    Beyond TV

    My Thoughts

    BeyondTV is a PVR application that runs under windows. It allows you to watch live television, rewind, pause, record, and fast forward it just like you would with a dedicated hardware solution. It allows you to schedule shows and have them recorded, both single shows and movies, and entire seasons based upon whatever criteria to give it. Only new ones, only repeats, whatever you want. Just like a dedicated hardware solution.

    It also supports multiple tuners, unlike a dedicated hardware solution. Yeah, you might get something that will record on two channels, and you can always buy two or three Tivos, but that is a pain in the rear unless you have a serious setup down in your basement with some sort of logic controller running it all. BTV supports multiple tuners out of the box.

    Currently I have 2 tuners and have Beyond TV Link. Beyond TV Link is a program that allows you to connect another computer to your Beyond TV computer and has the same interface. It's kind of like having a remote desktop, except with Beyond TV. You can do all the same things that you can do with Beyond TV.

    I've had Beyond TV for a couple of months and love it. I love having DVR without having tp pay a monthly fee. Picture quality took a little setting up. Once that was completed, everything runs great. I haven't tried the dvd burning software. I can't see wasting dvd's just to watch a couple shows. I do have a laptop that I put tv shows on to watch later. I recommend Beyond TV to anyone that wants to turn a computer into a dvr.

    You can always download the demo and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
