There's no compelling reason to support the latter over the former.
