I run into something rather strange than annoyng, please help me understnad what is going on...
Please see my signature for hardware, I am using Powercinema 5.1 supplied with the Nova-T 500 HD card, under XP Pro SP2.
Imagine this situation:
- you turn the pc on, I set powercinema to run at startup.
- Watch any channel (DVB-T), powercinema runs in non-fullscreen mode.
- right-click on the screen and anvigate to the video settings, in the Catalyst Control Centre.
- do anymodification you wish and press "Apply".
- now, the strangest thing happens: the image runnung in Powercinema window goes black for a split of a second and... start to play from the beginning, when you accessed that channel.
It is like there is a recording running in the background from the moment I start powercinema, like a buffer or something like this. I do not recall setting any buffer size during PowerCinema installation... If I just watch tv and press "record", the recording starts (no screen indication that there is a recording in progress, though... and the recorded scene has no image when plyed back, only sound, but this is to be discussed in a different topic I suppose).
When I try to change channel, I get a message that the recording had to be stopped, options are yes/no. I found this hard to explain, as the specification says you can record one channel and continue to surf and watch another channel while the recording goes on.
Maybe this is why I cannot change channel during recording: because one tuner is already recording, right from the moment when Powercinema is launched. Of course then I cannot change channel without stopping the recording I WANT, because my recording is in fact on the second tuner. I have no idea how to stop the other one (which I do not want)...
I would expect the memory to get full and crash, but it never happens, even if you watch tv for hours in a row (without changing channels, or changing channels as well).
Does it make any sense? Did I explain clear enough what is happening and my theory about why is happening?
