Ok... Basically, I want to feed live TV and DVDs from a multi output box , into my PC using an RF cable.
but the problems i`m having just completely wipe me out.
I had a hauppage WinTV200 capture card, and with that installed I could watch all the TV channels, including my SKY TV feed, and my VCR and my DVD . This was done by taking a co-ax cable from the multi feed box I have that sends the Sky,TV,DVD,and VCR broadcasts all over the house.
This worked well to a point... the Hauppage winTV2000 software detected the signal, let me scan for all available signals using the commonest frequencies in the UK...
However, the card and software were old, and incompatible with WinXP, and after a few minutes of perfect play..the whole PC would hang.
Add to this, it would never capture live feed in a usable way, it would stutter and falter and then hang the PC.
So I bought the new freeview USB Dongle, thinking that would work...it didnt.
So today I had delivered, an NVidea FX5200 Graphics card (128) with a home cinema kit that allows you to set up a systemn to record DVDs and Videos and such...
But... it doesnt use RF inputs, it uses Phono jacks on the Hiome cinema box that plugs into the rear of the graphics card.
On the rear of the Graphics card, is also an RF input socket (or is it an output?)... but after hooking up a live feed RF cable, exactly the way I did with the old WinTV2000 card, I can find no software that detects the live feed signals, let alone capture them.
I`m at my wits end... surely there is an easier way to do this?
All I want is for the RF cable plugged into the new card, to display all the channels available, and to click a button that says "record" and end up with an AVI file.
Is it software I need... or different hardware..or both?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
