If you want to watch a different channel on the analogue while recording a program on the digital tuner, you will need to decide what you want to watch before you start recording the digital program. Our first location was in Sydney’s north, less than 2Km from a digital TV transmission tower. However, you can’t record multiple sessions to a single DVD as once you hit videpmate stop button, DTV 3 will finalise the disc.

Recording directly to DVD can be a real time saver, especially if you’re not well-versed in video formats and conversion techniques and it easily lets you transport programs from your PC to a regular DVD player.
The panels auto-disappear after a few seconds, which can be annoying, but there is an option to lock these in place to keep them visible at all times. The T’s also has video inputs which allow you to easily view and record composite or S-Video sources. Its software interface does have a few quirks, but the digital TV quality of this card was very good and we love that it lets us burn programs directly on to DVDs.

Compro has taken a streamlined approach to DTV 3’s interface and has hidden all the essential indicators and function buttons in edge-panels. Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook. Other times, the recording stopped and the program immediately let us know that the finalisation process had started. What the T adds to the mix, thanks to the second analogue tuner, is the ability to display two channels simultaneously, or to record one channel while displaying another.
That means you can sit through a recording and edit out commercials as the recording gets burnt to DVD. With this feature you won’t have to keep your PC switched on all the time for the sole purpose of recording a TV show.
From there, the T struggled and couldn’t find many channels. Keep in mind that recording to DVD will slightly degrade the image quality of a digital TV program, but we found the end result to still look very good.
It has all the features expected of a digital TV tuner for a PC. A slider in the control panel allows you to easily skim through a time-shifted program and hitting the stop button brings you back to real-time viewing. Sign in with LinkedIn Sign in with Facebook.

We were also annoyed by the “submarine” effect on the mouse pointer. Commands that are in the root menus in one mode are hidden viseomate sub menus of the other mode, making DTV 3 a little hard to videomte. All available digital TV channels in our area were picked up quickly and we noticed no major signal break-ups or stuttering during prolonged viewing.
It wasn’t until a progress bar surfaced, which told us that a menu system was being created and that the DVD was being finalised, that we knew our recording was going to make it to disc unscathed.
Overall, while its software interface does have a few quirks that need to be ironed out, the T is a solid and well-priced card if you want to watch digital TV on your PC. You can, for example, hook up your VCR and a camcorder and watch them through Compro’s DTV 3 software interface, switching between them.
The only channel it could pick up wasn’t displayed smoothly with an abundance of stuttering and Mpeg artefacts.

Every time videomaate main window was in full-screen mode, the mouse would, for the most part, submerge beneath the main DTV 3 window and its control panel interface, which made it very difficult to use the control panel or change configuration settings.
