The quality of the video recording and the directory where the files are stored are set in the MPEG Configuration Menu (see the section entitled “Configuring the format for MPEG compression”) by clicking the PREF button on the WinTV2000 application, then clicking Capture / MPEG. While recording: - Live video continues to play in the WinTV window - the Counter will display the length of your recording Clicking the VCD Record button will automatically generate a file name and start recording your program using the VCD record quality. All other characteristics are the same as in the Record mode. This button makes it easy to save VCD quality video, for burning later on to a Video CD. Stop Button: Clicking the Stop button will stop the video you are recording or playing back. Once the video is stopped, live TV will be displayed in the WinTV window. Clicking the Slow Motion button while playing video will play in Slow Motion. To start playing your video file at the normal speed, click the Slow Motion button again. File Button: Clicking the File button opens the File menu. The last file recorded is listed in the File name box. In the File menu you can: - Rename your recorded video file. To rename a video file, find the file you would like to rename (remember, the automatically generated file names start with _dvcr), highlight it with your mouse, and click and hold the right mouse button. Go down to Rename and then you can type in a new name. Remember: you must keep the MPG extension on the file. - Play a video file previously recorded: find the file you would like to play, highlight it with your mouse (one click of the mouse button) and click Open. Then click the Play button. - Delete recorded video files which you no longer want (and Play Button: Clicking the Play button will playback from disk the last video file created. When playing a video, you can rewind, fast forward, replay 10 sec or skip forward 10 sec using the buttons on the control bar. which consume hard disk space). Click your right mouse button on the video file once, go down the menu and click on Delete. - Burn your recorded video file onto CD-RW media in a Video CD format. If you want to burn the last file recorded, simply click Burn. If you want to select another file to be burnt onto CDROM, highlight it with your mouse (one click of the mouse button) then click Burn. For more complete instructions, see the section entitled Creating Video CD’s. The Limit Pause Mode buffer size sets the maximum size of the Pause buffer. Here are some suggested sizes: - - if you are using MPEG1 VCD format, 650 MBytes per hour are used. So if you want a 1/2 hour buffer, then set the Limit Pause Mode Buffer Size to 325 MBytes. While in the Pause mode, hitting the Replay button acts like the Instant Replay you see on TV broadcast sporting events: the audio/video goes back in time and you repeat what you have previously seen. if you are using MPEG2 4.0MB/sec, about 2 Gigabytes per hour is used for the Pause buffer. So for a 30 minute buffer, then set the Limit Pause Mode Buffer Size to 1000 MBytes. Each click of the Replay button causes audio/video to go back 10 seconds. For example, if you want to repeat the audio/video you saw 10 seconds ago, you would click the Replay button once. If you want to see the video you saw one minute ago, you would need to click the Replay button six times. Delay counter: Pause mode Clicking the Pause button on the WinTV-2000 application starts the Pause mode. The Pause Menu will drop down. Video Position bar Delay counter Replay 10 seconds Skip to the end Skip to the beginning Skip ahead 10 seconds Rewind Pause The Delay counter displays how much time you are behind the live video. For example, if the delay counter says 00:01:23, then the video window is showing video 1 minute and 23 seconds behind live video. Pause button: Skip ahead 10 seconds Replay 10 seconds Play Play forward slow motion Fast Foward 2X, 8X ote: It takes about 10 seconds to create a pause buffer. While the buffer is initializing, do not click any buttons on the WinTV application. N Pause buffer: The Pause buffer is a circular buffer on your hard disk. The maximum amount of time which your TV program can be delayed is dependent upon how much storage space you have set for the Pause buffer and which type of MPEG format you have chosen. Both of these can be set in the MPEG settings menu (see the section entitled “Configuring the format for MPEG compression”). Clicking the Pause button causes WinTV to start saving a audio and video stream (referred to as an A/V stream) into the WinTV's Replay Buffer. It takes about 10 seconds for the Replay Buffer to be initialized and for Pause to become effective. Unclicking the Pause button will cause the audio/video program to start playing from the point where the button was originally pushed. Most WinTV functions are active while in the Pause or Pause Live mode. For example, you can change volume, resize the TV window, go into "notitle mode", etc. If you are in the Pause mode though, the video image in the WinTV window is frozen so you will not see the function change. For example, in Pause mode if you change volume you will not hear the volume change. While in Pause mode, the Video Position bar shows the amount of the Replay Buffer which is filled with video. For example, if the Video Position indicator shows halfway, it means that half of the Replay Buffer is filled. If you find you cannot Replay or Pause as many minutes as you would like, there is a setting in the Preferences menu where you can increase the size of the Replay Buffer. For extended replay times, you might find it more convenient to grab the Video Position indicator control bar and move it to the left. Once you let the control bar go, audio/video starts to play (it might take a few seconds for the WinTV application to start playing). You might have to move the Video Position indicator to the left and right to find the desired spot to start replaying audio/video.

Tips on System Optimization: These are tips that will help you improve capture and playback performance of video files on you PC. 1.) Do not use DoubleSpace or any other disk compression scheme! This severely slows down your hard disk. Step3: Burning your converted file to a CD-R or CD-RW 2.) Make sure DMA is checked for your Hard disk drives in Device Manager. Right click your mouse on the My Computer icon on your desktop, and click on Properties. Click on the Device Manager tab and double click on Disk Drives. Highlight GENERIC IDE DISK TYPE and click on Properties. Click on Settings. Make sure DMA is selected. After the converting process is complete, your file will be VCD compliant. Now you are ready to burn your VCD file on a CDRW. Click the Burn button to burn your Video CD’s. 3.) Defragment your Hard Disk. To Defragment your hard disk, in Windows click on Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools and click on Disk Defragmenter. The Hauppauge VCD converter will locate your burner and show your progress, during your burn. 4.) There are several hard disks on the market which are designed for higher performance video captures. These drives use 1:1 interleaving and track caching to eliminate gaps caused by a hard disk drive seeking to the next track. They are available with both IDE and SCSI interfaces. Once you have chosen any other video files to be added to the Video CD, highlight your files and click the Convert button. ote: Hauppauge recommends using CD-RW media to create Video CD’s for DVD playback. Most DVD players can use CD-RW media, while some can use either CD-RW or CD-R media. If you insert one of the created Video CD’s and the DVD player does not turn on the Video CD light or display Video CD on your TV screen, then try creating a Video CD using a CD-R media.

To configure the MPEG compression, click on the Preferences button on WinTV2000, then Capture and then on the MPEG folder. ote: We have found that most home DVD players can play Video CD’s created with CD-RW media. Some DVD players, though, can only read CD-R media. If you are not able to have your DVD player read a CD-RW made using these steps, we suggest trying a CD-R media. A complete list of tested compatible DVD players can be found on our web site at: http://www.hauppauge.com/dvdplayers N Step 1: Creating a Video CD compatible video file While in the record mode, click on the Video CD Record button. You The WinTV program does not have to be running for the Schedular to work. If WinTV is not running, it takes about 30 seconds to start WinTV-PVR and to start the recording of TV. Creating Video CD’s Most PC’s based on Windows can play MPEG1 files created with WinTV-PVR through the Windows MediaPlayer. PC-based DVD players, such as WinDVD, can play the MPEG2 formats as well. So, if you simply want to play your video files on a PC, you do not have to create a Video CD. Just use Windows MediaPlayer to play your MPEG1 encoded videos from your hard disk. can also have set the MPEG Quality to MPEG1 VCD format, and then click the Record button. In both cases, a Video CD compatible file will be created on your hard disk, with the name of the file automatically generated by the WinTV application. After you have record- The format used on Video CD’s (VCD) is MPEG1. Most DVD players can play Video CD’s in addition to DVD movies. The WinTV-PVR includes a conversion utility, WinTV-Convert, which will take WinTVPVR created MPEG1 video files and convert them into Video CD compliant files. File Name WinTV-Scheduler can be found in the Hauppauge WinTV folder. Click the Start button, then Programs, then Hauppauge WinTV and then After you have clicked the burn button, the “Convert MPEG files to VCD format” window will open with the file you listed.

The WinTV-Scheduler allows you to schedule your TV watching and recording of TV shows. WinTV-Scheduler, once it is set, can be closed and the WinTV application will “wake up” at the desired time and tuned to the desired channel. Step 2: Converting Your video file - Rewind Button: Using WinTV-Scheduler Convert MPEG files to VCD format menu will open. The WinTV-PVR supports several different formats for MPEG video compression. The differences in these formats is: Clicking the Skip button will skip the video ahead 10 seconds. Once these are set, click Set Program. You can add more Events, clicking Set Program after each event is set. When you are finished click Close. Note: Full D1 has image size of 704x480 for NTSC video sources or 704x576 for PAL video sources. Half D1 has image size of 352x480 for NTSC video sources and 352x576 for PAL video sources.

Therefore, if you have clicked the Replay button 3 times (so that you are replaying the audio/video seen 30 seconds ago), the video you see in the WinTV window will be 30 seconds behind the "live" audio/video program. While in Pause mode, the A/V stream is always saved in the Replay Buffer. To stop saving the A/V stream in the Replay Buffer, you must exit the Pause mode by clicking the TV mode button. There are several different MPEG format settings which can be selected: If you have a slower PC, try either the MPEG2 2.0MB/sec or the MPEG2 4.0MB/sec formats. at 2X speed. Clicking the Fast Foward button two times will fast foward your video at 8X speed. Replay button: Make sure you have plugged the Sound cable into the Audio Output jack, Burn Button and not the Audio Input jack. After making sure your PC’s audio mixer LineIn setting is not muted, and at a reasonable volume level, you can verify that the WinTV card is working by connecting self-amplified speakers directly to the Audio Output jack (LineOut) on the WinTV board. Problem: Poor image when running in 256-color mode Many VGA’s cannot run WinTV in 256-color mode. Instead, run in 16-bit or 24-bit color mode. Problem: Poor TV Reception or Not detecting all channels: Poor TV reception is generally the result of an Weak TV signal. When using a 'roof-top' antenna, an aerial booster may be required if there is poor TV reception. If you find that some or all of the channels have not been detected, you can insert channels manually. Also, in some areas using cable TV, a format called Cable HRC is used. If so, try rescanning (see step 8) but use CABLE (HRC) instead of cable in the Broadcast/Cable box. sound card is simply used for mixing the various audio sources and for driving your PC speakers. If the LineIn volume is set too low, the audio volume you will hear while watching live TV and while recording video will be too low. But while in Pause mode or while playing back recorded video, the WinTV-PVR does not amplify the audio, but instead your PC’s sound card does the audio decompression and amplification. When you adjust the audio volume slide bar in the WinTV2000 application, the WinTV-PVR simply sends commands to the sound card telling it to raise and lower the volume of the “Wave Out” control. For example, if you open the Volume control menu (double click on the little “speaker” in the lower right hand corner of your PC screen), you will see the Wave Out slide rise and fall as you adjust the audio volume slide bar in the WinTV2000 application. To adjust the audio volume, you need to adjust two settings: - the LineIn needs to be set for proper volume while watching live TV and while recording video - the WaveOut needs to set for proper volume while in pause mode or while playing back recorded video Problem: Live TV program and video playback has a "Jerky" effect and/or lip synchronization during playback. Make sure that DMA is enabled for IDE hard disks. See the section entitled “Tips on System Optimization”. Go to Device Manager\Double click disk drives\Double click your hard disk (e.g. Generic IDE Disk Type46). Click the Setting tab and Enable DMA by clicking the mouse in the DMA check box.
