I fitted a Peak dvb-t digital tv usb stick with an ariel included and it doesnt pick up any channels. if i fit an internal tv card will that work instead please?


IN GENERAL these decives don't have decent reception when working in side and with the internal ariel. If you can use an external roof fitted ariel you will get better recpetion. I even had a dedicated portable tv that didn't receive all channels, in France, due to the inferior internal antenna.

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.

Connection of two harddisk


One ide channel can have two devices, most pcs have two ide channels primary and secondary.

if You have 2 ide channels then you can install total of 4 ide drives into your pc.

if you have only one ide channel / connector on your motherboard then you can install only 2 ide drives into your pc.

your pc might also have sata slots for devices.
1 drive / connector.

Installing a drive is very simple.
open the pc case.

Locate a free ide cable, connect your harddrive to it and also attach the power cable. Thats it.

Some TV doesn't have the button. All you need is the remote control of the TV. You'll see the menu button and from there all we'll be much easy.
