tv recording
> I have a MSI TV@NYWHERE PLUS tv tuner card. My question is,is there a tv program that I can use to record my shows? It works on Windows but I want to stay away from Window,if possible.

i use Kaffeine, the KDE mediaplayer. it works admirably well as a dvb-t tv, and offers some nice options like instant recording, scheduled recording, etc.

check it out, it's really rather good.

you might also want to check out "maxemum tv guide" (that's not a typo, the author spells it funny). it's an absolutely outstanding tv-guide application, works with xmltv, easily the best tv-guide i've ever used.

tv recording
I downloaded kaffeine but there's no tv. Just for cd & dvd. I do have tvtime but it doesn't record shows. And maxemumm doesn't work either. I installed it but when I go to find it I get a 'not installed'.

Maxemum,I installed but when goto look for it I get 'not installed'

damnit, i should never post when i am ill, i misread your reply.

so, you have it all working with tv-time, and it's displaying your channels correctly?

I am using the composite part of my tv tuner card because the cable guy broke the cable input. The composite works good(I have the cable box fed thru my vcr to the composite input on the tv tuner card).but I can't get tvtime to record.I don't know if it is suppose to.Is there something I'm missing?

zidane_tribal 09-28-2009 06:48 AM

aaah, now i see, i thought you were using the cable port.

unfortunately, tvtime does not offer any recording functionality. you really want to look at something like mythtv or freevo to enable recording (scheduled and live, etc).

looneytuned64 09-29-2009 03:09 AM

freevo says "record server is not available" & "directory is empty" And mythtv says something about a port and no backend.........??? I'm ablonde when it comes to this stuff.please help.
