    Anyone recommend some software for watching and recording freeview channels?

    Just bought a dual tuner stick, works ok but MC7 is very picky with signals so I get breakup etc.

    It came with its own software but it's very limited.

    On Win Ultimate x64.

    Cheers.

    I've used GB-PVR for years, we get dodgy signals at times but this handles it fairly well.

    It records shows as MPEG files (you have to change a couple of options as it defaults to .dvr-ms I think) which it organises into folders by the show name (i.e. all of Top Gear will go into a 'Top Gear' folder). which you can watch with GB-PVR its self (the player isn't the best though) or VLC, MPC, XBMC or whatever you like.
