I have been a faithful user of DVB Dream but have been having problems lately. I have been reading a bit on Prog DVB and I was curious what real world pros and cons are about this product.

I have a P4, 2Ghz, 1GB RAM with a VisionPlus/TwinHan 1030A. I was curious if I can do simple regular recording as well as streaming to a VLC client. Also, will this handle 4:2:0/4:2:2 and HD (if not local viewing than streaming).

Does anyone have a screen shots to share?

There is a quick start manual on www.ProgDVB.com that is full of screen shots. I use 5.14.8 which works well with my Twinhan 1025 DTV PCI card. I tried DVBDream but it crashed too often. It works well with PBS HD channels. I use Cyberlink Video Codecs. Can't answer your question about PVR functions or streaming video. They have added alot of modulation options NBC 8qpsk and works well on DVB-S2. There is also CI/cam module support.

Thanks satcom1 for the information, I think that is enough to get me to install it and give it a try.

I wrote the Quick Start manual that is on his site, if you have any questions, just ask. His software has improved greatly in the last few months. It still has a ways to go before it is what I consider a commercial product. I am just a hobbiest like you, I don't get anything but satisfaction for my contributions. Prog will answer your questions and there is also a forum there. He has added powerful channel edinting to his software. I have deleted all but north american satellites and will be happy to share the Transponders>all.txt file.

You will need some PC DVBS card. Twinhan is popular and cheap. You can buy this from one of the boards sponsers at top of page. a FTA dish Suggest 90 cm and invacom LNBF.

Click on the supporter links at the top of page and look for LNBF. Or just click on Invacom, in this post . I use the SNH-031 and the Twinhan 1025 or higher in number will give you HDTV. You are starting on a great adventure, good luck. Goto the www.Twinhan.com to see what cards you like. then check our supporters and Ebay.
