Re: HD capture through "analog hole"?

Well, with an economy like ours, it's gonna be tough to pay a half a dozen times for the same thing over and over again. I just don't see the advantage of DRM in that regard. I mean, it's nice, but...

Re: ShowSqueezed WMVs look too funny on PS3.

No, these are standard 4:3 recordings. However, since I have my PS3 hooked up via HDMI on my 32" JVC, it seems like instead of displaying at the shows' native 4:3 with the normal letterboxing, it...

ShowSqueezed WMVs look too funny on PS3.

I was attempting to ShowSqueeze a few BTV recordings to WMV, and they looked like they did the job, and went through TVersity okay. However, when they played back on my PS3, they looked all funny,...

Screen is blank under 64-bit Vista BTV

I installed BTV 4.7 under Vista Ultimate x64, and it was set up correctly in the setup wizard, however, when I go to watch TV in BTV under the ViewScape, the TV display is completely blank, even tho...

Re: HD capture through "analog hole"?

You could always grab that DVI-HDMI cable to handshake the video card from your HTPC into an HDTV (hopefully a 1080p, since 720p will interlace a lot on you), that's another way to get BTV and HD...

Desktop and Laptop running BTV, would these signal setups be best?

Here's the scoop... Right now, I have a desktop running Vista Ultimate x64 with a WinTV-HVR-1800 with FM, OTA HD, and Set-top Box Digital Cable running, and seems to run rather strong on there, and...

Re: Apple TV a good BTV extender?

Right, unlike the X360 being an extender for Microsoft's Media Center, there is no official extender for SnapStream and/or BTV as of yet... Also, I'd like to think that with the H.264 addon for...

Re: Vista + IR Blaster

Pfft, yeah... Seems like we'd be best off watching standard cable on a PC if it's gonna wind up being like that... Seems like Microsoft just doesn't want Hauppauge to have the right drivers for...

Re: Digital transition in 2009: what does it mean for regular analog cable?

Well, now that you mention callsigns, I'm gonna make things simple as far as what I'm able to get from my Philips antenna when it's at its strongest, and what my RCA Terrestrial antenna can pick up...

Re: Digital transition in 2009: what does it mean for regular analog cable?

Yeah, I think my local FOX station went almost all digital now. However, there are still some lower frequency stations around here, and hopefully those will change in due time. ABC and NBC seem to...

Re: 97-100% CPU watching HD and only 4% to record HD

I believe you should read his siggy for that info.

Anyway, judging by your specs, I'd say that having a single core CPU, with today's HTPC hardware, can be a bit more stressful, as most...

Re: Beyond TV and QAM

Interesting... I'm wondering if HDHomeRun would be equally as successful with Vista Media Center at all...or if M$ ruled out QAM altogether? I mean, if I'm gonna go through that, I might as well...

Re: Beyond TV and QAM

Probably SnapStream will offer some firmware updates/version updates to bring QAM support up and running for existing licenses? That would be nice. Just better hope that Microsoft will do the same...

Re: Xbox 360 and Media Center

Yeah, and you'd risk getting an RRoD if you tried streaming content long enough, especially HDTV content.

Re: Beyond TV and QAM

Shame that HDHomeRun got BTV support exclusively. Hauppauge's HD Tuners are equally as capable, imho, especially the HVR-1800 which I have (and the upcoming HVR-950 which I am hooking up to my...

Re: Comcast QAM Need to Create lineup?

Well, I already have an HD STB from Cox already, even tho it's on the analog input (wish that Hauppauge would get that component-based tuner rolling already). However, I'm guessing that having...

Re: Zune sync without conversion?

I hear that the 80GB Zune has even DVR-MS support, too now. Which is good for Media Center recordings, just so long as you are running either Home Premium or Ultimate Vista. Whether it can do...

Re: Digital transition in 2009: what does it mean for regular analog cable?

True, but at least around here, I can actually get more local stations over QAM than ATSC, surprisingly. I mean, jeez... Very disappointing for a 50dB indoor antenna that it can't even pick up more...

I take it that H.264 ShowSqueeze is Zune compatible as well as iPod?

Even tho I would consider an iPod Video for watching recorded TV, I'd like to think that the Zune would probably be more native to Windows-based TV recordings. However, would the same H.264...

Re: Digital transition in 2009: what does it mean for regular analog cable?

Well, it's a little stronger than the RCA Terrestrial HD Antenna that I have, but for some strange reason, the Philips doesn't pick up the same channels that the RCA does, unfortunately... I tried...

Don't you hate this about HDTV on Vista MC?

Re: HDTV in-the-clear over analog cable

Right, I know that HD HomeRun does QAM, but on the hardware end, the HVR-1600/1800 is known for this also with WinTV 6 application. Thought that this would support BTV as well.

Re: HDTV in-the-clear over analog cable

Glad that BTV supports it with third-party plugins. However, I still don't know what Vista doesn't want to support it with its own Media Center? Oh, is it because Microsoft is a fan of DRM all of...
