Question about DTK PRM-0031I Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a DT16300-16. I dont use it for Top-up TV but the last few weeks it keeps recording programs from the Lottery Extra channel. I also keep receiving 3-4 minute recordings about top-up. I have had this recorder for nearly a year. Secondly, it seems to crash whenever it is recording and I delete a programme from it?

    Thank you for a quick response.

    I'm a bit crappy at tech stuff so maybe you could help me again??

    When I go into the main menu which sub menu do I go into? I've gone into the menus but cant find any auto update function.

    I went into the guide. The lottery channel is on top-up so have pressed top up on the remote, gone onto the lottery channel but I have no deselect button on the remote and there is no info shown on screen.

    On the customise top-up menu all the channels are de-activated but the lottery channel doesnt show on this list.

    Any help would be good and thanks again.

The PVR you have has preset Top-up TV channels it will download from as a preset. You need to go into the main menu and turn off the auto update function of the machine. Then in your "TV Guide" menu find the particular channel and deselect it for download or recording. 

The 3-4 minute recordings are commercials for their products and came with the last few auto updates, they're trying to sell their product. 

A crash could be a sign of stress on the hard drive, most of these machines have craptastic hard drives that if even rattled or slightly moved while being recorded upon they die. If you're recording and deleting at the same time (with the age of the machine) I would not be surprised if it continued to happen. If it crashes when you do these things individually it is probably the same problem, or the firmware of the machine is corrupt.

    Sorry I personally don't have this product so I'm making an educated guess from the PVR's I've worked with and the general manual for the product I found Online. 

    If the lottery channel isn't showing up it could be part of a different menu. Is the Lotto channel an interactive channel? (as in the PVR has Interact technology allows you to use submenus on the channel?) if so it might not be removeable. Auto updates might not be able to be disabled on your particular unit model.

    Thinking as a different Idea to block the content is to put Parental locks on it. If you lock it completely out it shouldn't download any longer. If push comes to shove I'd call the manufacture's help line to see if it is part of the Top-up tv package and if you can get it removed from your package.

The lap-top keeps switching off and on during use


check all leads from motherboard to hard drive including electrical and all of your cd/dvd drives make sure the connections are good and not faulty and there is no dust built up on them
make sure your computers ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge and seated with no dust in the sockets
could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU you might not have enough RAM random access memory
if you dont want to add more ram try uninstalling some unecessary programs if you scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager applications also processes if you see something running that should not be or does not need to be running select end now you might uninstall that program if you dont need it also you might have a virus shuting it down
any of these can cause a computer to shutdown on you
hope this helps you

I cannot program my dvr because the timer will only show ch.3 what if i want to record ch.72 with th timer?


Go to "setup" mode on the DVR, and do a "scan for available TV channels", to add more channels,
or explicitly "add" channel #72 as an available channel.

System multimedia software with Tv card


I have used a Tivo model 1 for years and love it. But when it came time for HDTV, I decided to try a "build your own" PVR using SageTV or Beyond TV. I have done so and, to make a long story short, I just bought a Tivo Series 3.
Problems with the Beyond TV and Sage TV approaches?
1) Tuner cards with drivers not compatible with running two cards together (Dvico).
2) Tuner cards that cannot accept cable cards and so limit you to OTA HDTV and analog cable channels. I now consider this THE major unresoled limitation in trying to build a PC version PVR to compete with a Tivo Series 3) Don't buy Tuner cards without a hardware encoder on analog channels. This causes excessive CPU utilization and can result in stuttering video when recording two analog channels and watching a HDTV channel. This with a dual core 4200+ghz cpu and this was better than two other MBs I tried. Note: Recently, ATI has introduced the ATI Theater 650 chipset based tuners which ARE reported to have a hardware encoder for analog TV channels. I would recommend this tuner as a starting point for any future PVR build efforts.
4) SageTv has lots of features for "geeks" but is missing lots of features.. Such as an easy way to tell the software to pick HDTV channels instead of non-HDTV channels that are presenting the same program.
5) BTV has a pretty good GUI and good remote controls. Still, it suffers from stuttering and pixelation when recording two analog programs while watching an HDTV program. This is really a hardware problem (3 above) but I was not able to overcome it at the time. I needed a PCI or PCIe HDTV+analog TV tuner which included a hardware encoder for the analog capture mode. BTV has about the worst technical support of any software company I have ever worked with. But the software works pretty good. Their refusal to give me a "baseline hardware configuration" that they KNEW would work with Beyond TV software and two HDTV tuners should have been a red flag that I was going to have problems.
6) I had to go through three video cards before I found one that would give me dual displays while playing back HDTV. Even so, none of the ATI or Nvida based video cards would allow operation of the TV set as the secondary display. This was a result of the huge CPU load generated when making the HDTV display the secondary display and the computer display the primary. I finally settled for a configuration where I used ONLY the TV display and made it the primary display.
So.. After spending three months of elapsed time and about two thousand dollars buying hardware and software to experiment with, I decided to give up and buy the $800 Tivo series 3 PVR with the $199 lifetime subscription transfer price. Expensive, but I spent considerably more (and a LOT of time!) trying to get a dual tuner HDTV alternative to work and .. I failed to come close to Tivo Series 3 features and performance. Until December 31, Tivo series 1 and 2 owners who have a "lifetime" update deal can transfer this deal to a series 3 for $199. This seems excessive considering that BeyondTV and SageTV give "free" TV Guide service "forever" as a part of their software purchase.. That was one of the attractions to these two software packages.
In summary.. A lot of people appear to get BTV and SageTV to operate acceptably in specific applications. A lot of other people have a multitude of problems with their configurations. I simply could not find a combination of hardware and software that would work "without video stuttering under some conditions" with dual HDTV/Analog tuners. The failure of both SnapStream (Beyond TV) and Sage TV to publish even ONE "baseline hardware configuration" that is guaranteed to work under all circumstances with dual tuners makes me very suspicious that such a configuration is unknown at this moment in time.
