Hey there Glenn n Stu, great to see you two are still here
I haven't been back for a while, as I've been busy :(.
But it's cool that MSI are working on their version of WinDVR.
As for the latest MSIPVR being just another version of WinDVR 3, yes it is. However, WinDVR3 does not seem to have the streaming option, which MSIPVR seems to have. Or is there an add on for it? :S.
In either case, I just tried it out with my TV@nywhere (yes, it's the original one:(...) and I seem to have issues with it :(.
The first thing I get in the setup box is that it's an NTSC-M card, so I changed this to PAL-B and the picture stops being green and grey, i.e. blue picture.
I then set everything else like it should be but when I get to the channel scanning section, I can't scan the channels. When I click on auto scan, it just roams through everything quickly with no results.
When I tried the WinDVR 3 trial version, when I tried to scan the channels, it looked as if it was scanning for the channels, however, it never came up with ANY results, so I ended up with 100+ blue channels :p.
What MSIPVR seems to have, that WinDVR didn't, is also the ability to type in one's own channel frequency keys. I tried doing that too, but MSIPVR didn't seem to respond to any of them. And even after having input e.g. 3 to test it, after restarting MSIPVR, the channels aren't there anymore :S. It's as if they didn't save. Then when I tried to press channel up and down, it'd take me to the channel scan window instead of actually going up and down.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or if it's because the latest MSIPVR cannot coexist with my existing one. That is to say, I still have MSIPVR 2 installed and that still works. I also tried loading the WinDVR.chan list into it with no luck what so ever. But with the WinDVR.chan, I could at least "change channels" although they were all blue. The sound wasn't there either.
And yeah, I also tried scanning with freescan ticked, as usual. Rather strange I must say.
This new piece of software SHOULD be backwards compatible right, i.e. work with the older TV@nywhere.
In either case, I guess the above answer to this question will be the answer to the result hehe.
I guess that's my feedback for now:).
But again, it's really awesome that you're all still working on the software and so forth for this piece of hardware.
I really hope that one of these days, we can get a really nice working driver or alternative to this and be able to capture in the excellent quality that this card seems to be capable of
