Timer question...
on Jun 30, 2003 at 11:32:46 pm

I'm about to go on a week long trip and I would love to set my computer to record a nightly TV show. Is there any programs that let me set a regular time in which the program will start and stop recording?

Thanks

Hi there
There are quite a few different programs that turn your PC into a PVR (Personal Video Recorder)and I will list a few of them, but you should check out them individually to figure out what features you need and which card is best for you. Here's a few of them:
Hauppauge's WinTV http://www.hauppauge.com/html/wintvpvr_datasheet.htm
ATI's All-in-Wonder Radeon
http://mirror.ati.com/products/multimedia.html
ATI product is the TV Wonder (USB)

Snapstream Video Station 3

Pinnacle PCTV

Hope these help, most of these should be able to do everything you want them to do, and probably more.
Good luck!
Later
Brent

Thanks for the options...
I already have video capture device, I'm looking particularly for a program that will record a set time. Thanks for any advice.

Hi there
Practically all the products I listed will record a set time. I think the Pinnacle product might be your best choice, you should check out the link.
