Beeline TV
gives another excellent starting point for Internet TV.

  • On You Tube alone, there are currently at least 268 videos using this song! ... Record video from your WebCam directly to YouTube! No upload required. A great site!
TV Cards and software
  • Nebula DigiTV is a superb card for Digital TV input. There are two versions, PCI and USB. The PCI card offers similar digital output to the Black Gold unit but also has a video pass through as a bonus. This card offers many other advantages such as hard disk recording and time shift recording. The on-line help section is especially good and can be viewed here>> with the updates for software downloads here>> Tel 01689 897 090. You can actually speak to a technical support operative as well and I must say the quality and friendliness of this support is superb rating Five stars out of five. You can also use Digi Guide as the EPG Programming with DTV Record as the link software. (see below). While the BETA is being offered it is available here>>
  • DTV Record is a superb program that offers timed recording using the Nebula Digi TV card and Digi Guide. This is a really excellent solution to EPG programming. You only need to "right click" on the program in Digi-guide and DTV takes care of the rest. It has never missed a program which cannot be said for all the competition. Well recommended!
  • Digiguide: This is an excellent customisable TV listing guide. There is also a program that you can have on your computer giving all the TV schedules every day. It is an excellent site and an excellent program. There are several people making add-on programs for Digiguide. One of the best is Mike Derbyshire here>>>
TV Cards and software
  • MyHTPC
  •   is a highly customizable, menu driven front end that allows you, among other things, to launch external programs, browse pictures and large collections of almost any type of media stored on your computer.
    MyHTPC is extremely flexible and allows you to easily build nested menu structures that can accomplish many tasks. Its large, clear display makes it perfect for large monitors or TV sets.
    Although MyHTPC is targeted at Home Theatre Personal Computer users, it can serve many purposes. For example, it can be used to build a simple menu for children to access their programs. It can also work very well with kiosk and touch-screen applications. Best of all, MyHTPC is free.
    There is a Plugins page here>> A Manual is available here>>, an FTP here>> and a forum here>>. A great product and a great site.
  • GDI Black Gold is another computer PCI card that enables you to receive Freeview digital channels on your PC. It uses Digiguide as its electronic programming so that is very comprehensive indeed. Technical support is a little lacking however so it comes second in my book to the Nebula card.
  • DABDig is the second program I found offering TV card recording using Digi Guide. DABDig is a small and simple application that allows supported devices to be programmed to record by using dynamically updated listings from DigiGuide or other systems that can drive external programs via command-line such as MyHTPC.
