I just installed a Colossus following the death of my HDPVR. I have a couple of questions:
1. Is WinTV the only option to capture scheduled recordings? That is, with the software included with the Colossus, and using the TitanTV web site, will it only record with WinTV? With my HDPVR, I used TitanTV to record with the ArcSoft capture module, which seems to provide more options for recording quality, etc.
2. My first recording using WinTV (Cafe Racer on Velocity HD) will not play in Total Media Theatre 5. TMT5 is installed on my HTPC, which is not where I do my captures, so I'd like to get it working. When I open my .ts file with TMT5, the splash screen displays, and the 'spinning gear' graphic displays, but then that goes away, and I have a black rectangle on my desktop. I can move the rectangle around, and close it with Alt-F4, but nothing displays, and no sound comes out. I can still play .ts files captured with the HDPVR in TMT5. Also, files recorded with the Capture module in ShowBiz play in TMT5.
I just updated my drivers to 29361 and have a recording scheduled later today, I'll update this post if it plays in TMT5.
Update: After updating the drivers, my recording played in TMT5, so that's good news. If anyone can comment on question #1, I'd appreciate it.
