Get complete control over your TV-Tuner!
ChrisTV PVR Professional is a personal video recorder that can record from TV tuners, as well as any video capture source connected to the PC—such as a DV Camcorder.
Installation is fairly easy, and you’re automatically taken to the configuration tool that detects and configures your TV Tuner’s audio and video and starts a channel detection routine. It detects channels with no trouble, and you can add channels if any are missed. The skinnable interface is slick and the controls are very easy to use. Video can be viewed in two modes: commonly used overlay, or the newer and better VMR9. You can watch a 5 x 5 channel preview grid, and there is a zoom function too.
ChrisTV can be used with both internal and external USB TV tuners and you can use up to four of them simultaneously. You can record in MPEG1 / 2, as well as AVI with compression. You can use preset recording profiles or even save custom recording profiles for use later. Time-shift and scheduling is present, and you can use these in conjunction with a third party Electronic Program Guide. You can use image processing filters to add effects.
