1License and operating system information is based on latest version of the software.
This software is far better than that provided with the DVB stick or PowerCinema. Can't comment on Arcsoft Totalmedia,but this should also work with BDA drivers.
And PROGDVB has a major advantage in that it is free and also has a user forum.
My biggest gripe with Prog is that subtitles are activated automatically. No big deal? well... thing is if the subtitle module is ticked I get an extremely annoying "doop" noise every two seconds.(the noise you get on XP if a program fails to open)so i think subtitles should be not be ticked as default.
Positives are, once i got rid of the bleep,it picked up around fifty seven radio, digital TV and top up channels.
It can record to a schedule, but mute your speakers if its after midnight, or you will be encouraged by your spouse to do so in the middle of the night.
The electronic program guide works well, you can have full screen, window or detail view modes.
You can also rename the channels and then re-sort to your convenience.
This is an excellent piece of software and free, so support the author where you can.
It may be advisable to wait till a release is "stable" before you use. I've had a few instantaneous reboots when using the latest releases, but it is a live work in progress.
4.77 is stable and works great, even without a PCI card.
Overall a very nice piece of software.
