Software News   Software News : TvR 2.8 for TV tuner in Mediator
   posted by DJS on 21-Jul-2005 0:43:39 (2009 reads)
A new version of the TvR program by Robert Krajcarz is now available. This program enables control of any TV tuner PCI card working in the Elbox Mediator.

In TvR 2.8, saving video sequence is implemented. The MUTE function in the main window has changed, and ToolTypes are supported in the program icon.


Basic info about TvR you can find in this Amigaworld.net news.

The archive with TvR program and skins (and a set facilitating their creation) are available here:
TvR ver.2.8 main program,
TvR Skins,
TvR Skins ToolKIT.

The TvR program page (in Polish only) is located on PPA news sevice.

I just read the readme file and was wondering what is the format used for saving? I understood the video is stored first in raw data then converted to single frames, but is there a way to make a for example MPEG file from it?

Many thanks to the author(s), this is one feature I plan to use a lot

Wow cool. Looks like TvR has overtaken my own SuperTV in some ways Doesn't look like you can control the TV directly from the TV window yet, though.

Good to see some new software for Mediator users - for the first time in ages!

Couldn't get the previous version to work with any TV card I tried: Hauppauge, Avermedia, VoodooTV; hope I'll have more success with this one!


@Amiboy

I've done some pretty extensive research into TV cards for the Mediator. I must admit i overlooked Versalia, though. Would be interested to hear what the Lifeview card is like, if poss.

Cheers.

@Stuart,

I should be recieving my Card today (hopefully), ill install it and get back to this topic/thread as soon as I have it working! I hope it goies ok dont have much time to be sending packages back to Vesalia.

Once this is Working all I need for the ultimate 1200 would be:

Working Powerflyer Gold 3
Blizzard 240Mhz, 060 50Mhz (upgrading the 060 50Mhz with my non-overclocked 060 66Mhz)
Mediator PCI SX
Spider USB 2
SilverSurfer Clockport Serial adapter
High Density Floopy Disk Drive
And a CDRW

well you could use something like ffmpeg, if the author added support for either jpeg's or ppm's (ppm's should be easy to implement and fast to save to disk and lossless ).

the only thing I have trouble with is the SVHS support, to put it bluntly, it doesn't work for me...all I get is a black and white picture, even if I set SVHS tooltype to the same value that TV and SuperTV requires, it still remains in black and white.

@Amiboy,

Cheers. Good luck. I'll look out for your post.

That is the exact set-up I went for apart from:

I'm stuck with a Blizzard 1230 - I can't yet afford BPPC, or even '060, as I'm still paying for the other stuff!

I haven't been able to find a HD FDD/ Catweasal adaptor, (and am not sure how the Catweasal would fit with a Mediator in place), so would be grateful to hear any ideas on that.
