View Full Version : BTV CPU useage
I'm using about 50-60% CPU when watching TV, and about 85% when recording. Is this normal? I bought the PVR-150 bc I thought CPU usage would be much lower.

Are you using Overlay or 3D mode for Playback? 3D uses more CPU, so I changed to Overlay and it uses less than 20% CPU. Recording uses less than 5% when I close Video window.

I use about 17% CPU when recording 3 shows with BM in the background. If I watch, it goes into the mid 20s. 50%-60% is pretty high for a hardware encoding card. Are you running anything else?
