Video Burning

Question

I have a multimedia/tuner card in this machine that I use as a PVR. If I burn a recorded TV program using Roxio 8 onto a DVD+RW, will I be able able to view the material on another computer with a different brand DVD burner? The other machine has Roxio 7.5.

 

Since I want to view the material on another computer and not a stand alone DVD player, do I burn the material as a data disc?

 

I'd try it, but the other computer is at our summer camp which we haven't opened for the season yet.

 

TIA,

 

Wayne

Gary,

 

I've had .NET 1.1 in my XP Pro program line up as long as I can remember and I don't remember downloading it. I also have .NET 2 which I don't remember downloading and installing. I've reformatted several times and I may have downloaded and installed .NET during these reformats.

 

However, it is a moot point because my Leadtek card is a software based card and I seems that GBPVR requires a hardware based tuner card.

If you have auto updates set for Windows XP, it downloaded and installed it.

Yes, in fact, you're more likely to be able to view the RW disc on a computer DVD player than on many set top players. I routinely burn tv captures to RW to watch on my set top players. One that I have only seems to like Verbatim and Imation RW discs while the other is less particular. But, I've never had a problem loaning one of these RW's to a family member to play on their computers.

If you burn it as a data disc, it definitely won't work in a set top player but should work on a computers dvd player.

By the way, what PVR program do you use?

Paul,

 

Thanx for the info. I've used a Leadtek 2000 XP with the included Leadtek software for several years. Leadtek has been pretty good about updating their software and I like it better than BeyondTV or SageTV. Neither of these vendors officially support the Leadtek cards, but my card doesn't have any problem, that I'm aware of, with these third party software. And I have to pay additional for something I don't find any better.

 

The reason I was wondering about using data recording was because the encording for the stand alone player takes so long. I have done encoding to DVD+R for our stand alone player and it works okay. Our stand alone player is too old ( a Panasonic DVD A-120 from around 1998 ) to recognize DVD+RW and my burner doesn't do DVD-RW.

I'm not sure if GBPVR is 100% compatible with your card as I've read conflicting posts about it but it's free if you want to take a look.
