Wink For Build 4.00 or higher cover art collections for video/music/radio

Griffith for Windows (catalog your movies and download posters as folder.jpg)
http://www.griffith.cc/

Griffith is freeware linux program for Windows, it's the best one I could find to add poster folders (folder.jpg) to my collection under Movie Library (aka videos)

Album Art to use with Album Art Cover now in (Music Library)
http://albumart.org/

Now you can go to this site and download covers for your albums or use Amazon.

All CD Covers Free site to grab artwork covers for CDs, DVDs
http://www.allcdcovers.com/

ReNamer
(best to use for renaming TV shows, movies with name-xxxxx.mpg)
http://www.den4b.com/

ReNamer is the best to use I found as you can setup presets for any tv show or movie that has those annoying digits either in the front or end of the file. Batch renaming is all done for before and after. The program is a gem and it's free!

Record high definition video at up to 1080i resolution, 720p or VGA/D1
Record at datarates from 1Mbs to 13.5Mbs, constant and Variable Bit Rate
Blu-ray format AVCHD recordings, so you can burn your TV recordings onto a standard DVD disk (up to 2 hours of video at 5MBits/sec) and playback on Blu-ray DVD players
Includes HD software video player, so you can playback recordings to your PC screen
Audio / Video component video loop through to allow HD recording and viewing at the same time
High Performance Noise Reduction Function
NTSC,PAL and SECAM Support
IR receiver for remote control
IR Blaster to change the TV channels in your set top box

Note: Unlike the smaller one in the below this post this one is more aim at HDTV recording say from your Motorola DCT 64xx or higher model Digital HDTV DVR to this model. So you can record directly off of it through Component Video Red/Blue/Green. to your PC HDD.
Now you are talking about something that a HD system can use. I got one of these a few weeks ago and have a report on it here: Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR Video Capture device

That is a nice peice.

Yes price is high on these devices.. I found some Midte replacements for the MVP but they're SD/ HDD HDTV base though. Midte has HD recorder with HDD storge and Network/wired/wireless option that means you have to add your own HDD to the mix still record in HDTV.

Enjoy it. I'll take a look are your blog.. My question to you is what does the interface look like in this PVR HD? Must have to cue it up in a way. Can you share that info?

The device uses the Arcsoft Extreme software that just does what it needs to do - not much else. It basically records and plays back HD or SD Video.

If you are into slick PC GUIs, that is not it. But if you are into watching TV the software is adequate for archiving programs from a HD DVR. SageTV, BeyondTV and GB-PVR all support the Hauppauge HD-PVR for live TV and recorded TV for slicker interfaces.

No I just wanted to see what the GUI looks like that's all. I use SageTV to record CATV. I did use it to record Digital CATV like HBO, STARs, Show but it's better to record that on DVRs we got here. I use the MVP more about 98% and 2% on DVRs. This device you got here allows you to record off the DVR box or I use Liteon DVD Recorder with S-Video in and S-Video out it does have component Video along with Digital Coax/Toshlink too.

Shown in the picture below are two Hauppauge Media MVP one is connected directly into the Liteon DVD Recorder for dubbing..


This setup was back in 2005 but it's changed now.. Still you can dub DVDs into the Liteon using Mintek DVD 1600 could do anything like a PC could without transcoding. Put RAW MPEG2 stuff onto a DVD like you were saving them still have to Burn it but on the fly. The 1600 would see them as files but you watch right away. For $29 to $39 bucks at Target it was a deal.. Not anymore..
