Question about Televison & Video
Universal hand held remote controls for television receivers vary in price and functionality.
some features to look for in a universal remote
1. Is it well supported and documented on the internet
2. Are your devices listed in it's data base
3. Does it list devices you think you may use in the future.
4. Does it have a nice easy to read display
5. Does it have easy to read buttons
6. Is it dammage resistant
And how much you're willing to pay for those features.
Thats the past !
Now the other part of the story.
Television sets are fast becomming a thing of the past because of the internet
a person can easly use their PC to watch television by getting a Tuner Capture Card or USB tuner capture device.
How I watch television on my own computer
I use an internal PCI single tuner capture card made by eVGA nvida called the NVTV and a program called "MediaPortal" an open source alternative to Microsofts MediaCenter
eVGA NVTV single tuner capture card was made for Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition ONLY
"MediaPortal" supports NVTV single tuner capture card under Microsoft Windows XP since the core driver for the card also worked under Microsoft Windows XP or XP pro or ( XP HOME which I've not tested ) You should only need MediaPortal unless
1. you have an internal PCI tuner capture card and have no other solutions
2. have a situation like mine where you have a no longer supported tuner capture card
3. if you have totaly lost your television software that came with your tuner.
The next move for me is to buy a USB tuner capture device as soon as humanly possible.
Hope this information gets you going.
