AccessDTV Enhancements

298 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  jaymer
Does anyone know of any new features coming for the AccessDTV software? Seems like a great card with a lot of potential, but I'm having a few problems with the latest version:

- Doesn't seem too stable on Win2K. It locks up enough that I'm nervous to have a SuperBowl party this year without a backup TV in case I need to reboot! Lockups seem to be related to signal strength. Anyone having this problem?

- Really don't like the fact that I cant record to a server over a network drive. It is a lot noiser to have to have local drives by the TV in the living room. Also, the fact that a recording is split into smaller files coupled with the fact that the directory content is in some cryptic format makes it impossible to copy files off to a backup drive. Don't understand the need for this since my recording can only be played on the card with my serial number anyway.

- I can't get my analog cable to fit into the card due to the layout of the card. Has anyone found a workaround adapter? Software will not help this problem.

- It would be nice to record DTV and analog signals at a lower bandwidth to save disk space for programs that are not HDTV. It is incovenient to have to use an cheaper analog card to get this to work. I guess it would be okay if the same software could handle both adaptors.

- PVR is a nice feature but locks up sometimes and it seems riskier to pause and lose part of the show if it crashes rather than to just wait for a commercial break. Anyone have the same problem?

All points have been raised time and time again here before, can not expect anything from ITech for now.

I hope I'm not the one breaking the news to you for the first time, but the SuperBowl isn't going to be in HD this year. Fox is broadcasting it :mad:

what exactly is the deal with ITech?

I've had my card for 2 months now, but I've never seen this properly explained.
