All features / Full description

Because the scheduling system is rule-based it offers unparalleled power to record exactly what you want. The examples below can be easily set up in a single schedule definition each.
Record any "CSI" episode shown somewhere between 7PM and 11PM, but not the ones from "Miami", and don't record episodes that have been recorded before.
Record "The Simpsons" every Monday and Wednesday on Channel Foo around 7PM (so also when it's shown at 7:15PM or 6:55PM).
Record all movies with "Samuel Jackson" on BBC1 or BBC2 and don't record movies that have been recorded before.
Record all documentaries on NGC or Discovery Channel that have "Global warming" in their description.

ARGUS TV has conflict management built-in to help the scheduler record as many programs as it can, based on your available recording devices. It will let you intervene manually as well.
ARGUS TV is very modular thanks to its Service Oriented Architecture. Recording is handled by modules (services) that are called recorder/tuners. You have the choice between its native 'Argus' recording engine (for digital TV - DVB and ATSC) or the recorder/tuner for MediaPortal TV Server.
Recorded shows are stored on your system's hard disk and can be played back manually, from the ARGUS TV Scheduler Console or via various clients.
ARGUS TV can also be used to watch Live-TV, either via various clients, or via your favorite Mediaplayer, using our RTSP-Streaming server.
