I have been fiddling with some Vcr software too.


Have you tried Snasptream ? I found it to quite good and practical as a VCR. Too bad it wont properly support tuning to french channels on my WinTV.


As for codecs, IMHO good choices are :

pegasus Mjpeg (mjpeg.com)

Divx 3.11 low motion


With these codecs, you can record real time at full resolution on a reasonable PC. However when it comes to simultaneously viewing and recording (true timeshifting), it seems difficult to go beyond half size (half X, half Y). And I have yet to find a program which would work correctly for timeshifting.


DScaler's timeshifting support is yet very flaky at best.


If you are looking just for simple VCR functionnality, you could try FreeVCR.
