Good free DVB software wanted!
#1
Discovered lately SmartDVB; it seemed a good software - indeed, I recorded few HD films with no problems; but lately, it stops about one hour after I open it... as I use it mainly to record HDTV films not on BD, I MUST find a decent alternative...

Tried also SychboPVR: wonderful graphic, but fewer options, and now it seems to not work well...

Any other one?!?

Ehm... it seems this is not a DVB TV software, nor is free... what I need is a software where I could actually see and record DVB TV broadcasting, compatible with both MPEG2 and AVC.

Sorry, but a screen capture software is not what I need... just a simple, free, program to watch and record digital TV using my PCI DVB card... light and selfcontained will be better, but open to other solutions... I tried many, but none seemed to works well, or have the settings I want...

Sorry, I was just trying to help, LOL.

There HAS to be something out there you can use.

Not free but worth a look anyways.

Fraps is just another screen-capture software ( a very good one that I use frequently) and Andrea states in post#5 that he's not looking for that kind of software but, rather, for card-capture software...

Jerry, you are wrong, too! Tongue The fact my capture card is also a DVB card is purely coincidental... I use VirtualDub as capture card - the best so far! - but I was struggling to find out a good software to see and record DTV in DVB standard... sadly, it seems the problem lies not (only) in the software, but in the signal strenght of my antenna... I mean, in SD I have 100% quality - and SD recording is not a problem - while in HD I have only around 70%, which seems to be not always enough to prevent freezes, blockings etc.
So, for the moment, I stick with the program I'm using, we'll see if the antenna signal could be improved... at the end, real non-upscaled movies not no BD on FTA is quite rare these days!
