Most people enjoy watching their favorite TV shows to relax after a hard day of work, and some of them like to record some of these shows to watch them at a later time with friends or family. ChrisTV Standard is a specialized application suitable for TV playback and recording purposes.
Users are advised to pay attention when installing ChrisTV Standard and to uncheck the components they do not need. Once the setup is complete, they need to specify the type of video capture device they typically use, even if it is a webcam or a DVcam.
This application can be used not with only simple analog TV cards, but also with graphic cards with video input (VIVO cards) and with combo cards (Graphic Card + analog TV tuner) which feature WDM support.
One can rely on ChrisTV Standard to schedule previewing or recording of their chosen TV programs by specifying the start and end times, the recording frequency and the default filename for the captured stream. However, those who have VIVO cards cannot use the recording function as it is not supported.
The application also supports channel list importing and channel mapping (for synchronizing the channel names with their corresponding numbers). Furthermore, ChrisTV Standard can be used in a multi-monitor environment without any notable issues, as the application can take advantage of all the available computer hardware resources to enhance its performance.
To sum it up, ChrisTV Standard features an intuitive interface so that all types of users can play their favorite TV channels and record them, while offering the expert ones the chance to schedule recording sessions or map their channels. The application’s functions can be evaluated during a trial period, and a license needs to be purchased for continuous use.
