However the Power Cinema V5.1 software leaves a lot to be desired (as commented elsewhere on Geekzone). For instance there is no EPG (or at least I could not obtain any data), when you record DVB-T there is no sound on playback and you cannot fastforward (also commented on elsewhere on Geekzone). In addition I thought the CPU usage was a bit high (averaged around 20 - 25%).
I have a Dell Vostro laptop, Intel dup Processor T5870 2.0ghz 2MB cache. RAM is 4GB 667Mhz dual channel DDR2 SDRAM running W XP Prof SP3. Video card is NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS 256MB. I also have a Express Card Slot if that is a better option than USB.
What is the best software that allows me to solve the issues above and optimises DVB-T transmission in NZ? I have read about GB-PVR, DB Viewer etc, but what is the best one that works best 'out of the box' as I am not much up from a lay person with these issues.
