It doesn’t work in Australia, and neither do any of the other TiVo-ish gadgets. It’s done it largely by throwing monstrously powerful hardware at the problem, but never mind. The nine-key number pad moves the mouse pointer, with a couple of nearby keys doing left and right mouse button duty and the 5 key for locked-left-button click-and-drag purposes. This new version can be installed on Mac At the moment, in US dollars, I think that’s about a nickel. Appropriately reference to source and proper acknowledgement therein are also required, such as to make a statement “AVerMedia is the registered trademark of AVerMedia Technologies Inc.

Once you find the on-disc documentation, though, it’s all simple enough to follow. An hour of frustration and phone calls and Web surfing, for someone who thought that a VCR should work like a VCR, not like the Marquis de Sade’s own intelligence test.

The work of ten tvvphone98. Within these limitations, though, the TVPhone98 almost qualifies as elegant, and it’s good value for money.

It also records live shows while you’re watching them. Never mind capacity – most consumer hard tvxapture98 can’t even move data that fast! The TVPhone supports every TV standard and frequency in the world – including stereo sound, if it’s available – so the system ought to work anywhere.

Even when it’s enclosed in a metal case, a PC and its external cables commonly emit enough electro-magnetic radiation EMR to create noticeable noise.

If you’re a power Teletext user, you’ll probably love this software. Raw, uncompressed video data is gigantic. Doing video on Tvohone98 used to be absolutely bloomin’ excruciating.

The TiVo can even make guesses about shows you might like to see, based on what avernedia told it about other shows with the simple “thumbs up” and “thumbs vaermedia buttons. This means you can press an “instant replay” button to move back in time, or pause live television – the TiVo just goes on recording, and you can watch what it’s already recorded from any point, even as the TiVo adds more to the end of the recording.


If something that digitises video and saves it onto a computer’s hard drive is a Video Cassette Recorder, then I suppose a Zip drive qualifies as a Punched Card Reader.

Forget integrated TV guides and cunning program-type analysis, and also forget stand-alone convenience. Once you’ve got the TVPhone installed, it’s got an “autoscan” mode that’ll sweep through the most likely TV channel frequencies and store whatever channels it finds.

If you’ve got a video card with TV output, though, you’ll probably be able to use tvcaptjre98 as normal. The autoscan’s likely to put channels on weird and wonderful numbers, and detect a few white-noise channels as well; it’s easy to weed out the duds and remap the real ones to the right numbers.

There doesn’t seem to be a limit to how many recordings you can set up, so you could easily harvest every soap opera on a channel for months on end, assuming you had enough disk space.

It does mention an on-disc manual you’re supposed to be able to access from the main software CD’s default install menu, but there’s no such option. Today, things have changed.

What you get The TVPhone98 package gives you the card itself, the remote control, a couple of software CDs, a slim manual, a microphone, an FM antenna, an IR receiver cable for the remote, and a short audio lead so you can connect the TVPhone’s audio out to your sound card’s input.


You can easily capture still images as well as video clips, but the image pauses for a moment when you hit the capture button. Now the remote behaves like a remote. EMR drops off with the square of the distance, so you don’t have to move an indoor antenna very far from most PCs to get a better picture.

However, unauthorized use of this company’s software for commercial purposes is prohibited. It’s done it largely by throwing monstrously powerful hardware at the problem, but never mind. To store lots of video, you need lots of disk space – but with hard disk space now costing about one Australian cent per megabyte, lots of disk space is something that the average consumer can easily acquire.

It records these “suggestions” of its own accord, when it’s got nothing else to do.

The continued use of this website will mean user accept any change. If you’re in the USA, in one of the regions where it works. The lockout can be permanent, or set to only happen at particular times, and there is of course password protection that’ll almost certainly stop any children under the age of eight.

This means you can use a plain indoor antenna, or an outdoor antenna, or a cable TV box with an “aerial” output. The tuner isn’t capable of receiving more than one channel at a time, so it just looks at each one for a moment playing the sound, as wellthen freeze-frames it and moves on to the next square and channel.

You press play, and it plays back whatever was recorded last; a simple file requestor lets you pick what recording to play.
