file compression and offers VHS quality picture. Just about every
system available today can play MPEG-1 and does not need special
software or hardware.
MPEG-2
Videos compressed using MPEG-2 have extremely high quality pictures
and full CD-quality sound. Choose MPEG-2 format for video files that
are intended for DVD-ROM playback on a computer or if you want
broadcast quality videos.
VCD
When you choose this format, the recorded video file will be saved in
MPEG-1 format that is compliant with VCD standards. Standard VCD
frame size and frame rate are 352 x 240 pixels at 29.97 fps for NTSC
and 352 x 288 pixels at 25 fps for PAL.

list
This option will add the program data from the
imported file into the selected input port’s
program list. With this option enabled, you can
access the newly added programs without rescanning the programs.

the list
The imported program data will be added to the
end of the application’s program list.
Overwrite
duplicated program
data
The imported program data will overwrite the
application’s program list when they have the
same data.
Overwrite program
name
For duplicated program data, the program names
will be replaced by the imported data.
Import to satellite’s
frequency table
The option will add the frequencies stored in the
imported file into the selected satellite’s
frequency table.
Note: It is highly recommended to choose Import to satellite’s frequency table
and then re-scan the channels to obtain the latest program data. This is because
the program data stored in the imported file is not probably the most up to date.
8. In this example, we select Import to satellite’s frequency table only, and then
choose the appropriate satellite name from the drop-down list. Click OK.
