Record stereo television shows, grab high-quality still pictures and archive them onto CDs or DVDs*
with PCTV Stereo. PCTV Stereo combines an internal television tuner card and Pinnacle's Vision 5
recording software, providing you with the perfect solution for recording television shows to your
PC and backing them up onto SVCD* or DVD.
Experience the joys of time shifting:
One of the most exciting features of PCTV Stereo is the software's built-in TimeShifting technology,
which lets you pause a television show currently in progress. If, for example, you're in the middle
of watching an exciting sporting event and the telephone rings, press the pause button and PCTV continues
recording the show in the background. When you finish your call, press the play button to resume watching
exactly where you left off. Of course depending on how much of a particular show has been cached, you'll
also be able to rewind the program and fast forward through commercials!
Experience the highest picture quality:
Using the latest tuner and video decoder technology, PCTV Stereo couples phenomenal picture quality with
features only found on high-end set top personal video recorders. These features include the ability to:
View television on your computer monitor in full-screen mode, or in a free, scalable window.
View programming broadcast in both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios
De-interlace television programming in real time.
Decode both CCIR-2 carrier FM and NICAM audio standards
Record programs in either MPEG-1, MPEG-2, or DV formats with no file size restrictions
Use your computer like a VCR and program it to record any show, on any channel at any time.
Other features include, automatic channel scan, which detects station names and a Multi-channel preview
matrix, which includes a display of detected channel names and continuously shows a matrix of screenshots
of all tuned channels.

player? No problem, PCTV Stereo lets you record all of your favorite shows onto a VCD, SVCD*, DVD* that
