||SmartDVB is an unpretentious digital-tv watch application for satellite, terrestrial or cable TV cards.

It also allows for HTPC/PVR functionality through SmartOSD and legacy video renderer OSD. New OSD includes Options menu for quick PVR like access, better integrated EPG, Teletext, graphical timeshift, program data, zoom, custom graphics station list and also logo support.

i have been using vlc player to rec and watch tv only problem is that vlc player will rec every channel on the frequency and also when watching tv some programs will be interlaced so i have been using mediaplayer classic to watch tv as it can use my video card to decode the video and its also make the video look alot better not interlaced but you cant rec video with mediaplayer classic
but thanks too this great app i have the best of both these app and now i can rec 1 channel and watch another channel even if its not on the same frequency
and this app is free WOW
Great software! Although the interface looks just a teensy bit outdated - who cares in view of the rest!
I got a Terratec Cinergy HTC Stick (USB-connection) a few days ago. The delivered software is a Terratec-version of DVBViewer. Alas, took almost 4(!) hours to detect all the available DVB-C channels and channel switching takes sometimes up to 15 or 20 sec. The interface looks a bit smarter - but recording options are close to none especially regarding video/audio quality.
Here SmartDVB outsmarts! Seeking all available DVB-C channels took less than 5 minutes(!) (same hardware, same system), channel-switching is smooth and fast, i.e. instantly!
And there are numerous settings available in the recording section. Have to try those yet.
Keep up the good work!
"...unpretentious digital-tv watch application" - maybe "unpretentious", but for me (i own a Leadtek PxDVR3200H tunercard) it's working in really fullHD, crystal-clear and without any problem, with only 5-8% use of CPU. Thanks to the author!
